WorldPay, a global provider of payment and risk services, has launched the Oracle ATG ‘plug-in’, providing merchants with access to WorldPay’s range of card payment, alternative payment, fraud and acquiring services, through Oracle’s ATG e-commerce platform. The plug-in, developed in partnership with e2x, an Oracle ATG integrator, provides prospective and existing Oracle ATG customers access to a ready-made global e-commerce solution, saving the merchant development time and money.
The partnership forms part of WorldPay’s ongoing strategy to develop, manage and maintain plug-ins with the major e-commerce platforms. By offering an end-to-end payments service, it allows merchants to reduce internal costs and increase functionality through one connection. This market approach gives merchants the largest opportunity possible for simple and effective payments integration to their existing website, regardless of the platform used. WorldPay already has platform plug-ins compatible with IBM Websphere Commerce and Demandware, and will be adding Intershop and Hybris to its portfolio over the coming months.
David Drever, vice president global partnerships at WorldPay, said: “The global nature of e-commerce requires merchants to have access to the broadest range of payment types and services. By forming these partnerships and creating plug-ins, WorldPay is making it easier for global retailers to access these services and most importantly, eradicating the development time and cost merchants would typically invest to access these services.”
