WorldPay said it will leverage YESpay’s technology to offer its UK clients a complete payment service, including merchant acquiring, card processing and payment terminals integrated with point-of-sale (POS) systems. The combined service will allow WorldPay and YESpay customers to fully exploit the evolving needs of omni-channel shoppers with a single payment service operating in-store, online and on mobile.
On completion of the deal, WorldPay will acquire YESpay’s businesses and assets including payment platforms and technologies, its 150 employees, based in the UK, Canada and India and over 3,000 customer relationships.
