The Sky’s the Limit as StrataPay Signs with TNS
SYDNEY--(AllPayNews)--Innovative Australian payments processor StrataPay is tapping into its growth market, by choosing Transaction Network Services (NYSE:TNS) and its card-not-present payment solution which has been designed to expand with growing businesses.
StrataPay is using TNS’ Merchant Payment Gateway Solution to process payments made by its client’s customers online and over the phone.
Formed in 2000, StrataPay provides merchants with payments services, helping them to simplify the accounts receivable process and improve cash flow. It has expanded to cover more than 35 industries across Australia and is helping streamline collection and payment services for almost 6,000 registered billers, by offering eight common payments channels for customers to settle levy notices.
Tony Irvine, Chief Operating Officer for StrataPay, said: “TNS’ Merchant Payment Gateway ideally suits our needs as a growing business, giving us the flexibility to handle more and more merchant profiles as our business expands.
“As a payment processor, scale is extremely important and TNS provides this, as well as the capability to tackle other markets in the future. This is a vital advantage in the competitive landscape in which we find ourselves and helps us to meet our compliance obligations as well.
“We were able to structure an arrangement with TNS that encouraged our business to grow and reward both parties as a result. TNS’ reputation and our own experiences with them at previous companies gave us the confidence they could deliver.”
Once the appropriate information is passed to TNS, a same day service arrangement enables merchants to begin processing live transactions within hours.
Chris Hughes, Vice President of Sales at TNS Asia Pacific, said: “At TNS we are focussed on delivering business value, which not only meets our customer’s requirements today, but provides them with a platform to capitalise on future opportunities and market growth. StrataPay is a great example of a company operating in a dynamic marketplace with huge potential. Our Merchant Payment Gateway Solution ensures StrataPay is best placed to leverage its leading position.”
