With its recently introduced new bureau service, merchants can directly accept and settle card payments through Neovia’s Netbanx service without the complexity and cost of managing an additional bank direct acquiring relationship.

The new service provides focused solutions for medium and large businesses including: new MasterCard and VISA acquiring and processing without the need for managing a direct bank relationship or merchant account; fault tolerant processing platform with second physical data-centre location with optional disaster recovery; multi-channel Cardholder-Not-Present (CNP) service; fully PCI DSS Level 1 compliant and certified service; additional payment support for global processing of American Express, PayPal, Neteller, Ukash, and direct-from-bank payments such as iDEAL, Giropay, and direct debit; multicurrency processing and settlement support with multi-lingual checkout pages and a single integration to all payment types.

The Neovia Payment Network simplifies payments for businesses improving customer experience, margins and lifetime value. It includes the international Netbanx payments processing service for merchants, member and card services through the Neteller payment account.

Netbanx allows merchants to accept and settle card and non-card payments through multiple channels including online, contact centres, mail order and via automated phone systems. Via Neteller merchants can offer their loyal customers a branded payment account that allows instant and direct settlement that avoids the complexities and costs of traditional card schemes; the embedded Net+ card allows consumers to spend at over 30 million MasterCard locations worldwide.

Dan Starr, chief marketing officer at Neovia Financial, said: “With Neovia’s upgraded merchant services bureau, companies in a wide range of industries can benefit from our best-in-class pricing, simple interface and comprehensive back-office reporting. This service also provides direct marketing channels which help merchants to reach out to customers and increase their revenue.”
