AltPayNet as an Acquirer

Discover Global Network

Diners and Discover

Discover Global Network, the payments brand of Discover Financial Services, has certified the acquiring status of AltPayNet as an Acquirer. This enables AltPayNet to provide their clients — payment companies, banking institutions and merchants the worldwide acceptance of Discover, Diners Club International, and affiliate network cards.

AltPayNet is a global White Label Payment Service Provider and Software-as-a-Service (Saas) Company that specializes in providing secure, seamless, and tailored payment solutions for the following industries:

  • Payment companies
  • e-Money Issuers
  • Real Estate
  • Airline
  • Entertainment
  • Retail
  • Dining
  • Hotel and the travel industry

This partnership is set to strengthen and expand AltPayNet as a leading international payment service provider, SaaS company, and now, as an Acquirer.

Now, more than ever, is a very important time to provide a wider range of payment options for merchants and financial institutions across the world.

According to AltPayNet CEO and Co-Founder Don Vacal, “It is really strategic for AltPayNet to work directly with Discover Global Network to offer the acceptance of Discover, Diners Club International and affiliate network cards, especially because of our focus in the travel, property and financial service sectors.”

Amid the unforeseen events of 2020, AltPayNet’s services has remained steadfast and reliable. “Our mission is to take away the technical, compliance, and operational burdens amongst enterprises, so they can focus on things that really matter to them — sales and relationship management,” said Vacal.

This new role as an Acquirer is a huge milestone and responsibility. Given the limited physical presence of customers and shops at this time, offering the acceptance of Diners and Discover cards can significantly mobilize businesses to accept cross-border and online payments anytime.

This partnership is supported by Amy Parsons, Discover’s senior vice president of global acceptance, “Discover is prioritizing working with acquirers that have a strong global eCommerce footprint.”

AltPayNet clients and merchants around the world will start accepting Diners, Discover, and affiliate network cards on March 30, 2020.
