ACI Equips Developers with Open API Technology to Drive Faster Global eCommerce Growth

With ACI’s eCommerce payments API, card acquirers and alternative payment providers have flexible options in connecting to a global network of more than 350 payment endpoints

ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time electronic payment and banking solutions, today announced that its UP eCommerce Payments solution provides a fast and flexible way for local card acquirers and alternative payment methods to integrate with ACI’s extensive global network of payment endpoints.

New self-integration capabilities, established with developers in mind, give card acquirers and alternative payment providers greater flexibility in how they connect to ACI’s eCommerce payments API.

ACI’s UP eCommerce Payments solution provides best-in-class payments and integrated fraud prevention, with extensive global connectivity to a network of more than 350 card acquirers and alternative payment methods. The RESTful open API now enables third-parties to integrate with the network via certified self-integration, speeding up time-to-market and reducing development costs, ultimately driving faster global eCommerce growth.

PagBrasil, an online payment processing service and gateway focused on the Brazilian market, first piloted the self-integration approach in late 2017. The developer-driven, lower cost alternative to integrate into ACI’s network is proving particularly attractive in addressing the payments complexity of rapid-growth emerging markets, where selected partners retain control over timing and development resources.

“We were thrilled to jump in and be the first to pilot this method of integration with ACI’s eCommerce payments API,” said Ralf Germer, co-founder, PagBrasil. “Making our flexible services and wide range of Brazilian payment methods easily accessible to the payment providers and merchants that are already part of ACI’s extensive global payments network made sense. Domestic and international merchants looking to expand their business in the ever-growing Brazilian market can also easily access our Boleto Flash®, featuring responsive technology and unique accelerated payment confirmation.”

“With more and more payment providers and financial services opening up their technology via APIs, we are able to partner more effectively to both speed up time-to-market and reduce complexity for our merchant customers,” said Philipp Bock, Founder & CEO, allpago. “By the end of 2018, we will have 25 connections and 40 payment methods live through gateway and payment facilitator services in Latin America, which is testament to the fact that partnership with ACI helps us to stay ahead of the curve in the fast-moving world of international eCommerce payments acceptance.”

“The vision of ACI’s UP eCommerce Payments solution is to open up payment endpoints to all partners within our ecosystem – enabling universal connectivity,” said Lynn Holland, vice president – Merchant Solutions, ACI Worldwide. “Faster and more flexible integration with ACI’s solution gives payment providers and merchants the ability to scale their business, quickly enter new markets and fine-tune their payment setup to meet local needs, helping to deliver a frictionless payments experience.
