AEVI and Mastercard Partner to Simplify Omnichannel Shopping Experience

AEVI and Mastercard Payment Gateway Services (MPGS) announced an expanded partnership to use their combined technologies and reach to simplify the omnichannel shopping experience.

AEVI integrates payments and data across all customer channels by providing an open platform that is both device and solution independent. This platform, combined with MPGS’ encompassing digital gateway services, provides merchants another choice that brings payments straight to where the customer is – across multiple touchpoints in-store and online.

The collaboration will see AEVI and MPGS initially focus on Europe, with further expansion opportunities.  By providing easy access to any payment technology and business solution, the partnership will help banks, acquirers, PSPs, ISOs and ISVs drive digital efficiency and innovation across their payment experiences.
