Payments Views – Who We’re Watching in Payments 2012

Over on Payments Views, our sister blog, Glenbrook’s Russ Jones takes a quick look at eBay, Google, and Facebook, comparing what each is doing in the world of online payments. We’ll be taking a deep dive into all three — plus Visa and Square — at a special Payments 2012 Workshop being held May 15th in Santa Clara, CA. This workshop is designed for Glenbrook Payments Boot Camp Alumni.

Merchant Warehouse, LevelUp partner for mobile payment services

US merchant accounts and credit card processing services provider Merchant Warehouse and LevelUp have entered an agreement to extend their mobile payment and mCommerce services.

Under the agreement, the initial integration of LevelUp is set to be carried out across the MerchantWare TransPort platform providing a new ‘value add’ for both existing and new customers. The LevelUp service is set to provide merchants with point of sale loyalty through LevelUp and also enable mobile gifting.

Ecommerce Europe: More online payment systems needed

In a response to the European Commission’s green paper on online payments “Towards an integrated European market for card, internet and mobile payments” the Ecommerce Europe, an association which represents companies selling products and/or services to consumers, has stated that Europe requires a broader variety of payment systems.

According to Wijnand Jongen, a representative of Ecommerce Europe, one of the biggest bottlenecks for online retailers in Europe is the lack of cross-border payment systems, especially the ones based on online banking.
