Optimal Payments Integrates MasterPass into Its NETBANX Merchant Platform

Partners with leading digital payment provider MasterCard

LONDON, MONTREAL and NEW YORK - Optimal Payments Plc (LSE AIM: OPAY), a leading global online payments and risk management provider, is pleased to announce that it has integrated MasterPass™, MasterCard®'s digital wallet, into its NETBANX® merchant platform.

MasterPass allows consumers to use any payment card or enabled device to discover enhanced and secure shopping experiences with just a click, tap or touch - online, in-store or anywhere. It moves payments forward by allowing the consumer to safely store all their payment, store card, loyalty, shipping and billing address details in one place and gives consumers the ability to make a payment from wherever they are with whatever device they have.

The world we shop in is constantly evolving, and the ways we pay should keep pace.  With a single click of the MasterPass button on a retailer site, the consumer can access their wallet of choice and authenticate with a password to checkout. In addition to MasterCard cards, consumers can use other branded credit, debit, prepaid and private label cards.

"Optimal Payments is pleased to announce that MasterPass is fully integrated into our NETBANX platform adding another important alternative payment type for Optimal Payments' merchants globally. Consumers need to be able to purchase goods quickly and securely, and integrating MasterPass with Optimal Payments' existing capabilities is another exciting step forward for our business," said Danny Chazonoff, chief operating officer, Optimal Payments.

"We have previously worked with NETBANX®, Optimal Payments' merchant platform and have been very satisfied with their products and customer service," said Carl Brooker, Technical Director, Gameload Limited. "We like to offer our consumers innovative and dynamic payment solutions and partnering with Optimal Payments for MasterPass, allows us to offer an alternative payment method, which is quicker and more convenient for online shopping.''
