22nd Century Payments
CE: 1 Credit
Traditionally, merchant acquirers obtain revenues based on their merchants’ sales volume. With MasterCard’s “Accept & Save” program, merchant acquires can now obtain revenues based on what their merchants’ spend, enabling acquires to significantly increase their merchant revenues. Aliaswire’s PayVus™ platform is a turn-key solution for merchant’s acquirers that want to participate in the MasterCard Accept & Save program. MasterCard, Aliaswire and program participants will discuss Accept & Save and PayVus and how this revolutionary payment platform will significantly change the merchant acquiring industry.
