Nexi’s digital PSP and collection solutions will be integrated with the digital properties of Microsoft, focusing at the start on four European countries (Italy, Denmark, Sweden and Norway) with future expansion options into other markets. This will allow Microsoft to fully take advantage of Nexi’s combination of European scale and extensive local expertise.

The two also intend to collaborate on payments capabilities integration into Microsoft solutions and on joint go-to-market on Independent Software Vendors (ISV) to land vertical scenarios and relevant use cases for companies and entities in the markets of interests. Microsoft is willing to explore the integration of Nexi payment APIs on Microsoft products and services, directly or indirectly through Microsoft Cloud services and/or Marketplaces.

Another aim of the partnership is to focus on a close collaboration in joint marketing and communication initiatives bringing value-added services and ISV solutions to the SME segment in one-stop-to digital approach, including partner evangelisation activities, developer trainings, and dedicated support to facilitate development and adoption of digital transformation opportunities, accelerating sustainable growth.
