Thursday 28 March 2019 10:44 CET | News

The payment technology group Worldpay has announced it is expanding its business in Australia and New Zealand.

The company will open two offices in Australia as it seeks to benefit from rapid growth in the country’s almost USD 30 billion ecommerce industry, according to Worldpay. It will first target businesses in the online retail, travel, digital content, and online gaming industries.

In Australia, the US-based company already provides services for a number of digital-centric businesses such as travel websites Lonely Planet and Webjet and online social gaming company Virtual Gaming World. Moreover, the company has been granted a new payments license in New Zealand.

In March 2019, Fidelity National Information Services (FIS) has agreed to acquire Worldpay for an enterprise value of about USD 43 billion. For more information about Worldpay, please check out a detailed profile of this company in our dedicated, industry-specific online company database.
