FIS launches Worldpay for platforms

Wednesday 14 September 2022 12:53 CET | News

US-based fintech FIS has augmented the way SMBs gain access to embedded payments and finance through software providers with the launch of Worldpay for Platforms.


This new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution combines the power of the global merchant and banking capabilities of FIS with embedded payments technology built on the platform brought to the company across its Payrix acquisition. Through Worldpay for Platforms, software companies can now onboard merchants and get them set up quickly to have access to the payment capabilities of the payment processor in Worldpay from FIS.

Company officials stated that in today’s digital-first, on-demand economy, software companies need to provide broader experiences to their users. These merchants rely on technology providers to power their mission-critical business management and commerce solutions.

Early adopters of embedded payments include ride sharing and delivery companies that allowed customers to easily pay for rides, and for drivers to have access to banking through a single app experience. They are powering similar experiences in a broader market, FIS’ representatives added.

More details on the features offered

With Worldpay for Platforms, SMBs of all types will now be able to accept hundreds of currencies and popular payment methods globally, across online, mobile, and point-of-sale transactions, as well as manage subscriptions, billing, and invoices.

SMBs can also easily send funds and issue refunds, manage chargebacks, create customisable reports, and get the tailored support they need to run their business and better compete with larger competitors.

Additionally, the platform provides access to customised payment offerings and differentiated pricing, as well as ‘white-glove’ customer support and advisory services to software companies. This allows these companies to harness the advantages of being full payment facilitators without the heavy infrastructure lift.

Simplifying the collaboration between SMBs and software providers

Worldpay for Platforms solves a significant need for software companies that are focused on serving their users with various financial technology tools, while removing many of the go-betweens that come with having multiple software and payments providers.

For example, the solution can help eliminate the need for SMBs to pay separate partners to assist with card issuance, cash advances, or faster access to cash flow. Along with the solutions within the new API-driven developer portal – SMBs have access to the tool to assist with everything they need for long-term success through their software provider.

In a statement, representatives from Worldwide Payments stated that merchants have embraced integrated payments systems because they would rather run their businesses than manage a portfolio of service providers. 

At the same time, commerce platforms and marketplaces have embraced the opportunity that value-added payment and financial services can provide to them and their merchants. By leveraging the broad set of financial services products offered by FIS, Worldpay for Platforms should be well positioned to serve the market.
