Failsafe Payments has announced that SafetyPay, a service that enables shoppers to pay for online purchases directly via their own bank account and in local currency, is now fully integrated with Failsafe Payments alternative payments service, CertoConnect.

CertoConnect is designed for merchants to extend the possibilities to easily accept alternative payments online using established local and international payment systems.  CertoConnect is integrated with major local and international alternative payment brands and payment gateways.

SafetyPay™, a secure payment provider serving online shoppers, merchants and banks worldwide, will allow CertoConnect merchants to enable and activate SafetyPay as an online payment option for their goods or services. Existing SafetyPay merchants can now use CertoConnect to explore other alternative payment methods and let CertoConnect consolidate all payment methods into a single and secure payment page.

Sandra Feinberg VP of Sales for SafetyPay added, “ With this co-operative venture, both companies will reap huge benefits.

Real time bank payments minimize the risk and now SafetyPay merchants now have the opportunity to greatly expand their current market reach, with minimal risk, very quickly together with CertoConnect. This is a win-win deal for everyone involved.“
