12 Months of Highlights from PCI Pal
PCI Pal Innovation and Expansion
Throughout 2021, PCI Pal continued to work closely with our partner ecosystem – strengthening existing relationships and forging new ones.
- PCI Pal and Amazon Connect (AWS)
PCI Pal became the first truly global secure payments provider available in AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog that makes it easy for organisations to discover, procure, entitle, provision, and govern third-party software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS). This new integration with Amazon Connect offers our global customers additional options for payment security and compliance with PCI Pal omnichannel secure payment solutions.
- Worldpay Partner Integration
We expanded our integration with Worldpay from FIS. With businesses increasingly relying on an omnichannel customer experience, Worldpay from FIS allows businesses to take smarter payments by making payment acceptance streamlined and offering flexibility for merchants to accept both traditional and alternative payment types anywhere, any time, on any device and across channels.
