Partnership which will enable cloudBuy customers a new fast-track service for merchant accounts

WorldpaycloudBuy plc, the cloud eCommerce marketplace, and Worldpay, the UK leader in payments, have agreed a partnership which will enable cloudBuy customers a new fast-track service for merchant accounts.

The deal will allow approximately 117 local authorities across the UK, to start taking debit, credit and commercial card payments though their local marketplace website, giving their customers an easy to use payment option when shopping online.

Partners for the last 10 years, cloudBuy and Worldpay have agreed a highly competitive proposition for cloudBuy customers, many of which provide access to local health and social care services.

By taking online card payments, these local authorities are making it easier for people to access a wider range of health and social care products and services, from pre-approved suppliers.

Local authorities will also benefit from speedy settlement back into their business account, freeing up administration time previously spent collecting and chasing payments.

As cloudBuy marketplace websites are so easy to use, they are quickly being adopted by many local authorities across the UK. Care is a particularly complex area for ecommerce, and each local authority has thousands of suppliers.

cloudBuy is the only ecommerce provider to the UK care provider community.

   With the Worldpay partnership, we can now provide new and existing customers, a faster, more competitive merchant account referral service, which will allow them to start taking Visa and MasterCard payments through our ecommerce websites in a matter of days.
Ronald Duncan, Chairman of cloudBuy commented.

   We are pleased to be working with cloudBuy to help more local authorities provide simpler, easier payment services. These authorities provide a vital service to the community, so they deserve to get all the benefits of trading online - quicker payments, greater security, and swift settlement.
Dave Hobday, Managing Director of Worldpay UK, commented.
