ACI Equips Developers with Open API Technology to Drive Faster Global eCommerce Growth


With ACI's eCommerce payments API, card acquirers and alternative
payment providers have flexible options in connecting to a global
network of more than 350 payment endpoints

(NASDAQ:ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time electronic
payment and banking solutions
, today announced that its UP
eCommerce Payments solution
provides a fast and flexible way for
local card acquirers and alternative payment methods to integrate with
ACI's extensive global network of payment endpoints. New self-integration
, established with developers in mind, give card
acquirers and alternative payment providers greater flexibility in how
they connect to ACI's eCommerce payments API.

eCommerce Payments solution
provides best-in-class payments and
integrated fraud prevention, with extensive global connectivity to a
network of more than 350 card acquirers and alternative payment methods.
The RESTful open API now enables third-parties to integrate with the
network via certified self-integration, speeding up time-to-market and
reducing development costs, ultimately driving faster global eCommerce

The first to pilot the self-integration approach was PagBrasil, an
online payment processing service and gateway focused on the Brazilian
market. The developer-focused, lower cost alternative to integrate into
ACI's network is proving particularly effective in addressing the
payments complexity of rapid-growth emerging markets, where selected
partners retain control over timing and development resources.

"We were thrilled to jump in and be the first to pilot this method of
integration with ACI's eCommerce payments API," said Ralf Germer,
co-founder, PagBrasil.
"Making our flexible services and wide range of Brazilian payment
methods easily accessible to the payment providers and merchants that
are already part of ACI's extensive global payments network made sense.
Domestic and international merchants looking to expand their business in
the ever-growing Brazilian market can also easily access our Boleto
Flash®, featuring responsive technology and unique accelerated payment

"With more and more payment providers and financial services opening up
their technology via APIs, we are able to partner more effectively to
both speed up time-to-market and reduce complexity for our merchant
customers," said Philipp Bock, Founder & CEO, allpago.
"By the end of 2018, we will have 25 connections and 40 payment methods
live through gateway and payment facilitator services in Latin America,
which is testament to the fact that partnership with ACI helps us to
stay ahead of the curve in the fast-moving world of international
eCommerce payments acceptance."

"The vision of ACI's UP eCommerce Payments solution is to open up
payment endpoints to all partners within our ecosystem – enabling
universal connectivity," said Lynn Holland, vice president – Merchant
Solutions, ACI Worldwide. "Faster and more flexible integration with
ACI's solution gives payment providers and merchants the ability to
scale their business, quickly enter new markets and fine-tune their
payment setup to meet local needs, helping to deliver a frictionless
payments experience."
