Merchant Services is a leading provider of payment, fraud and data security for companies large and small and capable of authorizing transactions in more than 130 currencies.
Within Merchant Services, the newly formed Integrated Payments Product Group (IPPG) is responsible for building an evolving suite of new platforms, products and services that will power millions of businesses globally, from small businesses to large corporate clients.
