London, 30 March 2022 – Payment technology provider, Tribe Payments, today announced it will integrate the Discover Global Network into its core API-led platform ISAAC. Initially this will allow Tribe to process Discover, Diners Club International and affiliate network partner transactions for its acquiring customers with issuer processing being added over the coming months. With connections to Amex, JCB, Mastercard, UnionPay International and Visa in place, the addition of Discover makes Tribe the first modern processor to integrate the six largest international card schemes.
One of the largest card schemes in the world, the Discover Global Network is dedicated to enabling millions of businesses to expand their customer base through seamless global payments. Discover processes billions of transactions for the 280 million cardholders1 and the more than 60 million merchants that use its network across more than 200 countries and territories.
Discover Global Network payment schemes will be integrated into Tribe’s core API-led platform, ISAAC. With Tribe’s acquirer processing technology, merchants can support major card schemes and in-demand payment methods. Payments from any channel and device type can also be adopted, such as online, mobile and point-of-sale. In addition, Tribe’s solution also supports multi-currency processing, so customers can cater for a number of currencies and extend their reach. The integration will be extended to issuer processing so that Tribe’s issuing clients can develop Discover branded card programmes.
“We believe in powering payments innovation to help businesses grow,” said Matt Sloan, vice president of international markets at Discover. “Our global payments network is built on partnerships, and our collaboration with Tribe is another step on our mission to deliver ever-expanding global reach and reliable payment experiences whenever, wherever and however they’re needed.”
“Discover is a critical scheme for us to support, particularly for our clients who are looking to improve the reach and scale of their operations around the world,” said Alex Reddish, Managing Director at Tribe Payments. “We’re committed to ensuring our platform connectivity supports customer choice and growth opportunities, especially the cross-border, omnichannel payments that the market is demanding. Becoming the first modern processor to offer unrivalled scheme connectivity – all via API – is a testament to that commitment.”
