Discover® Global Network and Guavapay partnership announcement

Guavapay, a payment technology company, teams up with Discover® Global Network to broaden scheme access with memberships in acquiring and issuing.

Guavapay, a London-based fintech company, and Discover® Global Network signed a strategic agreement on acquiring and issuing with processing coming over the next months.

This partnership reinforces Guavapay’s overall strategy of broadening the payment methods and increasing acceptance for cards that run on the Discover Global Network. Guavapay will offer its customers debit and prepaid cards that will run on the Discover Global Network, as well as enable merchants to accept Discover, Diners Club International® and network affiliate cards for payment. 

The card acquiring and issuing landscape evolves rapidly, driven by technological advances and changing consumer behaviour.  The transformation of the card issuing and acquiring industry is driven by the need to provide secure services to customers while remaining competitive in an ever-changing market. 

More consumers and businesses are shifting toward digital payments and in this case, the partnership between payment schemes and fintech can be considered as one of the factors that drive the transformation and bring on the market more convenient and innovative solutions. 

The alliance between Discover Global Network and Guavapay is precisely the collaboration that underscores the commitment of both parties on putting customers’ convenience and security first. 

Guavapay is well positioned to serve the rapidly growing market for acquiring and card issuing services and offer even more extensive solutions to a wider range of customers whereas Discover Global Network is known as a strong partner around the world.

A card issuing partnership is fortified by the desire of both parties to provide their customers with the freedom of choice. The partnership will allow Guavapay to issue cards that run on the Discover Global Network, giving its customers access to a large acceptance footprint. 

 “The card landscape has become more competitive, dynamic, and complex, with a greater emphasis on security, speed, and convenience. It is a rapidly evolving industry that is constantly being shaped by new technologies, changing consumer behavior, and shifting regulatory environments. At Guavapay our main philosophy is to stick to ever-changing market demands and try to always stay ahead of the competition.” - states Grant Wyatt, Guavapay CEO.  “The strategic partnership with Discover Global Network is an important milestone for us.
