"One of the most significant changes during the past years has been the greater adoption of eCommerce and the rise in online shopping. However, the in-store environment is still, for many merchants, the place where most of the transactions occur," stated Sten Karlsson, CEO, Westpay. "With the integration of ACI Secure eCommerce, Westpay will combine the areas of eCommerce and in-store — managing payments and consumer interaction seamlessly, regardless of payment method used or where the transaction originated or completed. That's what Integrated Commerce is all about."
