Simplify Commerce And Web.com Work Together To Make Accepting Payments Easy For Merchants

MasterCard (NYSE:MA) and Web.com, a leading provider of Internet services and  online marketing solutions for small businesses, today announced an agreement to make Simplify Commerce™ the payments provider for Web.com’s new ‘ Take-a-Payment’ service.

Web.com serves more than 3 million small business customers ranging from restaurants and retail shops to service providers such as consultants and plumbers, and more. The company has engaged Simplify Commerce to provide the merchant account and payments gateway for their ‘Take-a-Payment’ service, which is targeted at small business owners and non-profits who want to offer consumers the ability to pay invoices, pay service fees, or make donations via the web site at any time.

Simplify Commerce, released by MasterCard earlier this year, makes it easy to accept e-commerce and mobile commerce payments, regardless of payment brand, in a matter of minutes.

“At our core, we wanted to create a product that is incredibly simple for merchants to set up and easy for consumers to use. Being able to integrate payments into a seamless experience was critical, and Simplify Commerce gave us what we needed,” says David Brown, chairman, CEO and president of Web.com. “Combined with the scale, understanding of payments and the trust that comes along with the MasterCard name, Simplify Commerce delivers a safe, simple and secure way to pay to our merchants and their customers.”

“As more and more consumers make the switch to a digital lifestyle, it’s important to give merchants of all sizes options that enable them to accept e-commerce and mobile payments and help them increase the reach of their businesses,” said Garry Lyons, Chief Innovation Officer for MasterCard. “By aligning with Web.com’s ‘Take-a-Payment’ service, we’re opening up an easy way for merchants to widen their reach in the marketplace.”

The relationship between Simplify Commerce and Web.com builds on the successful launch of MasterPass™ checkout services for Web.com customers in June.
