Diners Club International And Bangkok Bank Announce Merchant Acquiring Agreement In Thailand

Diners Club International Ltd., a business unit of Discover Financial Services and part of the Discover Global Network, and Bangkok Bank, a leading bank in Southeast Asia, will go live with merchant acquiring in Thailand.

Under the agreement, merchants using the Bangkok Bank terminal network will be able to accept Diners Club International, Discover, BC Global, DinaCard and RuPay cards, which are all part of the Discover Global Network.

"By opening up our Discover Global Network to Bangkok Bank's extensive merchant network, we are strengthening our acceptance footprint throughout Southeast Asia,” said Diane Offereins, EVP and President of Discover Payment Services. "Thailand, especially Bangkok, is a top destination for international travelers. As the Discover Global Network expands farther throughout the region and the world, we're meeting our cardmembers' travel needs wherever they want to go.”

The Discover Global Network is the third-largest payments network in the world, operating in more than 185 countries.

“Cards running on the Discover Global Network offer many benefits, which include cashback, rich rewards, no foreign exchange fees and access to airport lounges,” said Mr. Shoke Na Ranong, Executive Vice President, Card Division Head, Bangkok Bank. “The cards are used by corporations and government organizations for employees’ business expenses and have the best-in-class corporate-reporting and expense-management tools. We feel that this means that these corporate cardholders prefer to frequent merchants that accept their cards.”
