Maas Global Partners with EVO Canada to Support North-Of-The-Border Merchants
Maas Global’s Paymentsite Gateway now lets US merchants cross the border to Canada
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
Maas Global Solutions Corporation, a leading provider of merchant payment processing systems in the US market, has expanded its reach through a new relationship with EVO Canada. EVO Canada is a leading Canadian Independent Sales Organization (ISO) specializing in providing merchants of all sizes the best in breed of payment processing solutions.
Rayce Jonsrud, EVP of Sales for Maas Global said “We’re excited about the potential this new relationship represents because it positions us to play a larger role in the international payment processing arena.” Rayce went on to say, “Many of the retail chains we support in the domestic US have stores in Canada that want to leverage the pricing concessions negotiated at the corporate headquarters. This new relationship allows us to do exactly that so it’s a win for the merchant, EVO Canada and Maas Global Solutions.”
The Canadian payments landscape is very similar to the US market for ecommerce merchants, but retail is a bit more complicated due to the widespread acceptance of CHIP and PIN technology. Increasingly, American merchants are looking to expand into Canada because of the lower unemployment rate, stronger currency, and stronger growth factors in the Canadian economy.
“We are happy to support ISO’s in the US with their merchant acquiring efforts in Canada” said Mark LaChance, President of EVO Canada. “And the fact that Maas Global is also a strong payments technology company makes them an even more outstanding partner.”
