SAN ANTONIO, May 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Payment Data Systems (NASDAQ: PYDS), a tech-enabled payment solutions provider, announced today that it had signed a partnership agreement with Dealer Pay, which has begun the process of embedding Payment Data’s technology within its industry-leading SaaS-based payment acceptance platform. Dealer Pay represents penetration into the dealership industry, including automotive, truck, motorsports, RV, agriculture and marine sectors.
Vaden Landers, EVP and Chief Revenue Officer at Payment Data Systems, said, “We are very excited that Dealer Pay has chosen to integrate our best-in-class payment facilitation technology into its comprehensive payment acceptance software platform. Our PayFac-in-a-Box ‘integration layer’ provides a simple, yet highly configurable automated enrollment experience for Dealer Pay’s dealership customers, supplying them with a more efficient and effective way of onboarding both existing and new customers, as well as collecting payments in a variety of ways – eliminating the dependency on traditional, labor-intensive processes. By leveraging Payment Data's flat-rate pricing model, DealerPay will be able to greatly simplify and bring much needed pricing transparency to a fragmented vertical that has confusing and lengthy merchant statements and underwhelming reporting capabilities. While we expect substantial growth in regards to new dealerships and processing volume, this agreement initially represents a commitment by Dealer Pay to add new dealerships representing $60 million of annualized processing volume by August 15.”
Julie Douglas, President at Dealer Pay commented, “The agreement with Payment Data Systems provides DealerPay with the ability to quickly and efficiently scale our business by leveraging payments technology that we’ve never had access to in the past with previous processors. The comprehensive reporting we are able to derive from the PayFac API’s allows us to present consolidated reporting associated with repair order and/or VIN/control numbers at the dealership level - both sales and fixed operations - within our software platform. On behalf of my team, I am overjoyed to have Payment Data Systems as our payments and technology partner as we continue to provide dealers the best in payment acceptance, security, workforce mobility and streamlined operations for maximum revenue opportunities in all profit centers.”
