Platform

About Platform

Worldpay is a technology company to the core. And therefore, technical people and technical skills are highly valued. Working on Platform is as far away from being a ‘back office’ role as you could possibly get. It’s a chance to be involved in both implementing something new and then going on to realise its full business potential over time. So often when you join a company the systems are already there but here is the opportunity to create one, and then go on to manage it. A really unique opportunity for people looking to mould and create something that’s their own.

The 10 second process

STEP 1

STEP 4

STEP 5

A shopper enters a retail outlet to purchase a product and presents their credit card to the merchant.

Once card details have been taken through the terminal, the request is sent for authorisation.

This is where Worldpay as the Acquirer comes in. Once we receive the request, we forward it onto the Card Scheme (VISA, Master Card).

The provider then checks the funds are available with the issuing bank. The bank then returns confirmation.

Finally, the card scheme then returns confirmation to us as the Acquirer and we return confirmation of authorisation to the merchant who then informs the customer that the transaction has been approved. All of this happens in under 10 seconds!
