Nathan Salisbury, general manager, Asia Pacific, Ingenico ePayments, explained: “Ingenico is the perfect partner for a notable gaming merchant like YOOZOO Games to expand into overseas markets. 

Ingenico ePayments has been at the forefront of global massively multiplayer online (MMO) gaming payments for more than 15 years.
