Discover Global Network and Flutterwave, a San Francisco and Lagos-based payments technology company, have united to bolster acceptance for both local and international e-commerce merchants. 

As part of the link, Flutterwave’s merchants will be accepting Discover Global Network cards from Discover, Diners Club International and network alliance partners on e-commerce payment pages and via apps.

Olugbenga ‘GB’ Agboola, Founder and CEO at Flutterwave, commented on the link: “Our mission is to simplify payments for businesses, in doing this, we open up opportunities for expansion and growth for these businesses. 

“In partnering with Discover Global Network, we knew we would be able to drive revenue growth for our merchants, because of the Discover Global Network global reach and coverage.”

Discover Global Network includes cards from Discover, Diners Club International and PULSE and more than 20 alliance partner networks including relationships in Brazil, South Korea, India, Turkey and Nigeria. 

This partnership seeks to meet the growing demand from both local and foreign cardholders to be able to include their card as their saved mode of payment for their online accounts with these merchants to accumulate the points and other benefits associated with their preferred card.

“Our cardholders wish to use their preferred card seamlessly across platforms, and this partnership with Flutterwave will help meet customer demand by expanding acceptance at e-commerce merchants across the globe,” added Matt Sloan, Vice President of International Markets, Discover Global Network.
