2C2P and Diners Club International to Increase Acceptance at Southeast Asia’s E-Commerce Merchants

Payments

2C2P, the leading Southeast Asian (SEA) payments services company, and Diners Club International, a subsidiary of Discover Financial Services and part of the Discover Global Network, announced that 2C2P is a global acquirer for all cards running on the Discover Global Network. 2C2P’s SEA merchants can now tap Diners Club International, Discover and other Discover Global Network cards as an additional payment method. 2C2P will increase acceptance in the SEA region allowing Discover Global Network cardholders to use their cards at an increased number of merchants in the region.  

2C2P will provide its merchants with single-source electronic payment services for the acceptance of Discover Global Network, which includes Discover cards from the United States, Diners Club International as well as its affiliate cards such as BC Global Card from South Korea, Elo Card from Brazil and RuPay from India. 

Aung Kyaw Moe, founder and Group CEO of 2C2P, said: “With the rise in global online retail and tourism, this agreement opens up key international travel and entertainment markets such as Asia, Europe and the U.S. to our Southeast Asian merchants. Cardholders from Discover Global Network can now enjoy payments access to the region’s travel, transport, tourism, retail and e-commerce brands.” 

“Discover Global Network continues to increase our merchant acceptance footprint in Southeast Asia through working with companies such as 2C2P because this region has an increasing number of Discover Global Network cardholders as a result of our Diners Club and RuPay networks,” said Ricardo Leite, vice president, Discover Global Network. “2C2P specializes in e-commerce travel merchants, an important sector to our cardholders.”

McKinsey estimates the annual revenue of the global payments market is expected to increase by six percent from 2015 to 2020, exceeding US$2 trillion by 2020. The Asia Pacific region, including China, accounts for approximately 55 percent of the industry’s revenue growth worldwide.  

Discover Global Network is the third largest payments network in the world1. With over 39 million merchant acceptance locations and 1.9 million ATM and cash access locations across 185 countries and territories, Discover Global Network includes Discover, Diners Club International, PULSE and affiliated networks.

“2C2P continues to look for market-leading partners around the world, to deploy its best-in-class online payments processing solutions and make it easier for consumers to transact with the payment instrument of their choice,” added Aung.
