Santander and Elavon extend 15-year payments partnership
Santander UK has renewed its partnership with payments provider Elavon, extending a partnership that dates from 2004.
Elavon, a subsidiary of US Bancorp, will provide additional support for Santander UK’s ecommerce business, where Elavon provides card-present, in-app, mail/telephone, on-line as well as cross-border payments.
“This is an exciting new chapter in our history with Santander UK,” says Elavon UK manager Colin Close. “Together, our commitment, expertise and innovation in technology provides specialised payment and ecommerce solutions to meet the unique needs of different industries.”
Santander UK’s head of international and transactional banking, John Carroll, adds: “We are delighted to renew our partnership with Elavon. Our commercial and strategic priorities align with Elavon’s, and together we can help businesses maximise their revenue opportunities.”
Elavon and Santander UK recently worked together on the provision of 1,100 cashless terminals for The Royal British Legion’s 2019 Poppy Appeal.
The deployment of contactless terminals, which the firms calls the “largest-ever”, resulted in over 120,000 NFC-based donations to the Legion this year.
