Nuvei Enhances Payment Experience for Drivers Via ViaPlus Integration

ViaPlus, a global mobility company and a subsidiary of VINCI Highways, is joining forces with Canadian fintech, Nuvei Corporation, to deliver an enhanced payment experience for consumers when purchasing mobility services.

The partnership will integrate ViaPlus’ mobility back office, which processes and financially reconciles large volumes of transactions, with the global acquiring and processing reach and capacity of Nuvei to manage a wide variety of digital applications through extensive Alternative Payment Methods (APM) integrations.

Richard Arce, president and CEO of ViaPlus, discussed the move: “This initiative reflects the commitment of ViaPlus and VINCI Highways to enhancing the driver experience with secure and efficient payment methods for the global mobility ecosystem.”

ViaPlus’ single integration to Nuvei’s payment technology platform introduces over 700 new payment types to the ViaPlus system to form a new digital payment network called ViaPlus Nexus.

ViaPlus consumers can now pay for mobility services with new methods including standard digital options like Apple Pay, as well as popular local choices in countries served by the VINCI Highways network: Brazil’s PixPeru’s Pago Efectivo, and Colombia’s Nequi. The mobility company will also include China’s Alipay, one of the world’s most popular digital wallets.

Further benefits include broader accessibility for customers who choose to pay cash via Nuvei’s retail payment network, and the general convenience of increased paperless payments.

Philip Fayer, chair and CEO at Nuvei, also added: “Our mission is to enable businesses to connect with their customers more deeply, and this partnership is another great example of the power of payments technology to do this. Enabling consumers to pay wherever they are, whenever they want to, and whichever payment methods they prefer is critical to the modern digital experience.”

The news comes shortly after Nuvei partnered with Visa, the world leader in digital payments, to offer Visa Direct in Colombia.

Visa Direct, a VisaNet processing capability that enables near real-time funds delivery directly to financial accounts using card credentials, became available to Colombian merchants through a single integration to Nuvei’s full-stack modular payments technology platform.

Visa Direct clients use the capability to enable use cases such as person-to-person (P2P) payments, funds disbursements, bill pay, or cross-border remittances directly to an eligible debit or prepaid card.

With Visa Direct, Nuvei merchants are able to provide instant payout capabilities to their customers, with transactions routed and processed in near real-time.

“Offering instant payouts through Visa Direct supports our strategy of providing best-in-class payment solutions tailored to the needs of each market we serve,” explained Fayer. “Colombia is one of the fastest-growing e-commerce markets in Latin America, and we’re proud to deliver innovative ways for our customers to optimise their payment flows, enhance user experiences, and operate with maximum efficiency.”
