> Taking conference booking payments and membership fees made easy via the web

Wednesday 4th March – NEOVIA Financial Plc (LSE: NEO), the independent global online payments business, has been chosen by three trade bodies to process payments for their products and services over the web.

Each organisation is using the NEOVIA Payment Suite. The NEOVIA Payment Suite features the NETBANX international payments gateway, the NETELLER e-wallet and Net+™ cards. NETBANX allows merchants to accept card and non-card payments through multiple channels including online, contact centres, mail order and via automated phone systems. The NETELLER e-wallet allows consumers to spend securely online as well as allowing merchants to increase customer lifetime value. Net+ cards allow merchants to extend customer loyalty and lifetimes. As well as cards, the NEOVIA Payment Suite supports online payments direct from consumers’ online bank accounts using the POLi service.

By using the payment suite, payments can be taken and managed securely over the internet saving time and money.

The first of the three separate contract wins is the Association of MBAs, which is the world's impartial authority on postgraduate management education. It will be taking membership fees, payments for event bookings and for sales of publications via the payment suite.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists is the professional and educational body for psychiatrists in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. It is using the payment suite for conference registration and payment.

The Institute of Quarrying is the international professional body for quarrying, construction materials and the related extractive and processing industries with 6,000 members in 50 countries. It worked with NEOVIA to provide payment facilities for conferences and the selling of books.

Dan Starr, Executive Vice President of the Merchant Services division at NEOVIA, said: “From expert advice on how to get started to ongoing technical and customer support, we manage online payment system so businesses can focus on what really matters to them.”
