Payment Suite to provide payment processing to help student doctors to study for exams

Monday, 20 April 2009 - NEOVIA Financial Plc (LSE: NEO), the independent global online payments business, has been chosen by Dr Podcast, to provide an online payment gateway for its service that helps doctors with their professional medical exams.

Bristol-based Dr Podcast is an online service for UK doctors who are studying for their exams, currently specialising in anaesthetic podcasts. Students can download questions and model answers for the whole primary FRCA syllabus plus tips on how to excel in the exam on to an MP3 player like an iPod, letting the student study anywhere. The NEOVIA Payment Suite is currently being used at Dr Podcast’s payment pages to process the payment. Dr Podcast is planning to expand the service to other specialities such as general medicine, surgery, paediatrics and others further expanding the opportunity for NEOVIA’s payment services.

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 lets consumers 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 internet payments direct from consumers’ online bank accounts using the POLi service.

Dan Starr, Executive Vice President of the Merchant Services division at NEOVIA, said: “This is an excellent use of embracing the web and harnessing it to deliver real benefits. We give merchants and consumers the security they need when shopping online.”
