Elavon has hired Realex Payments to provide a number of digital payments services for the Elavon Payment Gateway in Europe.

Realex will provide a localized, multi-channel payment gateway for businesses across Europe, which will combine with Elavon’s processing and merchant acquiring functions to form Elavon’s gateway in Europe. Realex will also supply sales support, and outsourced and localized technology services for clients. Elavon, a subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp, provides processing in the U.S., Europe and other global markets.

“This is a major partnership for us; we are strategically positioned to offer our partners a holistic and compelling offering that truly enables them to grow their ecommerce business,” said Colm Lyon, founder and CEO of Realex Payments, in a Sept. 4 press release.

Realex has processed e-commerce payments for more than a decade, and its clients include Vodafone, Virgin Atlantic, Aer Lingus, Party Poker and Not on the High Street. In 2012, Realex signed a deal with the processor Global Payments to provide a managed online payments service for all of its retailer clients. It also recently launched Realex Fire, a social payments product.

Elavon also develops payments technology through an internal lab and targets the European mobile payment market with its MobileMerchant platform.
