Through our partnership, we will collaborate on innovative, cloud-based product development to support merchant customers worldwide. Both companies are committed to providing the digital tools merchants need to grow and scale quickly. As just one example of the types of enhanced capabilities we will offer together: Global Payments’ value-added software and payments ecosystem will leverage Google’s public APIs including, Google Workspace, Google My Business, and Google Ads, to create a single destination and full spectrum of solutions that merchants need to run and grow their businesses globally.

By combining Global Payments' leading software and payments ecosystem with Google's commerce and business solutions, we're providing direct, on-demand access to a suite of digital solutions that helps businesses:

  • Manage day-to-day operations more effectively
  • Acquire new customers
  • Embrace technology like never before in simple and seamless ways

Whether traditional brick and mortar, a digital storefront, or a mix of both, we're creating an unprecedented opportunity for businesses to access the full spectrum of solutions—all delivered through our secure cloud-native platform.

Laying the foundation for the future

With Google as our merchant solutions cloud provider, we are also furthering our technology-enabled strategies. By moving our acquiring technology workload to Google Cloud, we will maintain the highest level of scalability, reliability, and security while increasing our speed of innovation and ability to seamlessly deploy transaction services on-demand anywhere in the world. Businesses of all sizes are looking to level up their digital transformation for today’s pace to effectively connect with customers worldwide.

The result will be better engagement and more loyal, long-term customer relationships. And we’ll be able to better support our merchant customers with quicker innovation.

Global Payments Partner

Today, Google Cloud is a leading infrastructure, platform capabilities and industry solutions provider, helping businesses solve their most critical problems across 150 countries. They have identified our Unified Commerce Platform as uniquely positioned to meet its diverse payment needs globally. We are humbled that Google, one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated cloud technology companies, has confidence in us as their payments provider and has recognized our expertise and record of delivering at scale.

I am excited about how this partnership provides our merchant customers with an unprecedented and differentiated opportunity to run and grow their businesses more effectively. Equally, as Google’s payments provider, we’re delighted to embark on this transformational journey with them to further enhance our industry-leading commerce ecosystem. - Cameron Bready, President and COO, Global Payments
