A new partnership, a joint customer coming soon and plans to expand to the US later this year: BR-DGE spoke to AltFi exclusively to discuss.

Payment orchestration provider BR-DGE is partnering with Trust Payments to bring a new range of offerings to its merchant customers.

The partnership will allow the customers to access Trust Payments’ “Converged Commerce” offerings, as well as its technology, including an all-in-one payments platform, management tools and fraud detection features.

“In a post-pandemic, or any challenging world, you really need to have every tool in your arsenal,” BR-DGE CEO Brian Coburn told AltFi exclusively.

“Every penny is a prisoner when it comes to being able to optimise your business and you want to be able to offer the best payment methods to the customer, and you want to be able to optimise your cost as an organisation. 

“It is an increasingly complicated and fragmented space out there and you really need the capability that regardless of what the shifts are, in demand and expectation, you're able to meet it, because you've got a capability like BR-DGE that offers out that flexibility and agility.”

The partnership with Trust Payments is about bringing “optionality and choice” to the marketplace, Coburn said.

Through the company’s “clicks not code” payments system, it should be easier for merchants to adopt new services without the hassle of creating their own code or facing technological challenges.

With their first joint customer coming soon, and plans to expand to the US market later this year, the partnership with Trust Payments should open up a whole new range of options through BR-DGE. 

It aims to solve payment issues for a range of platforms, merchants and their customers.

“Making commerce easy is essential in today’s society and we believe this will be a powerful asset to helping ensure that merchants can do this,” Trust Payments CEO Daniel Holden said in an email to AltFi.

“With the advent of covid, digital commerce jumped ahead five years in one,” he added.

“These changes are here to stay post-pandemic and businesses must adapt their old archaic systems to support the digital leap.”
