The new agreement builds on an existing relationship between FIS and Worldpay for processing card payments for PayPal customers in more than 50 markets around the world.”

While speaking about the partnership,  Jim Magats, Senior Vice President of Global Payments at PayPal, stated:

“Our partnership with FIS will help us extend Pay with Rewards to even more customers, offering more payment choice to our joint customers. The combination of FIS’s wide-reaching loyalty program, which services thousands of financial institutions, and PayPal’s network of 24 million global merchants will enable millions of additional cardholders to use loyalty points for PayPal purchases.”
