ATLANTA, Aug. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Worldpay US, a leading global provider of payments technology and services, has been awarded Best New Product of the Year in the SMB category at the Best in Biz Awards 2015 International as the most seamless payments integration tool for businesses and developers.

Worldpay US provides the payment industry's first and only single stack of language-agnostic APIs for all payment types (card-present, card-not-present and ACH) across all sales channels (in-store, online and mobile). Designed to work with any platform or shopping cart solution across industries, developers no longer need to use different processors, versions or stacks when creating their online and mobile stores.

"Being awarded Best New Product of the Year by a global industry professionals judging panel at the Best in Biz Awards 2015 International is a testament to our innovative payments platform and reputation among businesses and developers as the leaders in modern money," said Worldpay US President and CEO Tony Catalfano.

More than 250 public and private companies representing all sectors of the global economy from more than 30 countries competed in Best in Biz Awards' third annual International program.

In a cluttered and complicated payments market, Worldpay's single-stack APIs simplify payments integration with a one-stop source for merchants, partners and developers. Through an intuitive online Developer Center, users have everything they need, including step-by-step coding instructions, detailed parameters and sample codes for specific transaction types and access, as well as a robust sandbox account to expedite the testing and certification processes.

"Worldpay's market-leading payments technology platform allows our customers to always make the sale, regardless of where their customers buy and how they want to pay," added Catalfano. "And by bridging payments acceptance with consumer buying preferences, we produce actionable data business owners can use to drive more sales in their stores."
