BSP and Discover Global Network alliance reaches greater heights.

Wednesday, November 30, 2022

The BSP Financial Group Limited (BSP) has advanced its partnership with Discover® Global Network to now also enable the use of Diners Club International®, Discover®, Pulse and network alliance cards on its EFTPoS terminals which was previously limited to BSP ATM’s.

This relationship allows BSP to provide a holistic integrated card payment processing service for point-of-sale merchants in Fiji especially in the hospitality and retail sectors. Discover Global Network cardholders will experience increased merchant acceptance.

Haroon Ali, BSP Fiji Country Head said, "As Fiji’s tourism industry makes a promising recovery, we are proud to assist tourism operators, who are also valued BSP EFTPoS merchants, by enabling them to accept more card brands from around the world under our partnership with the Discover Global Network”.

BSP is Fiji’s largest banking network which includes 121 ATMs and more than 2,000 EFTPoS terminals. All BSP EFTPoS terminals accept Diners Club International, Discover, Pulse and Network Alliance cards allowing tourists or cardholders to enjoy the safe and secure contactless EMV payment experience. “This advancement essentially opens access for more than 280 million DGN cardholders worldwide1 to conveniently transact on any BSP ATM or EFTPoS terminal within Fiji”, Haroon Ali added. “Our partnership has indeed reached a greater height and we are keen for cardholders to enjoy this benefit.”

“Through our partnership with BSP, we continue to deliver increased global reach that our partners value as we grow acceptance in Fiji,” said Annie Zhang, Managing Director, Head of Asia Pacific at Discover Financial Services. “As a popular holiday destination for travellers from Brazil, China, Canada, India, Japan, South Korea, Turkey and beyond, this acceptance agreement will drive incremental spend for merchants and honouring customer card choice."

This latest strategic partnership with Discover Global Network reinforces BSP’s continuous efforts to offer multiple payment options and cashless payment facilities to benefit all Fijians and international visitors.
