Discover will also participate in meetings of the nexo General Assembly and provide input to the strategic direction of the association.

“As a leader in global payments, Discover Global Network works with a wide range of industry partners with an eye toward continuously improving the payment experience,” comments Cheryl Mish, Head of global payment standards at Discover Global Network. “We support nexo’s aim to promote the worldwide interoperability of card payments through the use of common standards. In the months ahead, we look forward to working with other nexo standards members to contribute to the nexo specifications and protocols.”

nexo standards works on behalf of all card payment stakeholders to harmonise contact and contactless card payment acceptance globally. nexo standards’ messaging protocols and specifications adhere to ISO20022 standards and are universally available and applicable. The protocols promote interoperability between card acceptance and acquiring solutions.

Arnaud Crouzet, General Secretary, nexo standards, adds: “nexo is pleased to welcome Discover Global Network to its growing portfolio of Principal Members. Discover is committed to providing effective solutions that evolve as the requirements of the payments ecosystem change. Discover will bring a wealth of payments experience to help influence the development and implementation of nexo messaging protocols and specifications across Europe, US and worldwide. Our vision of creating a unified global card payments acceptance ecosystem cannot be achieved without engagement from global payment stakeholders like Discover. We look forward to working with Discover to develop our messaging protocols and take further steps towards removing the barriers present in today’s fragmented global card payment acceptance ecosystem.”
