SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, December 7, 2022 / — In response to industry demand, Wespay has developed a new membership program for the business sector. Designed for payments solution providers, third parties processors, FinTechs, payments systems users, and public or government entities, the Wespay Business Passport helps payments system stakeholders stay current on procedures, system rules, and regulatory changes while keeping team members informed and prepared for the evolution of payments.

Business Passport offers businesses and government entities five Passport member types to align their needs with bundled service offerings, each providing unique benefits to help companies to navigate their payments journeys, such as networking, education, visibility, sponsorships, and customized business arrangements: Access Passport; Network Passport; Discover Passport; Promote Passport and Partner Passport.

“We’ve spent the past year talking with a wide range of payments stakeholders to understand what companies value and need to support their payments business,” said Bill Schoch, President, and CEO, of Wespay. “We designed a robust program that includes both foundational services that keep members aware of changes to payments trends, rules, and regulations and enhancements that enable richer experiences in networking, education, visibility, sponsorships, and customized business arrangements.”

Over 90 companies have signed up for the inauguration of Business Passport, including our initial Partner Passport company, Identifee. Identifee will work closely with Wespay to advance the interests of the payments sector.

“Wespay’s new program is more than a membership; it creates a community of businesses that can work together, share ideas and provide a voice to the industry,” said Vram Ismailyan, Chief Strategy Officer, Identifee.

Members enjoy discounts on exclusive training, access to industry publications, and support from experienced payments professionals who are always on hand to help. The benefits of membership and the knowledge gained help build revenue, stay connected, and reduce risk.
