The Payment Service Provider processed a total of 137 million online transactions throughout 2012, representing 16.6 billion euros transferred over its platforms across 76 countries.

Brussels, 24 January 2013 - Despite the economic crisis, Ogone has enjoyed a 35.4% increase in turnover processed on its platforms in 2012 and expects similar growth figures for 2013. This significant evolution opens up promising opportunities for the online market in general, for Ogone's future and its 40,000 clients in particular.

With a worldwide presence featuring a strong pan-European focus, Ogone is now reinforcing its activity in the USA and in India, as well as prospecting new markets such as Asia. In terms of vision, this leading e-commerce player plans to further invest in product innovation and development in order to enrich its solutions for fraud prevention and financial services. One of these future-proof solutions is Ogone Collect, which allows merchants to accept the most popular local and international payment methods in several countries and currencies through a single contract. Ogone is also looking forward to helping shape the transition towards mobile payments and further capitalises on its e-Money licence. With this licence, Ogone can offer a white-label solution which enables e-merchants, telecom operators and banks to offer their own mobile payment services for their customers and prospects.

"Thanks to our clear focus, a constantly growing team and the opening of subsidiaries in new regions of the world, Ogone is superbly positioned to play an active role in worldwide e-commerce and to be a brand inspiring trust to merchants and their respective e-customers."
