Recognized by the Payments Awards and International Performance Marketing Awards for ecommerce excellence

MINNEAPOLIS – Sept. 19, 2017 – Digital River, Inc., a leading global provider of Commerce-as-a-Service solutions, announced that it was named as a finalist for two UK-based technology awards – the Payments Awards and the International Performance Marketing Awards. Digital River has been shortlisted for the “Best Online Payments Solution (Merchant)” and “Western Europe, Best Managed Affiliate Program” categories respectively.

“Our global ecommerce payments solutions and affiliate marketing programs are designed to help our clients reach their target audiences and accelerate ecommerce growth across geographies,” said Jason Nyhus, vice president of global marketing and communications for Digital River. “We’re honored to be recognized among our industry’s leading providers for both of these awards. I’d like to congratulate our payments team and digital marketing agency for these recognitions and their dedication to building industry-leading solutions and programs.”

Payments Awards
Digital River earned its finalist spot for the Payments Awards for its global payments solution, which unlike other ecommerce providers, offers a single technical and contractual connection to over 40 international payment methods and 108 display currencies globally. It breaks down barriers to entry for high-tech brands looking to expand their online presence into new geographies.

Organized by FSTech and sister title Retail Systems, the Payments Awards recognize excellence and innovation in the payments sector. Now in their fifth year, the awards are regarded as a benchmark in the card and payment sector, distinguishing nominees, individuals, companies and organizations that have launched and implemented the most outstanding payments solutions, initiatives and projects during the past year. This year’s winners will be announced at The Payments Awards Gala Dinner and Ceremony on Nov. 16, 2017, at the London Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square.

International Performance Marketing Awards
The International Performance Marketing Awards recognized Digital River for the successful affiliate program it managed in Europe for one of its consumer technology clients. Digital River’s MarketForce™ marketing agency found creative ways to expand and diversify as well as generate double digit year-over-year revenue growth across their affiliate network.

The International Performance Marketing Awards 2017 winners will be announced on Oct. 23, 2017, at Hilton Bankside, London. Since its inception in 2007, The Performance Marketing Awards have grown into the largest and leading ceremony for rewarding performance marketing innovation and excellence globally.
