Tidal works on smartphones, tablets and computers, and delivers an optimised user experience on any device
Ingenico ePayments, the online and mobile commerce division of Ingenico Group, has announced that the music and entertainment platform, Tidal, has selected Ingenico ePayments as its exclusive partner to help process increasing demand for its services and optimise the payment experience for its customers.
As the exclusive launch platform for some of the world’s biggest artists, Tidal required a partner that could support its rapid international growth, while also helping the company process the thousands of transactions per second (tps) that are generated by high profile, exclusive album releases such as Kanye West’s ‘Life of Pablo’ and Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’. Together, Ingenico ePayments and Tidal offer Tidal users around the world a wide range of payment options and currencies, tailored to their local payment preferences. Tidal works on smartphones, tablets and computers, and delivers an optimised user experience on any device, even at high volumes.
With this exclusive partnership, Ingenico supports Tidal’s goal of bringing music lovers and artists closer together, by providing a seamless payment experience that benefits both. Using Ingenico Connect’s suite of integration tools, Tidal had the flexibility to select a simple and secure integration method that ideally fit their needs.
Through the connection to the Ingenico ePayments platform, Tidal can now provide a simple and fast checkout experience even at peak times such as album launches, and offer a wide portfolio of international payment products.
“We are thrilled to provide Tidal with credit card and alternative payment processing services, and to work with them to create the best possible checkout experience for their customers,” said David Jimenez, VP global sales and marketing at Ingenico ePayments. “Their success creates a very demanding payments environment with huge peak volumes, so we’re very proud to have been selected as their exclusive payment partner.”
Tidal is available in 45 countries with a catalogue of over 35 million songs and nearly 85,000 high quality videos. The service offers high fidelity, CD sound quality, high quality video, expertly curated content and unique offline experiences for members.
