Versapay Merges with Solupay to Enhance B2B Payments for Canadian SMEs

A new merger in the payments space will bolster the accounts receivables and payments solutions available to small and medium businesses. Versapay, a customer-centric order-to-cash solution provider based in Canada, announced this week that it has completed its merger with Twinsburg, Ohio-based, payment services provider Solupay. The combined entity will operate as Versapay in name and will be led by the company’s current CEO Craig O’Neill.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. But the merger does include a pair of Solupay subsidiaries: payment processors ChargeLogic and 2CP. Solupay’s technology simplifies payment acceptance, provides click-to-pay invoicing, and automates AR processes, and will give Versapay additional opportunities to serve its SME customers.

“Simplifying invoice presentment and reducing the cost of accepting digital payments are the building blocks for a customer-centric order-to-cash process,” O’Neill said. “We’re excited to welcome the complimentary capabilities of the Solupay team and its innovative integrated payments and AR automation technology as we seek to better serve businesses through their digital payments transformation.”

Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Versapay has a worldwide network of 8,000 customers and 50,000 users, accounting for $10 billion in payment volume a year. The company’s solutions help businesses accelerate cash conversion, automate manual processes, as well as reduce costs and boost efficiency.

Versapay was acquired by Great Hill Partners in February in a deal that valued the company at $96 million (CAD $126 million).
