San Diego, Feb. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Payout, Inc. (OTC Pink: GOHE), an emerging leader in domestic and international payment gateway solutions and mobile payment applications is announcing today that a strategic operator and investor has joint-ventured with Global Payout to head and fund its European unit, Global Funding, Ltd. Effective immediately, European-based Diocles Consult Ltd. (Diocles), Malta, will now lead Global Payout's sponsored Chip and PIN card sales as well as offer Global Payout's Consolidated Payment Gateway (CPG) platform, and other payment technologies throughout Europe and in other select situations. Financial benefit to Global Payout and new customers for Global Funding in Europe will be immediate.
Diocles has an expanding and diverse portfolio of business including the provision of financial services to English, French and German customers, as well as others throughout Europe and beyond. Diocles is also an experienced operator in the financial services and prepaid card industries. The Diocles/Global Funding partnership is expected to generate revenues to Global Funding through Diocles direct use of Global Payout payment systems and through new, external customer acquisition. The partnership will also enable the launch of additional Global Payout sponsored payment solutions in Europe, including the potential use of Maxie Mobile's mobile payment platform for remittance, picture check cashing, bill pay, and mobile wallets. Diocles will also lead the sales of Global Payout's Chip and PIN (EMV) prepaid MasterCards internationally.
Diocles is expected to deliver contracts with three European based companies including: an online retailer of health and beauty aids, and supplements; an international trading and stock brokerage platform for investors and traders; and, a travel and tourism company recently named "World's Leading Luxury Tour Operator" at the annual World Travel Awards.
Dr. Michael Rau, CEO and owner of Diocles commented, "We consider this joint venture as an excellent opportunity to introduce a new and innovative financial solution whose time has come. Europe has already adopted Chip and PIN prepaid cards as the gold standard and we have a substantial opportunity to utilize prepaid cards and the Consolidated Payment Gateway in our own businesses, as well as introduce Global Payout financial technology to many others. We are very pleased to work with Global Payout's payment platforms and their management team to develop this market quickly."
As defined under agreement, Global Payout will share daily management responsibility and maintain the ongoing working relationships with the issuing bank, the payment processor and the card provider on behalf of Global Funding. Global Payout will also train and manage Diocles' support personnel, supervise the operations of all card programs, and supervise the application and implementation of new card programs such as planned General Spend Reloadable Card Programs in the future.
Diocles' responsibilities include the development of new business and the addition of new customers for prepaid cards and the CPG; support a Global Funding office in Europe for sales, marketing, implementation and operations for additional prepaid card programs. Diocles will also offer Global Payout's eWallet system and mobile payments platform alongside the card programs. Global Funding currently has approximately 5,000 chip and PIN cards in inventory and ready for distribution. Revenues from the partnership, including from card sales, implementation fees and card transaction income, will be shared between Global Payout and Diocles in the same percentage as ownership. London based Global Funding is already the program manager of the prepaid chip and PIN cards designed for use in European countries where chip and PIN is the industry standard.
