BR-DGE and Trust Payments partner to expand payment offering to merchants
- The partnership will enable merchants using BR-DGE’s independent payment orchestration platform to tap into Trust Payments technology
- The pandemic has accelerated the need for digital efficiency and solutions and creating different value propositions with add-ons can help merchants compete

Edinburgh & London, 9th June 2022: Leading payment orchestration provider BR-DGE has partnered with global fintech disruptor Trust Payments to provide its merchants access to Trust Payments’ suite of Converged Commerce™ offerings.
The new partnership will enable BR-DGE customers to access Trust Payments’ technology, - including an all-in-one payments platform, award-winning risk management tools, Anti Money Launder (AML) and fraud detection features.
Through a single point of integration, BR-DGE’s merchants can access a world of payment providers, fraud capabilities and alternative payment methods. Coupled with Trust Payments' cutting-edge smart tools in storefront, payments, loyalty and data management, the partnership offers a flexible and secure solution to improve offerings.
Businesses are combining different value propositions to meet the demand for new sales flows. From alternative currencies to online, offline and mobile add-ons, this concept of Converged Commerce™ is offering merchants greater control, choice and flexibility to create powerful, innovative offerings, thereby increasing sales, enhancing customer loyalty, and optimising margins.
Discussing the partnership, Brian Coburn, CEO at BR-DGE, says: “We are pleased to be joining forces with Trust Payments to offer their technology to our growing list of merchants. Through this partnership, BR-DGE will offer a larger range of payment tools to merchants, empowering them and their customers with reliable, seamless payment tools. This is our latest major partnership as we look to scale our offering with both payments providers and merchants.”
Daniel Holden, CEO at Trust Payments, says: “Our partnership with BR-DGE will open up enormous possibilities for merchants. Our technology will drive better choice and flexibility to tailor and layer e-commerce offerings to remain competitive and grow fulfilling our vision for Converged Commerce™. We are delighted to work together with BR-DGE to help them expand their offering and we look forward to what the future holds as we create payment experiences that customers want.”
The partnership with Trust Payments reflects strong growth in both businesses. BR-DGE’s continued scaling of its product offering, alongside the launch of a number of strategic partnerships, meant that in the last year, the team has grown by 50% with YoY growth expected to double again in 2022. The company has also signalled plans to enter the US market later this year. Trust Payments also had a positive 2021 and recently reported a 73% increase in total revenues to £108.7m, up from £62.7m the year before while headcount doubled from 214 to 428 employees across the UK, EU and US.
