LONDON and ISTANBUL, January 11, 2018 – Industry leaders enter into partnership to back up local card acquiring capabilities.

Worldpay, the provider of secure payment services for small and large businesses, including payments online, has shaken hands with iyzico, the provider of a wide range of payment possibilities in Eastern Europe and Turkey, to extend its payment services into Turkey. This joint effort is foremost in the Turkish market, facilitating merchants worldwide to acquire credit and debit card payments locally.

Worldpay enables international businesses to work with a single payments provider throughout diverse markets, including Turkey, equipping them to enhance transaction success rates and get benefit out from reduced operating costs. Transaction success rates of Global eCommerce players were found to elevate by up to 74% via processing locally through iyzico.

eCommerce in Turkey is set to grow at a CAGR of 13 percent over the next four years, on track to be worth $17 billion by 2021 according to Worldpay’s annual Global Payments Report. Worldpay is ideally placed to help companies capitalise on opportunities presented by a highly dynamic market with huge growth potential.

Shane Happach, the CEO of Global eCom at Worldpay said: “The data surrounding the Turkish eCommerce market is pointing to explosive growth in the coming years. Everything about this country – from local regulations to its preferred payment methods – demand that merchants enter with a tailored strategy. We’re delighted to partner with iyzico, an industry leader, to offer our customers the local expertise to navigate the Turkish eCommerce market and tap into this opportunity.”

Customers are selecting the Worldpay-iyzico partnership for processing payments in Turkey as a result of their global expertise; support for major card brands Visa, Mastercard and American Express; Turkish local card brand Troy; and the local instalment payment options favoured by Turkish consumers, such as Bonus, Maximum, Paraf, World, Cardfinans, Axess, and Advantage.

Barbaros Ozbugutu, the CEO of iyzico said: “With a fast-growing economy, underpinned by strong consumer spending, Turkey is a huge potential market for global businesses, especially as 21.5 million online shoppers are generating $10 billion in eCommerce sales. But to unlock this potential, there are important considerations for international merchants. The key to success is to offer consumers a seamless shopping experience under unprecedented local expertise, just as they would expect with local brands. Our local payments know-how combined with Worldpay’s expertise will enable global merchants to process locally, thus increasing checkout conversion rates by up to 25%, as well as boosting acceptance rates by up to 91%. This, obviously, will be an important contribution to Turkey’s growth in the global eCommerce market”.

Classic video games selling for large sums

Published

Everything comes back around in popularity or at least that is what they say. It has happened with vinyl records and now the same is occurring with retro video games. Yes, classic video games have become popular as children of the 1980s and 1990s have grown older and moved into the workforce. But classic games haven’t just become popular to play. People are spending large sums of money on classic games from 20 and 30 years ago and owners who sell the games are making tidy sums. Gamers looking for classic games online can find free casino slot games inspired by retro video games.

Why are classic games popular again?

Classic video games are becoming popular as many older gamers look for a nostalgia factor. Playing games from their childhood brings back memories of yesteryear. Old Nintendo games are a link to the past for many gamers and it is something they don’t want to lose. Nintendo announced in August that it would release a back catalogue of classic games for a new platform. The move will capitalise on the growing number of people looking for older games rather than newer ones. Many older games have inspired online slots which has driven their popularity sky-high.

In addition to personal reasons, today’s mega-blockbuster video games are seen as too violent by many. While video games of the past were an escape from reality, modern games are based – at least loosely – on the problems of the world. From first person shooters to Grand Theft Auto, many older gamers want to play games that don’t reflect reality.

How much are rare video games worth?

A recent study of rare and nostalgic video games from the last 30 years has found a number of old games selling for large sums of money. According to one source, a copy of Nintendo’s Campus Challenge 1991 sells for around $22,000. Amazingly, the now rare game cost just $30 back in 1991. Gamers who had a copy could cash-in on Campus Challenge if they are able to find it. Other rare games selling for big money include the 1988 Sega Megadrive edition of Tetris and Atari’s Air Raid from 1982.

Ultimate 11 is another that is high on the rare games list. According to reports, only 10 copies exist and each goes for $10,000. Kizuna Encounter had only 15 English versions created and is reportedly worth $13,000. One video game collector paid $55,000 for a copy of both games in 2009.

…And then there’s E.T.

In 1982, Atari rushed E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial video game into the marketplace. Atari gave E.T.’s creator just five and a half weeks to develop the game. The company wanted it out in time for Christmas and to reap the rewards of the holiday season. The rushed game was awful and gamers hated it. It barely sold and Atari had warehouses chocked full of E.T. games it couldn’t sell. Unable to move the games and with Atari becoming obsolete by the mid-1980s, the company buried hundreds of thousands of copies of E.T. and other games in the New Mexico desert. Some have been dug up and rare copies of the game have sold for $1,535 at auction. The excavators of the long-lost cartridges found 900 E.T. games in total. After selling them on eBay, the group made $108,000.
