Paysafe acquired Dallas-based payments busi-
ness MeritCard solutions.
“In the last 18 months we’ve also made two
acquisitions in Montreal. We purchased a busi-
ness called Fans Entertainment, a company that
focuses on mobile development. The second is
a group called Income Access, which helps to
complement not only a gambling platform but
also some of our other verticals and niches with
respect to online marketing, affiliate management
and some other really interesting ways of driving
traffic and assisting our clients,” says Chazonoff.
Creating a Unique
Identity
One of the most important objectives for both
Leonoff and Chazonoff was a desire to be in con-
trol of their own destiny and by extension have the
ability to build out their own payment platform.
“We wanted to build something that was
going to help any merchant category that was
looking to facilitate payments online; keeping in
mind this was 18 years ago when there was not as
much activity to say the least,” notes Chazonoff.
