The global reach of RBS, and its in-depth knowledge of security protocols and environment allow RBS’s clients to enjoy an all-inclusive approach to merchant services.
RBS merchant services - global reach and secure solutions
RBS has been providing innovative services to merchants in the UK and globally since its inception three centuries ago. RBS merchant services are particularly strong in terms of global payment support, and assistance in building a secure payment environment.
RBS, or the Royal Bank of Scotland, is one of the oldest banks in the UK, as it started its operations as early as 1727 in Edinburgh, following a Royal Charter. RBS actually invented a series of banking products, including the bank overdraft in 1728... for a merchant, so you know that RBS merchant services have an arguably long history! RBS even used to issue banknotes, and still does, at least for use in Scotland.
Today, RBS is part of the Royal Bank of Scotland group, and represents the second largest bank in the UK, and fifth largest bank in the world in terms of market capitalisation. RBS has offices in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australasia.
