Discover Global Network is the underlying platform for Discover Card, Diners Club, PULSE issuers, local international issuers, and the millions of merchants that accept them. With over 189 million cardholders around the world, global acceptance is core to Discover, which is currently accepted across 200 countries and territories. From this foundation, Discover has created a global payments platform that can support a wide variety of payment technologies.
Discover looks at the payment space from a different perspective, built around a few key premises:
Global access and scale: Discover has built its network on partnerships. With each new partnership established, its network grows stronger. With over 20 global network alliances, as well as relationships with key acquirers, enablers, and developers, it ensures that cardholders have up-to-date solutions, strong global acceptance, and evolving capabilities—all backed by a reliable network committed to the future.
Partner-centric solutions: Discover’s solutions evolve with its partners. DGN invests in the latest technologies to offer future-readied products and capabilities, ultimately supporting partners’ needs and providing resources aligned to their business objectives.
Collaborative approach: Partnership and collaboration are the core of DGN. The network is continually adding new partners from across the payments ecosystem, connecting brands to more people in more places.
DGN continues to build a network that can solve specific problems for merchants, acquirers, enablers, local networks, and issuers. Design best-practices suggest a large font size for easy readability both on desktop and mobile devices.
