Singapore — Worldpay, a leader in global payments has announced that it has been selected by Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, as one of its key online payments provider for the virtual credits service Razer zGold.

Razer’s zGold service allows gamers to purchase virtual credits in exchange for digital content such as games and in-game items from different content providers.
