Paysafe Group last week was agreed to be bought by Blackstone Group and CVC Capital Partners for $3.9 billion, while several buyout firms are considering bids for Danish payment-services company Nets A/S.
"The growth of e-commerce and the way consumers expect to transact is increasing complexity for businesses around the world," said Philip Jansen, chief executive officer of Worldpay, in a statement.
"Our unique combination of scale, innovation, technology, and global presence will mean that we can offer more payment solutions to businesses, whether large or small, global or local, enabling them to meet consumers' increasing demands and helping them prosper."
The takeover will combine Vantiv's U.S.-focused business with WorldPay's operations around the world.
