MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA/11/9/07–CyberSource Corporation (NASDAQ: CYBS), has signed an agreement with Borders Direct, LLC, the eCommerce platform of Borders Group, Inc.

CyberSource-managed payment services will provide advanced processing systems to safely and securely manage payment activity throughout Borders.com’s payment pipeline. Borders customers will be able to buy online using a wide variety of payment types including credit and debit cards, as well as Bill Me Later and other options which will be put in place over time.
