Issues

Efficiently manage online payment methods and channels

The world’s population uses the major shopping platforms, and their easy-to-use payment journeys are becoming the norm. If they don’t want to impact their conversion rate, retailers must keep pace by responding to new consumer expectations:

  • Accept several payment methods: credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, payment initiation and sometimes even SEPA bank transfers and direct debits.
  • Offer several payment channels: online on the merchant website,
    remotely by email and SMS, or even in person if necessary

Impacts

Whether it’s a B2B or B2C business, poor management
of online payment channels and methods can generate
several impacts:

  • Additional costs and time lost in manual management of some payments (bank transfers, direct debits)
  • Customers’ dissatisfaction, caused by an inconsistent or improper payment experience
  • Cart abandon, if payment facilities are not
    adequate

In addition

Payment initiation service

Companies and businesses with high average basket are faced to constraints of credit card limits and SEPA transfer processing delays. Thanks to Open Banking, a new online payment method is emerging to address these issues: the payment initiation service.

The payment settings (amount, recipient IBAN, etc.) are sent by the merchant to the customer’s bank. In this way, a pre-filled SEPA bank transfer is subject to validation by the customer in his banking app. The merchant is instantly informed of the transfer acceptation, is not limited to a certain amount and benefits from secure payment, with no dispute risk.
