European digital payments company Skrill has launched its global payment suite specifically for merchants, which the company described as a platform that gives transactional businesses access to enhanced credit and debit processing, plus a range of international alternative payment options combined into one solution.
Skrill added that the suite is built for merchants looking to expand into international markets, enabling them to accept payments from customers across the world in one easy integration. It brings together together Skrill Card Processing, Skrill Alternative Payments and the Skrill Digital Wallet into one package. Businesses can accept credit and debit card payments and multiple local payment methods, in 200 different countries and in 12 checkout languages.
“The introduction of Skrill’s Global Payment Suite supports merchants’ need to offer choice and flexibility to their customers while also making sure that they have a simplified experience that enhances conversion and encourages loyalty,” said chief executive officer (CEO), Siegfried Heimgaertner.
“Skrill is breaking down the transactional boundaries that have previously been costly, complex and time consuming to overcome, enabling merchants to grow their business into new geographies, expanding their customer base and reducing risk associated with local economic climates.”
