One word can summarize the astounding impact that online payments has had on our lives – simplicity. Making payments online is faster, easier and more secure than any other method, and with online payment providers continuing to innovate year-on-year, the sky is the limit.
Instant Secure Payments
More and more people are turning to online forms of payment, which has quickly become the leading method of making financial transactions between parties. As illustrated in The Millennial Disruption Index, which represents a study of some 10,000 millennials over 3 years conducted by creative agency Scratch, credit card payment continues to be the leader and 74% of millennials are excited about the future of new financial services from online payment providers. Furthermore, according to the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, a nonprofit research organization, a staggering 61% of internet users now bank online, and the numbers keep rising annually.
Through the use of an online payment processer, users no longer have to enter their personal card and bank information on every site they shop at. Consumers can simply set up their finances on one widely used payment service and know that their finances are safe, secure and available to be used at thousands of reputable online vendors. Security when shopping is also very important to consumers (the majority of those who do not use online payments cite security concerns as the principal reason), which is why online payment processors offer payment protection.
Online Payments taking over
In today’s world, being able to use money online, basically means that you can live your life online.
The variety of different payment options enables us to consume everything by a simple click, starting from personal shopping (clothing, home equipment, toys, etc.) to paying bills, renting, hire services, ordering in, acquiring knowledge (online University!), playing and meeting new people, gambling, investing, exchange currencies, manage your account, transfer funds to another account, or directly to a person’s hand, request refunds and declare chargebacks. The list can go on and on…
Online payment are taking over all aspects of our lives. This is why the payment process had become extremely crucial, just like air to breath.
Imagine a well-oiled machine which each part of it knows its job, but the operator (man or computer) is MIA. Same with processing, you have the seller, the buyer, the means and the goods, but no process communication. How can the payment occur? Without a processor, it simply can’t.
Payment processor –a breathing tool
With this new understanding of the payment world, a payment service provider must master all quintuple elements:
Multiple processing capabilities (always be prepared with another solution), high end Technology combined with “speed of light” communications (not to lose clients patient), Safe storage and protection for the data (to make clients feel secure), Regulation (to serve and assure merchants at the highest standard) and last but not least, support a large variety of payment methods, to be accessible to all people from all over the world and increase the merchants reach market.
And when the shoe fits, the foot is forgotten.
A good payment service provider is one we rarely realize is there, revolutionizing our lives.
