  10. 10. The Payment Pipe<br />10<br />
  11. 11. Access the largest markets in Europe, especially Germany<br />Increase sales by allowing customers to pay with a method they trust and understand<br />Anyone with access to online banking with one of the participating banks can use the payment methods straightaway and without charge. There is no need for them to register, download any files or open a special account.<br />Reduced risk of chargebacks with iDeal and Soförtuberweisung. Payments made with iDeal are guaranteed and cannot be reversed.<br />Reduced risk of bad debt and lost stock from card fraud.<br />Benefits of European Payment Methods<br />
  12. 12. European Payment Methods (examples)<br />iDeal<br />iDeal is Netherlands specific payment method that enables your customers to pay you from their Internet Bank Account. It is effectively a bank transfer initiated by your customers. The benefit is that customers “push” the money out, dramatically reducing the risks of chargebacks.<br />Soförtuberweisung (Epayments Direct)<br />Like iDeal, Soförtuberweisung allows your customers to pay you from their Internet Bank Account, again with the benefit of dramatically reducing the risks of chargebacks. Unlike iDeal, Soförtuberweisung is not limited to the Netherlands and is widely used in Austria, Belgium, Germany (51.4%* of all Germans prefer to use Soförtuberweisung) and to a lesser extent the Netherlands and the UK.<br />* EuPD Research and Paypal Germany<br />
  13. 13. European Payment Methods<br />ELV<br />ELV is a German specific payment type that is basically a spontaneous Direct Debit. It has the advantage of being universally available to all Germans with a bank account. However, it carries a 13 month chargeback period for on-line business.<br />It is because of this that we would advise merchants to think carefully about the risk involved before choosing to accept ELV as a payment method.<br />
  14. 14. PCI Data Security Standard<br />14<br />
  15. 15. PCI Data Security Standard<br />API Solutions<br />Tokenisation:<br />Removes requirement to hold card data<br />Token used to generate refunds and repeat transactions<br />Eliminated costly compliance for the storage <br />Hosted Solutions<br />Three Options:<br />Payment Pages<br />Fully Customised Appearance<br />Payment Pages +<br />As above, but with your URL<br />iFrame<br />Payment details collected without host iFrame<br />Completely removes compliance requirement <br />15<br />
  16. 16. 3-D Secure – Success or Failure?<br />Some people like it:<br />“I love the guarantee”<br />“If it wasn’t for Verified by Visa I wouldn’t trade online – I need to know I’m going to get paid”<br />Some people hate it:<br />“It’s just friction”<br />“Every time I see that bloody box I cringe. I don’t want to enter another password and I don’t want my customers to do so either. It just gets in the way”<br />16<br />Source: SecureTrading Research<br />
