Skrill has announced the launch of its Global Payment Suite for merchants. The new platform gives businesses access to enhanced credit and debit processing, and a range of international alternative payment options all rolled into one solution.
The new suite is built for merchants looking to expand into international markets; the Skrill Global Payment Suite enables them to accept payments from customers across the world.
Skrill’s Global Payment Suite brings together Skrill Card Processing, Skrill Alternative Payments and the Skrill Digital Wallet into one package. It will allow businesses to accept credit and debit card payments and multiple local payment methods, in 200 different countries and in 12 checkout languages.
Siegfried Heimgaertner, CEO of Skrill, comments, “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. 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.”
