The Asia Pacific Seller’s Guide to Payment Solutions
Are you ready to expand your business to new markets globally?
Online sellers in the Asia Pacific have massive potential to grow their global sales. However, if you can’t accept local payments, you’ll miss out on opportunities.
To expand your cross-border ecommerce business, you must find a way to accept local payment methods – affordably – or risk losing sales to competitors who can.
How should you go about finding safe and secure ways to accept local payments in multiple currencies without the need for a local entity, bank account or merchant account in each market?
8 questions to ask your prospective Payment Service Provider
If you’re a fast-growing e-commerce business in Asia Pacific, use these questions as a checklist to select a Payment Service Provider (PSP) to help you expand into new markets.
How can you help my business grow and scale globally?
A PSP should be your partner in growing your business and expanding your business internationally. Do they have an established network in key markets to help you expand?
Is your solution ready today to manage digital payments end-to-end?
Consider your current and future needs. You’ll need to integrate your new payment solution with your existing systems and ramp up fast to accept local payments without added complexity or delay.
How can you help me deploy payment solutions faster, with less in-house development and zero maintenance costs?
You need a partner that’s going to help you grow your business in new markets – quickly and at a lower cost than building on your own. Your PSP should help you receive payments from customers, manage currencies, and pay suppliers and remote employees in each market.
Can you optimize payment acceptance and conversion without us needing to start new entities in local markets?
Setting up entities in each new jurisdiction can be costly and time-consuming. Your PSP should optimize local payment acceptance and conversion for you.
Do you provide key data analytics to help me make better decisions?
Your PSP should also be able to provide tools and data analytics to help you optimize business performance.
Do you offer best-practice checkout and payment flows for a better customer experience?
Your PSP must provide your customers with a smooth checkout process that allows them to pay online with credit cards and other popular local and international payment methods.
How can you help me reduce the complexity of dealing with the payment landscape?
The increasing number of payment providers and channels makes it technically challenging to manage and harmonize different integrations. By unifying your payment provider, you can reduce complexity and achieve greater control over your business.
Can you ensure we’re compliant?
When processing credit card payments, it’s critical for your PSP to be compliant with the latest version of 3D Secure and to offer flexibility to allow you to process a higher volume of payments.
