Nowadays, most e-commerce companies use one or more payment service providers nowadays. Far more than half of the online shoppers pay for their orders using e-wallet solutions, mobile payment systems or the credit cards. In order to process these, online merchants need a payment service provider.

Payment service providers (PSP), also known as payment processors, connect an e-commerce company to various payment providers, such as credit card acquirers or PayPal. In addition to technical integration, PSPs often also handle transactions, negotiate with payment procedures and payout. In addition, many payment service providers offer additional services such as receivables management, subscriber management or collection.

It is sometimes difficult to find your way through the "Payment Jungle" or to find the best provider. Paylobby wants to remedy this situation. In just a few minutes you will get an overview of all relevant providers and a free offer.



What Countries does the Payment Provider covers?

Customers payment preferences vary from one country to another. Therefore an online retailer should become familiar with the methods of payment and legal requirements in a country when it comes to international expansion.
