Jena, Germany, May 10, 2011 – Online sellers who successfully guide customers from product selection to the point of purchase do not want to lose them due to inadequate payment methods—yet that is often precisely where conversion fails. It is therefore crucial that e-tailers offer a range of secure payment methods. To make integration easier for store managers, e-commerce provider Intershop teams up with partners, such as Computop. Payment service provider Computop has now expanded its offering of German and international solutions specifically for Intershop Enfinity Suite 6.4.
The Computop Paygate Cartridge is certified by Intershop and uses the Enfinity Suite payment framework, thus enabling store managers to integrate all payment methods quickly and seamlessly. Shoppers can pay by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, JCB, Diners Club), debit card (Maestro International, Carte Bleue, Dankort), PayPal/PayPal Express, Giropay, Sofortüberweisung, iDeal, mpass, and automatic debit transfer (ELV). Other payment methods can be added at any time.
The offering is rounded out by customizable fraud prevention for the online store. Risk management and fraud prevention comprises 3-D Secure, BIN and IP filters, customizable velocity checks, block lists, and automated bank comparison, meaning that shopper convenience doesn’t come at the price of reduced security for online sellers.
