Payment Methods Used in Our Store
Online payments increase exponentially each year and are expected to reach 2 trillion not later than in 2016, according to eMarketer.
It’s a huge amount of money transferred via the internet by millions of people worldwide and a tidbit for scammers. So, in order to feel safe about their transactions customers require an outstanding security from merchants, which is totally reasonable.
For our part, being a completely online-based business, aheadWorks also pays much attention to the transactions security and payment convenience.
We offer our shoppers multiple still totally safe payment methods in our store, so you can be confident about your transactions and payment credentials. This post reveals all possible ways you can use to pay our products.
The scope of provided payments methods covers almost all countries and multiple currencies, so you can purchase our extensions and themes from anywhere and on any device using your most convenient and trusted payment methods.
Direct Card Processing
Direct Card Payment
This a standard option used by the overwhelming majority of online merchants, which transfers money to our bank directly. Actually, when you enter your credit card credentials, you just use the interface of the payment processor provided by our servicing bank.
This payment method is absolutely secured and suitable for most customers as it processes Visa and MasterCard. The main advantage of this method is that customers are not redirected to any third-party pages and make their purchases without leaving our store. The sensitive payment data goes instantly to our bank and is not collected by any transaction parties.
Braintree is another payment method provided at our checkout, which is a payment service given by an American company. On September 26, 2013 Braintree was acquired by eBay for US $800 million.
Generally, this service offers a wide range of payment options, including Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, Bitcoins, Apple Pay, etc. Currently our company uses two payment options provided by Braintree – MasterCard and Visa – while e.g. PayPal and Coinbase are available at first-hand.
Braintree allows customers to purchase from multiple mobile devices using Venmo Touch. This product enables customers to checkout in just one click without re-entering the credentials for each purchase.
Using Braintree customers also stay at our checkout without any redirects.
PayPal is an international digital wallet, which allows you to make purchases online with just an email address and password. Customers are able to shop online on multiple websites, eBay, or transfer money between PayPal accounts instantly.
The service accepts 26 currencies from 203 countries, which clearly displays the geography and power of this payment method.
Note: 72% of US online shoppers have a PayPal account. Source: PayPal.
Just like other similar payment methods, PayPal provides its services both for merchants and customers, and the last ones have an opportunity to take advantage of its loyalty program.
Skrill is one more digital wallet you can use for purchasing in our store. It is also widely spread in multiple countries and has multiple benefits for customers and merchants. Using Skrill people are able to easily transfer money to 200 available countries and need only an email address of the recipient to fulfill the transaction.
Skrill is widely distributed in Europe and offers several additional payment options connected to the system. European and international clients of Skrill are able to use ELV, eNETS, ePay Bulgaria, EPS/Netpay, Giropay, iDEAL, Payolution, paysafecard, Paytrail, POLi, Przelewy24, Skrill Direct, SOFORT, Yandex, and other payment options for their purchases.
Bitcoin is an online payment system without central repository, which uses a virtual currency – bitcoins. As the system has no any intermediary chains (banks or administrators) Bitcoin is able to provide truly fast international payments with zero or low fees. However, bitcoins are not recommended to use for savings due to its volatility.
Bitcoin uses an advanced cryptography for security and control over the transactions and this way provides full protection of payments within the system.
Coinbase is the most popular bitcoin wallet, which allows customers to buy bitcoins, safely store them, and spend them on purchases they want. It unites 24 countries, 2.5 million wallets, 38 thousand merchants, and 7 thousand apps.
Coinbase actually connects customers and merchants, who want to use bitcoins in their transactions. It also comprises a bitcoin exchange.
We support this diversity of payment methods for your top convenience and in order to provide you with an unmatched freedom of choice. Altogether, these payment methods cover almost all countries and main global currencies, including digital ones.
You can pay for our products using credit, debit, or prepaid cards (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, etc.), your current or credit bank accounts, multiple alternative or local payment methods, etc. on any device.
