Credit Cards

Credit cards are the most commonly adopted payment solution worldwide and virtually a must for online merchants in their payment mix. With its long history, and being one of the first payment methods used on the Internet, card payment solutions offer a high level of customer acceptance and are trusted by merchants around the world.

Visa is the world’s largest card network in terms of transaction value and the dominant payment method worldwide (except for some countries, such as China). Merchants who accept Visa can protect online payments by using Verified by Visa, a service that verifies the real cardholder at the time of purchase.

MasterCard is one of the world’s best-known card payment solutions and a dominant credit card brand. Merchants willing to accept MasterCard online payments can protect their card sales by using MasterCard SecureCode, a service that verifies the genuine cardholder at the moment of purchase.

Diners Club is the first credit card in the world to have become a global player with more than 29 million points of acceptance worldwide. Unlike MasterCard and Visa, Diners Club is a closed and exclusive card payment solution, which means that the acceptance and issuing of the cards is the same unit.

 

Alternative Payment Methods

In addition to global processing of credit cards, we support all major alternative payment methods and help you choose the most popular payment solutions for your target markets. We make sure your customers can pay conveniently, quickly and reliably.

 

Online Bank Transfers

With an online bank transfer, the participating financial institutions authenticate and validate the availability of customer funds in real time. A successful online banking payment is irreversible, so there is no chargeback risk.

giropay is a multi-bank online banking ePayments scheme specifically for Germany and Austria and allows payment for all online banking customers of participating banks. Benefit from high customer acceptance and immediate and guaranteed payment confirmation.

The Electronic Payment Standard, or eps for short, is an online bank transfer payment method developed by Austrian banks, the Austrian Ministry of Finance (BMF) and the CIO (Chief Information Office) of the Austrian government. The scheme cooperates with giropay to increase the customer’s reach to Germany as well. With eps, merchants benefit from a popular online payment method in Austria.

iDEAL is by far the most popular method for online payments in the Netherlands, well beyond the use of credit cards. iDEAL is a multi-bank online banking ePayments scheme, launched in 2005 that allows customers to buy from their bank accounts online through direct online transfers. iDEAL is an accumulation of technical agreements between banks and transaction processors and serves the vast majority of the Dutch online banking market.

Bancontact is the most famous Belgian payment method and allows direct payments through the online payment systems of all major Belgian banks. Providing Bancontact in the merchant’s webshop is the ideal way to reach the Belgian market. Almost 75% of Belgian residents have a Bancontact card and use it for online shopping, resulting in an 80% share of Bancontact transactions of all card payments in Belgium.

Sofort can be classified as an overlay online banking ePayments system and was introduced in 2005. In addition to Germany, it is available in many European countries, which means a much broader coverage in one payment method compared to national multi-bank online banking ePayments solutions. It is famous for both, by the merchants, as it comes with instant and guaranteed payment confirmation and by the consumers who can use any of their bank accounts from the supported countries.

Przelewy24, also known as P24, is a popular payment method in Poland that allows end users to make payments from their online bank account to merchants. P24 is a well-known brand in Poland and is supported by most Polish banks, giving merchants access to the maximum number of buyers. DIMOCO Payment Services recommends Przelewy24 as the first choice for any online retailer in Poland. Real-time notification of payments allows for immediate delivery of goods and services.

PayPal facilitates payments between parties through online transfers based on the principle of an electronic wallet. Both merchants and customers benefit from an established and international online payment method. Once a user creates an account and connects to a credit card, checking account, or another alternative payment method, PayPal makes online purchases more convenient by providing a payment method in which neither the payer nor the payee gives a credit card or bank account details.

paysafecard is an electronic payment method based on the prepaid principle. The company is the most significant player in the European market in this area. Available in 46 countries, consumers purchase a 16-digit PIN code at pre-sale points such as gas stations, post offices or tobacconists, and then use the associated credit for online payments. International acceptance and ease of use for consumers make this payment solution interesting for almost all online industries.
