As a beauty e-commerce retailer, you can gain a competitive advantage by offering a variety of payment options to serve the local markets from which your customers are coming from. Visa and Mastercard remain the most popular methods for online purchases, but alternative methods are gaining ground as well. By choosing to partner with Powercash21, you’ll be well placed to capture a larger portion of the market share with the adoption of local payment methods.

Below is a short sample list from the several alternative payments solutions you can choose from through Powercash21:

1. iDeal – one of the most popular bank transfer methods in the Netherlands. If you already serve or wish to enter the Dutch market, iDeal should definitely be part of your strategy. When a customer lands on your payment page, all they have to do is select iDeal as their preferred method of payment and they will be redirected to their bank to authorize the transaction through their internet banking. A real time payment is then executed from your customer’s bank account directly to yours. After the transaction is made, the customer automatically returns to the ecommerce merchant’s website.

2. Boleto Bancario – or simply Boleto, is a cash-based method used by Brazilian shoppers who do not own a bank account. A consumer, who chooses Boleto as a method of payment, will be redirected to generate a Boleto voucher which has to be paid at the closest Boleto location.

3. Bancontact – a must-have card payment solution for beauty ecommerce websites with traffic from the Belgian market. The consumer enters the information of their card (linked to their Belgian bank account), and once the transaction is completed, payment is guaranteed and cannot be reversed. Bancontact transactions are further protected by 3DS.

4. Sofort – a widely-used payment method in Germany, with more than a 1,500 integrated German banks. Sofort is a real-time bank transfer method that online shoppers can use by choosing this method at the checkout page of an online beauty shop and entering their bank information to login. Once they review the pre-filled details they then authorize the payment.

5. EPS – or Electronic Payment Standard is an online bank transfer method used by millions of shoppers with an Austrian bank account. The way it works is really simple, with the shopper choosing EPS as their desired method and inserting their bank details when they are redirected to the bank’s page. When the transaction is completed, the customer is redirected back to the online store’s website.
