Payment processing now safer, cheaper and more efficient
With immediate effect, STRATO’s Advanced and Premium Webshops will include Moneybookers’ online payment system as a fully integrated payment interface. Thanks to Moneybookers’ worldwide network, online businesses can offer their customers the best payment and banking options globally including direct credit card processing and over 80 local payment options, as well as the eWallet solution. At the same time, online shops profit from low transaction fees themselves. Online shopping is now even safer due to high security standards comparable to those applied to banks. By adding Moneybookers, STRATO has optimised the portfolio of payment gateways for its shops.
