Pre-Built Integration between Skrill and Demandware Commerce Platform Enables Rapid, Low-Cost Implementation of Leading Online Payments Technology
London, United Kingdom – 26 May, 2010– Skrill Holdings, which operates Moneybookers, announced today that it has been integrated by Demandware LINK, a best-of-breed technology partner community committed to removing the integration hurdles that retailers face when adopting ecommerce technologies. As a result of this partnership, merchants using the Demandware® Commerce platform can now offer customers the option of securely purchasing products and services through Moneybookers.
Moneybookers Quick Checkout solution allows merchants to directly accept over 100 payment options. This fully PCI-compliant gateway offers full chargeback protection giving merchants the opportunity to achieve global reach and the highest conversion for their business via one simple contract and integration.
In addition, the Moneybookers Digital Wallet enables shoppers to protect their identity by requiring only the relevant details associated with their Moneybookers account to make a purchase. There’s no need to type in credit or debit card details with each transaction, increasing conversion, retention and loyalty rates for online-shops.
“Moneybookers provides consumers with a secure and convenient environment to complete their online transactions,” said Jamus Driscoll, vice president of marketing at Demandware.
“With the availability of a pre-built integration Demandware clients can now implement Skrill and their global payment network in a fraction of the time and cost associated with traditional integrations. We are pleased to have Skrill join us in our quest to make the pain of integration a thing of the past for retailers.”
For online retailers, application integration can be as much as 50 percent of the overall cost and time of an ecommerce implementation. With the pre-built integration between Skrill and the Demandware Commerce platform, the typical length of time required for implementation can be reduced to just 24 hours, which translates into a measurable cost and time savings for retailers.
Ralf Wenzel, COO of Skrill Holdings said, “It’s great for Skrill to be a part of Demandware LINK to be able to offer an excellent, hassle-free service to enterprises worldwide. The integration adds to our worldwide payment network and continues to strengthen our increasingly dominant position in the online payment space.”
