How do you find the right Payment Service Provider for your web shop?

Six tips to help online retailers choose the right provider

One partner, one contract - for many companies this is the crucial reason for using a Payment Service Provider (PSP). Instead of bringing on board multiple service providers, most retailers and manufacturers trust one Payment Service Provider for the processing of payments.

The reason why companies are choosing to do this sounds logical: because customers today expect to be able to pay by direct debit, credit card, PayPal and on account, retailers have no other choice but to offer the corresponding range of payment methods at the checkout. And because a PSP assures the link to all payment methods, it is quite simply the most convenient solution.
