A PSP provides you the 'virtual Point-of-Sale device' that allows your customers to pay for the goods and services they purchase on your (mobile) website or app.

Looking to accept payments for your online business proces?
Nowadays more and more profit and non-profit businesses and organisations switch to online business processes to serve the changing and demanding needs of their B2C or B2B customers. Besides customer demand, there is also a drive for efficiency and scalability of services.
More often these online business processes do include a final step where the customer should be able to pay online for an order, registration, reservation or for their bills or invoices. And that's where complexity starts: which Payment Service Provider should you choose for this business critical process?
Which online payment provider is able to offer the right set of payment methods and solutions for maximum conversion and a seamless payment experience for your customers? Which one provides good quality reporting for both your customer services team and your finance department? Which providers can easily integrate with your ERP package or CRM software?

Maybe your customers have mentioned to prefer alternative payment methods - such as crypto and pay-later methods? Maybe you are pro-actively looking to get the right payment options in your checkout to improve your conversion rate?
Or you might be looking to target new countries which require other forms of online payment - and importantly - processing in other currencies?

Looking to accept payments online through specific types of integration (shopping carts, ERP software, coding languages)?
We distinguish three (3) different type of integration options to embed payment acceptance in your webshop, checkout or app:
1. through a shopping cart solution
2. through a ERP or corporate business planning software
3. through specific programming code (for developers)
1. Shopping Cart Software
Many webshops use the shopping cart software from e-commerce platforms such as Magento, Prestashop, Bigcommerce, Shopify, WooCommerce or WIX to run their e-commerce business. These platforms make it easy to built and maintain an e-commerce shop at relatively low cost. They also make it easy to accept payments by offering a limited number of Payment Service Provider (PSP) plugins. By using these 'integration-plugs', it is no longer necessary for the webshop to develop and maintain code to connect to a payment processing platform. From an integration perspective this makes life easier, however, as an online business owner you should still choose a PSP or payment gateway. That's why it makes sense to use our free provider matching service. We help you to find out which payment service provider or payment gateway is a good option given your shopping cart solution and specific payment needs.
2. ERP or corporate business planning software
Larger merchants and corporate businesses often use Enterprise software applications like Netsuite, Sage, Salesforce, SAP Commerce Cloud (Hybris) and Microsoft Dynamics. Once the decision is made to integrate payment acceptance, it is of great importance to understand which Payment Service Providers are qualified. So, first of all, which PSPs have an existing technical integration with your ERP platform or business software? Which provider has the right payment mix for your target markets and type of customers? Who has the right reporting for customer care, financial and accounting purposes? Which Payment Service Provider has the best pricing or value for money? Our free PSP matching service - free of charge - helps to get your selection of Payment Service Providers and start your talks with a direct point of contact. Be wise, save time, and put our payment experts to work. Start here »
3. Specific programming code
As a web or app developer you are most probably most interested in Payment Service Providers talking your language, or code. For you it is important to know which Payment Service Providers and payment gateways could be integrated by using API's and programming language as Java, Python, j-son or ruby-on-rails. Feel free to use our free-of-charge matching service to find the ones fit for you and your client's ambitions in terms of payment method offering, market span, pricing and services, and equally or even more important, support your coding.
