Operators of online marketplaces are only successful if they can gain and secure the long-term trust of providers and end customers. An order and payment process that leaves nothing to be desired in terms of security, convenience and efficiency is a crucial factor in this respect.
Success with the right payment solution
An all-round enjoyable purchase and sales experience is crucial to the long-term success of an online marketplace: only platforms that can offer providers and consumers clear added value and that can quickly establish trust will be successful. Choosing the right payment solution is essential: order and payment processes must be user-friendly, reliable and absolutely secure. This is the only way to ensure that consumers’ purchasing experience is as equally positive as the selling experience of merchants and providers.
