It’s never been as easy to set up an online shop as it is today. Countless providers of e-commerce shop systems are fighting for space on the market. Consequently, there are more shops out there, and this growing number of shops is leading to increasing consumer demands. Everything needs to work. In addition to simple order processes and an attractive range of secure payment methods, customers also expect fast delivery and straightforward returns.
To successfully sell products online, it is usually necessary to cooperate with multiple service partners. However, this can be both expensive and time-consuming. This is why solutions that offer everything from a single source and a single reliable partner –capable of doing everything– are highly sought after.
As one of the leading international payment service providers, Wirecard has been developing all-inclusive solutions for e-commerce merchants for almost 20 years, focusing in particular on the needs of startups.
Shop system, payment solution and dispatch tool all in one
Since 2014, the Wirecard Checkout Portal has offered a fully automated, scalable payment processing solution, which enables startups to connect their shops to the world of international e-commerce quickly and without any red tape. Additional services, such as risk management solutions, banking services and, recently, the SendCloud dispatch tool, are available on request, enabling merchants to optimise their dispatch processes.
The free shop system SUPR by Wirecard enables startups to first set up their online shops based on their own specific needs, then offer all relevant payment methods via the integrated Checkout Portal and benefit from additional services, such as SendCloud, in order to optimally process the dispatch of goods. By bringing these services together, Wirecard offers a cost-efficient, perfectly tailored and 100% professional all-in-one shop solution.
‘With the Checkout Portal, we provide our customers with a highly efficient method for processing online payments that adapts to every need. The high demand demonstrates that online merchants need a scalable, international solution for their shops,’ explains Christian Reindl, Executive Vice President of Sales Consumer Goods at Wirecard.
What exactly do SUPR, the Checkout Portal and SendCloud offer?
With SUPR by Wirecard, startups can set up their own online shops quickly and free of charge, or integrate their products directly into an existing website or blog or onto platforms such as Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest. The wide range of customisable designs enables products to be professionally presented without any technical expertise.
The Wirecard Checkout Portal is already integrated in SUPR and enables secure payment processing including fraud protection. The desired payment methods, such as credit card, SOFORT Überweisung or PayPal, are enabled directly in the shop management system following registration. There are no set-up costs or monthly charges associated with use of the Checkout Portal.
The SendCloud dispatch tool is a premium service which is available free of charge to all Checkout Portal customers. SendCloud enables merchants to commission multiple dispatch services simultaneously, draw up customized shipping labels and tracking emails, and use a customized returns portal. The professional dispatch process contributes to increased customer satisfaction and thus to higher conversion rates.
