As part of this cooperation, thousands of Plimus sellers can offer end customers the option of securely purchasing digital products and services through Moneybookers.
Moneybookers is one of the most popular forms of international electronic payment. The safest, quickest, and most convenient way to pay and store your money online, it allows users to effortlessly shop without needing to type in credit or debit card details during each transaction. With over 14 million customers in over 200 countries and territories worldwide, plus support for over 100 local payment types, the addition of the Moneybookers service makes it easier than ever for Plimus sellers to profit from global sales.
“Our association with Moneybookers will increase the ability of Plimus vendors and affiliates to close sales in many leading developing countries - such as India and China - where credit cards, electronic checks and PayPal are not commonly used for online transactions. Moneybookers has an immensely strong international footprint and is widely regarded as a premier online payment service,” says Hagai Tal, CEO of Plimus.
Martin Ott, co-CEO of Moneybookers said, “We are pleased to welcome Plimus to our partner portfolio. We believe that our hassle-free solution will provide great value to Plimus vendors. With only one simple integration, our service allows any online-merchant to immediately internationalize their stores and attract international customers. Our eWallet is also appealing to shoppers because it is easy to use, keeps data secure and is reliable. In addition, our fraud risk prevention on every payment and charge-back protection gives merchants an added layer of security.”
The global popularity and deep reach of Moneybookers gives Plimus sellers the option of offering the service as a secure payment method directly from their order pages, without any additional setup requirements or fees. Transaction details appear in the shopper’s Moneybookers account and are reported in real time to the respective seller through the Plimus e-Commerce application.
