Online shopping is enjoying great popularity and year after year e-commerce sales are growing. If you also run an online shop or offer services online, or even just think about it, you have to ask yourself which payment options you want to offer your customers. One thing is certain: The more payment methods available, the higher the probability of an online order and the lower the dropout rate.

Credit cards

Payment by credit card is enjoying great and increasing popularity and is therefore one of the most common payment methods in shops. With 3D Secure functions, such as MasterCard SecureCode or Verified by Visa, users can pay securely. The risk of a chargeback or non-payment is extremely low for credit cards with additional security mechanisms.

In addition to credit cards, there are numerous other payment methods that vary in popularity depending on the country. Here you get an overview of the payment systems available on the market for e-commerce.

SEPA direct debit

The SEPA direct debit scheme is also a very popular payment method for transactions on the internet. The customer informs the merchant of his bank details and the merchant can then debit open invoice amounts from the customer’s account. Since the customer has the option to cancel the payment even if the goods have already been delivered, there is also a risk of collection costs or non-payment with this payment system.

bank transfer

Payment methods such as “giropay”, “eps” or “klarna pay now” are based on the fact that the customer must immediately make an online transfer from his bank account during the ordering process in order to complete the transaction. These payments actually cannot be reversed because the customer actively carries out the transfer himself via his online banking system. The risk of non-payment is therefore very low in this case. In any case, you should offer the payment method “bank transfer” in your online shop, in order to offer customers without credit card a comfortable and safe payment possibility.

Alternative payment methods and andwallets

Electronic wallets such as PayPal have also developed into an indispensable online payment system. PayPal offers buyers the greatest possible convenience when paying on the internet. The actual payment details, whether it is the bank account or the credit card, are not provided to the online merchant. Buyers only pay with their e-mail address and enjoy extensive buyer protection. PayPal should not be missing as a secure payment method in your online shop.
