Payment systems

Consumers have come to expect a simple easy way of paying for products online, so integrations with payment gateways are the critical point for the customer journey. We have extensive experience using payment gateways, know where the pitfalls are, and how to best convert the customer. We have integrated many of the payment gateways for clients using Drupal, Joomla, osCommerce, Magento and WordPress.

One key option factor missing from many eCommerce stores are multiple payment options, a 2009 survey of 2000 British adults found 50% said if their preferred payment method is not available, they will cancel the purchase ( Simply adding another payment option could capture these lost sales.

Payment providers we’ve integrated with include:

  • PayPal
