Introduction to card payments

As a Revolut Business customer with an active Merchant account, you have several ways to accept card payments through your e-commerce website. As card payments are one of the most commonly adopted standards in today's digital commerce, it is crucial for merchants to offer a convenient payment option for customers.

For customers, card payments mean quicker and secure checkouts, while for merchants, this translates into faster transaction processing and often increase in sales.

Why offer card payment solutions?

Card payments bring several advantages to merchants, enhancing both operational efficiency and customer engagement. Here are some key benefits:

  • Improved customer experience: Providing a card payment option often results in a quicker and more convenient checkout process for customers. This efficiency can enhance customer satisfaction and contribute to building customer loyalty and repeat business.
  • Increased sales opportunities: Accepting card payments can potentially increase sales as it enables merchants to cater to customers who prefer or require credit facilities or wish to make larger purchases that might not be feasible with limited immediate funds.
  • Enhanced security: Modern card payment systems are equipped with advanced security features like encryption and tokenization, significantly reducing the risk of fraud and data breaches. This security is vital in protecting both merchant and customer data.
  • Global reach: Card payments enable merchants to easily accept payments from customers all over the world, expanding their market reach far beyond local boundaries. This is particularly beneficial for online businesses looking to tap into global markets.
  • Access to financial insights: Card payments generate valuable data that can be analysed for insights into consumer behaviour, sales trends, and business performance. This information can be leveraged to make informed business decisions and strategies.
  • Streamlined transaction processing: Card payments can be smoothly integrated with digital commercial and accounting systems, leading to efficient and accurate transaction management. This integration facilitates easier accounting and financial reporting.
