BlueSnap: The Smart PayPro Global Alternative to Get Frictionless Payments, Global and Mobile Right

PayPro Global is a traditional global merchant gateway, offering a hosted checkout payment service for merchants; largely those based in the UK. Their traditional processing approach can affect your payment conversion rates and lead to chargebacks. In addition, the technology has not kept with the latest RESTful API standards or with the latest advances in payment types, such as eWallets like Visa Checkout or even PayPal.

Enter BlueSnap.  We have a global payments solution that provides you all the tools you need to create a beautiful, frictionless payment experience while dramatically simplifying (and, often reducing the costs of) your payment operations.  Our solution also expands with you as you expand operations into the US, Europe, Canada, LatAm and beyond.

As your business grows, you need the power of multiple bank connections to ensure you are maximizing payment conversions. BlueSnap’s Intelligent Payment Routing leverages multiple global banks to ensure that every transaction that can be approved is approved. Pay Pro Global is limited to a single acquiring bank.  This traditional approach severely hampers your conversion success and increases the likelihood of payment processing declines.

BlueSnap’s All-in-One Payment Platform was designed to fight checkout abandonment and convert more shoppers to buyers, globally, which is why we also support payment processing locally through multiples banks versus limited processing functionality of Pay Pro Global.

And with alternative payments predicted to account for as much as 50% of eCommerce sales by 2020, BlueSnap accepts a host of payment types ranging from cards to ACH and local bank transfers as well as local eCommerce payment options including global wallets such as Visa Checkout, MasterPass, PayPal, AliPay and Apple Pay. Pay Pro Global is not working to support all these emerging wallets, leaving you unprepared for the future of eCommerce.

User Experience and Integration

BlueSnap has invested heavily in developing a RESTful API that gives developers the control to build the right user experience while retaining the power and functionality of the All-in-One Payment Platform. The result is a world-class set of payment services accessible through an elegant API that allows you to design the best checkout experience for your business – on desktop, mobile and beyond to embedded payment experiences.  With the Platform you get an elegant API to access the power of a global payments platform designed to solve checkout abandonment.


BlueSnap offers recurring payment capabilities plus a full subscription engine for more complex requirements — tools that are lacking from Pay Pro Global.

Security and Compliance

BlueSnap has the most robust implementation of Kount, the leading fraud and risk management solution in the eCommerce space. By leveraging the expertise and capabilities of Kount, the All-in-One Payment Platform gives you the most control over your fraud risk, with options allowing you to:
