WALTHAM, MA – June 26, 2017 BlueSnap, an online payments technology company, today announces the availability of SEPA Direct Debit to give merchants even more ways to reach shoppers in Europe. SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) Direct Debit is a popular European payment method that makes cross-border shopping easy. SEPA Direct Debit payments allow customers to make cashless payments in euros across country borders for online checkout, invoice payments and marketplaces.
BlueSnap’s platform is designed for frictionless payment experiences and merchants that implement SEPA Direct Debit can expect to see higher conversions. Using the platform, BlueSnap merchants will be able to offer shoppers in 21 countries the option of paying with SEPA Direct Debit. SEPA is preferred by 45% of shoppers in Europe and is most heavily used by shoppers in Germany, France, Spain, the Netherlands, and Italy. With 500 million potential users (2x the number of European credit cards currently in use), the addition of SEPA Direct Debit payments to payment options will increase sales and boost conversion rates.
