Internet payment solutions provider Worldpay has launched its range of electronic payment products on a worldwide basis allowing companies to exploit the global nature of the Web.
The company which provides secure payment facilities on Web sites such as Oxfam, Guinness, JD Sports, Littlewoods Pools and the Princess of Wales Memorial fund, has installed a multi-lingual call centre at its European operations centre in Cambridge. Here traders, or merchants, from around the world can talk to multi-lingual agents in 12 different languages including Russian and Mandarin.
Worldpay offers single and multi-currency payment products, as well as a micro-payments package allowing merchants to accept low-value payments from customers in up to 16 key currencies.
The multi-currency solution allows a merchant to accept credit card payments from shoppers in over 140 different currencies encouraging customers to place orders from anywhere in the world. Consumers always know exactly how much they will be charged as they see the price in their own currency while the merchant receives the payment in its own currency.
The company also has a package, Businesspay, for high-value business to business transactions. It enables the merchant to offer a virtual accounting system to shoppers through a credit facility.
Ecommerce has been slow to take-off in the Europe compared to the US, with security fears and the number of different currencies combining to inhibit its growth.
