Benefits of Using Peach Payments
Peach Payments’ products and services are divided into three main sections:
- eCommerce plugins (WooCommerce, Shopify, Wix, OpenCart, Magento, nopCommerce)
- Payment products
The company’s plugins go hand in hand with most globally-known eCommerce platforms. WooCommerce support includes multiple robust features that increase sales. For example, there are customer refunds, one-click payments, and retry payment options.
Merchants can also create a payment schedule that lets them charge customers whenever their subscription is due. Plugins support all major credit and debit cards, Instant EFT, Mobicred, Masterpass, 1Voucher, and Apple Pay, together with subscription payments and foreign cards. Finally, plugins are built for mobile commerce, with optimized UI and industry-leading conversion rates.
When it comes to safety, Peach Payments’ plugins utilize a PCI DSS Level 1 compliant processor with enterprise-grade security. Bank-enabled two-factor authentication together with a robust set of tools meets all risk management needs and users can monitor transaction data in real-time, which reduces fraud.
Peach Payments also focuses on the best possible customer service for its users. Peach Payments provides personalized solutions by phone (including WhatsApp), email, seven days a week. Its account managers are there to help optimize the payment experience and offer more value for businesses. There’s also a team of engineers to help out and a documentation hub to streamline the integration process.
Peach Payments’ online payment gateway offers a smooth, optimized checkout that supports multiple payment methods from global users. It’s also mobile-optimized (Android and iOS), without the need for a website.
Peach Payments also offers tools for subscription and recurring payments, which increase the number of loyal customers and predictable revenue.
Then, there are payout tools that help businesses streamline payments to staff, customers, and partners. These come with an easy-to-use web portal and transparent and cost-effective pricing with a flat fee per payout.
Besides the security measures with plugins, Peach Payments also brings advanced fraud detection tools. These screen transactions in real-time, and have a blacklist option for repeat fraudsters.
