In the ever-changing world of ecommerce, the payment ecosystem has evolved rapidly in response to tech innovation and consumer trends. We are in an era where retailers grapple with an increasingly complex array of payment methods and options. Retailers are forced to maintain a delicate balancing act between customer convenience and operational efficiency.

Enter Payment Gateway Booster – a solution designed to meet payment challenges head-on and help retailers navigate the complexities of the modern payment ecosystem. This article explores how Payment Gateway Booster revolutionizes retail payment processing. 

Payment Complexity on the Rise

With over 230 companies (at the time of writing this blog) producing payment processing technologies, the payments landscape has become a complex maze that most brands struggle to navigate alone. Driven by consumer demand, brands now aim to deliver the right payment methods through the right channels to create the optimal buying experience for their customers. At the same time, brands need to outsource the underlying payment complexity to reduce the strain on internal resources. This objective is becoming increasingly challenging as the ecosystem rapidly changes, and diversifies.

The rise of digital wallets such as PayPal, Apple Pay, and Google Pay have introduced a new layer of complexity. Reports predict these wallets will soon overtake credit cards, accounting for 37% of North American ecommerce spend by 2023. Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) services like Klarna, Afterpay, and Affirm are also gaining traction and expected to triple their current 1% ecommerce market share to 3% in 2023.

Localized payment methods like Alipay in China or iDEAL in the Netherlands are also becoming major players in the global ecommerce landscape. This poses an additional problem for global retailers attempting to build a seamless user experience as their implementation requires an understanding of local regulations across different regions. The task of managing multiple payment providers, each with its unique integration requirements and settlement processes further adds to the confusion for digital retailers.

As payment complexities grow, it has become increasingly evident that legacy commerce platforms, designed for a less complicated retail era, fall short in managing these accelerating changes.

Payment Challenges for Legacy Platforms

Legacy commerce platforms face an uphill battle when it comes to payment complexity. Integrating multiple payment methods can be daunting, costly, and resource-intensive, each requiring individual development, testing, and maintenance efforts.

Working with multiple payment vendors adds another level of sophistication for brands seeking to modernize their payment offerings. Each vendor comes with its own integration requirements, fee structure, and settlement processes. Commerce platforms must also route payments based on various factors such as transaction size, and geographic location. Implementing routing logic and ensuring seamless payment processing across multiple scenarios isn’t possible with out-of-the-box legacy platforms.

Security is also an ongoing concern with legacy platform users. Ensuring robust online payment security in the face of data breaches, phishing attacks and other new and emerging threats poses a perennial challenge that legacy platforms struggle to adequately respond to.
