London, UK and Jena, Germany, 26 February 2013 – Intershop and Computop, a leading payment service provider (PSP), today announced the partnership which integrates Computop Paygate, a multichannel payment platform with Intershop 7, the latest version of Intershop’s e-commerce platform. Over 20 customers are already benefiting from the partnership between Intershop and Computop.
Computop Paygate’s platform provides online retailers with secure payment solutions and efficient fraud prevention for international markets. Intershop customers will have access to Computop’s wide range of international and domestic payment methods to support consumers’ preferences. This includes Amazon Payments for the US and Europe; FasterPay in the UK, POLi for Australia and New Zealand, Przelewy24 for Poland, Teleingreso for Spain, Postfinance bank transfer and card payments in Switzerland and Qiwi, Ukash and Skrill/Moneybookers for international payments.
“A multi-channel commerce solution is necessary for any retailer to succeed in today’s market,” said Jochen Moll, Member and Spokesman of the Board of Management. “But when deploying a solution for international cross channel functionality, it’s important to have a payment solution that can support retailers through an extensive portfolio of international payment methods coupled with secure payments and efficient fraud prevention. This partnership further supports our mission to be the e-commerce platform of choice by offering an easily integrated payment and fraud solution to Intershop 7.”
Matt Ball, Head of Sales UK & Ireland, Intershop said, “Consumers will quickly abandon their shopping carts if the most relevant payment method is unvailable. Retailers that want to effectively internationalise their businesses must ensure they have the right payment options available to each country served otherwise abandoned shopping baskets could hurt the bottomline. Working with Computop, Intershop clients can meet the expectations of their customers through privision of a wide and ever growing range of international and domestic payment methods. ”
Ralf Gladis, CEO at Computop said, ”At Computop we have seen a sharp increase in local retailers wanting to take advantage of international growth opportunities abroad. Last year we focused heavily on expanding the Paygate platform to help make international expansion as simple and safe as possible for merchants. By combining this capabilitiy with Intershop’s ecommerce platform, we are able to offer customers an unprecedented opportunity for growth.“
