How you can sell more with an optimal payment processor
After the atypical Christmas campaign that businesses experienced in 2020 (due to the pandemic), 2021 is set to be a year of increased sales. It is estimated that sales will grow by 8.2% during the Christmas campaign in one of the leading markets, the USA. The situation in Spain is similar: after the drop in sales in 2020 (estimated at 6% year-on-year), Spanish retailers are also predicting an improved campaign this December 2021, which will reflect the new consumer behaviours acquired during the pandemic.
According to the National Retail Federation, small and large businesses around the world register around 20% of sales for the whole year in the 30 days that the Christmas commercial campaign is estimated to last.

Offer more payment options to your customers
Your customers expect fast, secure and convenient payment technology from your business. But not only that: they expect you to offer them their usual payment method by default, either one of the usual payment methods, or an alternative one. And what do they do if they can’t find it? Most likely, they will end up abandoning the shopping cart in your store, and look for one of your competitors that does offer a payment gateway with all these features. So how do you offer a payment gateway that includes all of this?
- The best payment gateway has alternative payment methods: we want you to offer your customers much more than traditional payment methods. Alternative methods such as WeChat Pay, Ali Pay, MIR, and a myriad of payment methods from the US, Asia and Europe, opening the doors of your business to more customers around the world.
- Multi-channel payments, more and better ways to pay: we want you to go one step further. Another way to increase your conversion is by offering new payment channels, in addition to the classic digital payment gateway. Pay-by-link, IVR, soft MPOS, or our well-known POS, which you can use for both physical sales and e-commerce. Make the most of all the sales channels in your business and integrate unified commerce thanks to a single, multichannel payment platform with alternative payment methods.
The best security for the best payment gateway
Now that we have talked about offering more payment channels and methods, it's time to talk about offering secure payments. A secure payment gateway with optimised security through tokenisation provides your business with one of the most decisive added values for converting leads into sales: peace of mind. In other words: it is what you need to make your customers feel that their data is safe with you, and that you know how to protect them from fraud.
The best management control: analyse your business’s main KPIs
Another way to get the most out of the upcoming Christmas campaign that is just around the corner is by analysing your KPIs. Keep your business performance under control by analysing the main performance parameters, as if you were a true financial expert. How to do it?
- Business Intelligence Dashboard: a customised dashboard where you can consult, on demand, the main performance indicators of your business. How? Thanks to our innovative Data Management technology, we analyse the financial data of your business in order to create graphs to offer you in an intuitive control panel. Business intelligence technology helps you to monitor your business activity peaks by days, hours and geolocation. Make corrections on the spot, and optimise your business conversion, knowing that you have an expert financial partner by your side.
