PrestaShop Releases SOFORT Payment Integration
Open source shopping cart PrestaShop has partnered with SOFORT, the European leader in direct online bank transfer payments, to provide a pre-installed integration with their payment system within the PrestaShop platform.
The built-in integration will make it easy for businesses that use PrestaShop to activate the SOFORT direct online bank transfer payment system.
"At PrestaShop, we are always looking for innovative solutions that will help our customers find a path to success for their business," says Bertrand Amaraggi, PrestaShop's Country Manager, Spain. "Considering how easy it is to use as well as SOFORT's growth not only throughout Europe but also in Spain, we thought it was the right time to offer a quick and easy implementation of their payment solution for our customers' online businesses."
With the SOFORT solution, businesses can offer customers the option to pay by bank transfer in three steps, without having to sign up with SOFORT. Businesses will receive an instant transfer notification with payment details, allowing them to process orders right away. The transfer is made directly from the customer's bank account to the business's bank account, without intermediary accounts, and at the original sales amount.
SOFORT is a part of the Klarna Group, one of the leading European online payment providers. Direct online bank transfer payments are a popular ecommerce payment option in a number of European countries. More than 35,000 online businesses use SOFORT in Europe, and the payment service is available to more than 180 million consumers in 13 European countries – Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Hungary, Italy, Spain, France, the UK, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
