Selling to consumers outside your home country can be tricky. If your primary business is based, say, in the United States and the prices on your website are displayed only in US Dollars, you could be losing out on international customers who may be interested in your product but aren’t immediately sure how your prices translate to their local currency. Or, perhaps worse, they do buy but charge it back later, after seeing a different price on their credit card statement than they thought they paid at checkout.
By making sure you are giving consumers a localized experience, you can optimize your sales and grow your business as much as possible beyond your own borders. So how do you do it? Segpay merchants can use a three-pronged approach that starts with reporting, and combines language translations and localized currency.
Protecting the payment and customer data that flows through our system is job 1. To that end, we recently implemented two measures that help ensure the security around that data is as strong as it can possibly be.
October 14th starts National Business Women’s Week here in the US, but Segpay CEO Cathy Beardsley will commemorate the occasion overseas – by attending the 2nd annual European Women Payments Network Conference and Awards, October 15-16 in Amsterdam.
Earlier this year we wrote about how Segpay Reporting Services (SRS) can make your life easier, in particular by automating or simplifying common billing and support tasks. One such task is upgrading or downgrading a recurring membership by changing the amount that is regularly rebilled. Previously, SRS only allowed you to decrease a rebill amount. However, now you can increase a recurring charge as well, with prior approval from the Segpay compliance team.
Up to this point, our Get to Know a Segpay Employee series has focused on newer members of the team. However, today we are profiling a true Segpay veteran, our VP of Operations, Jeff Rosenzweig. Many of you probably know Jeff already, but there is always more to the story when it comes to “The Real Rosey” (or were we not supposed to mention that name?) 🙂
Actually, Cathy won. She was named Business Woman of the Year (!) at the 2018 YNOT Awards, announced September 15th in Prague, and we couldn’t be prouder. You may recall that Cathy was nominated back in July. Apparently, lots of people voted for her. 🙂 If you were one of them, thank you! And thanks again to YNOT for nominating Cathy and Segpay. Cathy recorded some words of her own to share her appreciation:
Introducing Single Use Promos, a way to attract more signups with a one-time, or limited-time, discount. Single Use Promos allow you to create a generous sale offer without worrying about repeat purchases.
We recently teamed with AVSecure to help offer age verification solutions to our clients.
Cathy Beardsley, President and CEO of Segpay said, “The partnership with AVSecure is important to us and our clients because this is a very effective age-verification solution for the industry. We will recommend AVSecure to our clients, as we have confidence in their technology and people.”
