For many years, SegPay has paired US merchants who do business in Europe with local acquirers that provide payouts in US Dollars. However, for various reasons the ability to find sufficient merchant settlement options for USD payouts has been getting more challenging. We expect this trend to continue, so we wanted you to be aware and let you know how we’re preparing.
Earlier this year SegPay upgraded to the latest encryption technology (known as TLS 1.2) for protecting sensitive data transmitted between SegPay and our banks and other financial partners. This means that when you make a payment through SegPay, your data is protected with state-of-the-art technologies that conform to PCI’s latest standards for data security.
When you think about growing your business beyond the borders of your home country, it probably feels like a daunting task: you have to consider language translations, currency conversions, cultural sensitivities, not to mention navigating a potential maze of local laws and regulations. However, depending on where you are located and how customizable your website is, taking the first step may not be as difficult as it seems.
None of us likes to think about disaster scenarios or imagine that they will affect us or our business. However, we all know that storms and other catastrophic events – natural or otherwise – are a fact of life, and it makes sense to be prepared, just in case.
A list of your websites, price points, and all the data associated with them is always available for you in the SegPay Merchant Portal. But what if you want to grab that data and save or share it in different formats? We’re glad you asked! As of today, you can download all of your website and price point info in an Excel file, or a CSV or PDF. Go to My Websites in the Merchant Portal, and when viewing your list of sites or price points, look for the Download link above the table.

Credit Card Processing Today: Decline or Dominance? looks at the current, and future, payment landscape amid the growing number of payment options available:
The last time we “got to know a SegPay employee” we met Jessica from our QA team. It was so much fun we thought we’d profile another one of SegPay’s QA Engineers, Zhanna Garcia. Zhanna joined SegPay in early 2017 and has made an immediate impact. We thought you’d enjoy her story.
Cancelled subscriptions are a fact of life. We’d love it if we could prevent every one of our members from cancelling. However, while that may not be realistic, we’ll soon be introducing a way to salvage some cancellations that may have been unintentional.
