SegPay is attending two major industry events in January, and we hope to see you there:
As 2017 comes to a close, we wanted to say thanks to all of our merchants and friends for making this a successful year here at SegPay, and we wish you a happy and healthy 2018!
We’re looking forward to another great year together, highlighted by more payment and payout options to make it even easier to transact your business and get paid, while leaving the dirty work of processing payments and fighting fraud to us. Listed below are just a few things you can expect to see in the coming months. Hopefully these items were on your holiday wish list for your business. What else would you like to see on the list?
Sometime in early ’18, we’ll be introducing Fast Checkout – which may or may not be the actual name, but you get the idea: checking out with SegPay is fast already, but soon it’ll be faster. How? Consumers will have the option to save their last credit card used – by creating a login on the SegPay payment page – speeding up future purchases, since they won’t have to re-enter credit card info when logged in.
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.
We are really proud to announce that two of our teammates have been nominated for a 2018 XBiz Exec award – Cathy Beardsley for Chief Executive of the Year, and Kristi Greer for Account Executive of the Year. Industry peers chose the nominees and will vote online via the business social network XBiz.net from now until the winners are announced at the XBiz 2018 show, January 15-19 in Las Angeles. We ask all members to please vote for Cathy and Kristi! 🙂
