Today we’re happy to announce an exciting new service to make payments as easy as possible. From today on PAYMILL offers more card brands such as JCB, Diners Club/Discover, China Union Pay and American Express. We tried to remain as simple as possible, but for some brand/country combinations we had to adjust the pricing and the standard fee of 2,95% increases slightly, e.g. for American Express (3,95%), which is in general a very expensive card brand.
Merchants who run a global online business improve conversion rates offering local preferred card brands to their customers. Even though some brands are not so relevant in Europe, they have a significant market share in US or Asia. That is why PAYMILL added the brands to its portfolio.
How can you set up your account with new brands?
For new merchants, just select the preferred brands during the online application form (“activation”). For existing merchants, simply login and choose “settings” in order to add brands to your merchant account. The set-up will take a couple of days. On our pricing page you can see fees and availability of the different cards brands for each country.
