Enable different payment methods on sales channels with HitPay

Offering multiple payment methods is great for your business. With more payment options, customers are less likely to abandon their purchases. Customers also enjoy a better checkout experience, encouraging them to return to your store.

As a HitPay merchant, it’s easy to customise the payment methods on your sales channels like Shopify and WooCommerce. You can offer international and local payment methods like credit cards, bank transfers, e-wallets (like PayNow in Singapore or GCash in the Philippines) — which lets your customers choose their favourite way to pay.

Read on for a step-by-step guide on how to display different payment methods on your sales channels with HitPay.

Why vary payment methods across your sales channels?

Here are 3 reasons why you may want to display different payment methods across your sales channels:

1) Support expansion into another market
Are you expanding your business across multiple markets? Research payment preferences in your new market so you can offer them on your e-commerce platform. For example, credit cards are the preferred method for e-commerce transactions in Singapore, but customers in Malaysia prefer bank transfers.

2) Enable purchases from customers without a credit card or bank account
Access to payment options varies across your customer demographics. For example, not all teenagers may have a bank account and may prefer alternatives. To attract a wider range of customers, enable integrations for PayNow and popular digital wallets like GrabPay.

3) Reduce revenue loss from credit card transaction fees:
If you’re just starting your business, every bit of revenue counts. Avoid high credit card transaction fees by offering alternative payment methods.

In this example, we'll use the example of PayNow, a highly popular e-wallet in Singapore (similar to PayID in Australia or GCash in the Philippines):

You can encourage customers to pay with PayNow through a PayNow cashback campaign, which is 50% cheaper for merchants than standard credit card fees.
