BlueSnap

BlueSnap is one of the most comprehensive payment platforms in the market today, powering the checkout process for ecommerce merchants of all sizes worldwide, and fueling growth for online businesses serving digital, physical and mobile markets. As both a global payment service provider and an international payment gateway, BlueSnap has reinvented the checkout experience by combining the power of four key components: seamless integration into the storefront, global payment processing, award winning smart subscription technology, and dynamic marketing tools for up-sell at checkout, all combined in one easy-to-use platform.

BlueSnap is dedicated to elevating the customer experience, and has made it incredibly easy for companies to monetize quickly on a global scale, by connecting merchants to a worldwide network of payment processors and helping to convert more shoppers into paying customers. Additionally, the unique ability to dynamically deliver translated checkout pages with local payment types, multiple currency options and one-click purchasing, provides an easy and frictionless user experience, alleviating the shopper abandonment issues seen with other providers while maintaining the integrity of the overall customer experience.

Serving over 5000 merchants, and supporting shoppers in 180 countries by localizing the experience, with 28 languages, 60+ currencies, and 110 payment types, BlueSnap is powering buys for merchants around the globe, and fulfilling their promise to convert more shoppers to buyers worldwide.

BlueSnap was recently awarded PYMNTs.com Innovation Award for its Smart Subscription technology. Responding to the evolving needs of customers to push past the barriers of card only subscriptions, BlueSnap created an exclusive technology that allows companies to fully realize their recurring revenue potential by supporting a variety of payment methods, including local payment types and wire transfers. The award is another recognition that BlueSnap continually innovates to better serve the needs of today’s companies.

BlueSnap is led by veterans of the financial payments services industry and is backed by solid financial investment resources. We know digital commerce, and we are committed to your success. Contact us today and put our expertise to work for you.
