LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Allied Wallet, a leading provider of online payment processing offering various payment solutions in 196 countries all over the world, is now compatible with several preferred, alternative payment options in Ireland to service more users in their growing e-commerce market.
A large percentage of Ireland’s population is already online; of Ireland’s 4.7 million population, 82% are internet users. 2.89 million of these users are frequent online shoppers and spend an average of €3,143 per year online.
With a growth rate of about 15%, Ireland is projected to have about 3.35 million e-commerce users by 2022.
As a global Fintech company specializing in international e-commerce, Allied Wallet finds itself at the center of this growth and is driving it forward.
Ireland imports large amounts of goods with about €20 billion in imports from the United Kingdom, €8.4 billion from the United States, €5.7 billion from Germany, €3.25 billion from the Netherlands, and €2.8 billion from France.
Allied Wallet is a preferred payment service provider in all of these countries, and has recently added Paysafecard, Boleto Bancário, SEPA Credit Transfer, and SEPA Direct Debit to its NextGen Payment Gateway to better serve the needs and preferences of Ireland.
“Ireland’s e-commerce market is growing without a doubt, and people are using online shopping as a means to get new, imported items,“ says CEO Andy Khawaja.
“People love fashion. It’s Ireland’s leading product category, accounting for nearly a billion dollars of the market share. We want to provide people the best way to pay for their items, and we want to protect business owners and customers alike as e-commerce continues to grow,” he added.
Payment options like SEPA Direct Debit are very common in the region and preferred as a means to transact. SEPA Direct Debit alone has users in 34 countries with over 500,000,000 open accounts.
As the e-commerce space evolves and becomes more accepted across the world, it’s important that online businesses cater to the preferences of their audiences to increase sales.
Allied Wallet is leading the industry in alternative payment options in order to simplify business across borders for the entrepreneurs of today and tomorrow.
