2000Charge, Inc. is a global financial services organization established in 1999 to provide e-commerce merchants an end-to-end solution for credit card alternatives. As the pioneer in Alternative Payments, the company operates worldwide and has global reach in the European Union, Canada, Latin America, Asia Pacific and the United States. Many of our products were among the first to be introduced to the online payment market.
Our company provides a global payment infrastructure to assist in maximizing conversions of international traffic and revenue streams with a broad portfolio of payment solutions local to consumers.
We focus on high-growth, payment-related and internet-related services and consolidate the entire portfolio of solutions to streamline the checkout process for international consumers.
An Alternative payment is a payment method other than the usage of the traditional credit card. Alternative payments are just as popular as credit card payments. However, not everyone has a credit card or likes to use them online. Especially outside the United States, credit card coverage is as low as 10% and is certainly not a widespread payment method.
Consumers outside the United States like to pay with their well-established local payment methods or with those methods that they are accustomed to. 2000Charge offers merchants a variety of payment methods that will limit the exposure and risks involved in providing services online to consumers worldwide.
Absolutely, adding our services will increase your sales because you can offer consumers more options to pay. Adding our alternative payment solutions is easy and the consumer will see the optional payment buttons on your payment page.
Whether you have a subscription website or sell goods and services, we provide a variety of methods that makes adding our services a simple process. We have incorporated our billing solutions into thousands of websites and our experienced tech staff can get you setup quickly.
Actual increase varies largely on how well you target your alternative markets. It is not uncommon for us to see our clients experience a 30% or more increase in their sales after adding our alternative payment services!
