Paris, le 08 décembre 2011 – PriceMinister retient SlimPay, établissement de paiement agréé par la Banque de France, pour sa solution « SEPA Direct Debit ». Cette solution permet l’encaissement des sommes dues par les vendeurs professionnels abonnés aux services « SuperBoutiques » de la place de marché, depuis n’importe quel compte-bancaire de la zone SEPA, qui inclut 32 pays. Successeur du prélèvement automatique français qui disparaitra en 2014, le SEPA Direct Debit (SDD) est une solution novatrice que PriceMinister est un des premiers acteurs de l’hexagone à déployer. Il s’agit d’un moyen de paiement entièrement dématérialisé et fiable dans le temps, au contraire de l’encaissement par carte bancaire qui génère des incidents pour date de validité échue, dépassement de plafond ou du chèque qui reste une solution nationale.

Dans le cadre du développement du projet, j’ai été amené à choisir une solution de paiement en ligne. L’exercice étant nouveau pour moi et n’ayant pas de connaissances spécifiques sur le sujet, voici comme je m’y suis pris. La première étape est bien sûr de procéder à une recherche sur Internet. Je n’ai pas trouvé grand chose : quelques échanges dans des forums et un bon e-book . C’était assez toutefois pour dégrossir le sujet.
There is an inevitable and unavoidable point in the life of many successful web applications where you, as the creator of your amazing app, are going to have to accept your customers’ money. As fantastic as this is, it is also a complete headache. PlayNice.ly went through this process last year and it is only just getting entirely sorted out. There are bank accounts, merchant accounts, payment gateways and recurring billing systems… and they all have to talk to each other!
Payments giant PayPal has been offering online merchants the ability to use its Express Checkout service , which is a one-stop payment option streamlines the checkout process for consumers. A buyer does not have to reenter shipping, billing, or payment information for a PayPal payment, expediting the checkout process. All they need to do is enter their PayPal account login.
