eWallets have been convenient and widely accepted for a number of years. Merchants benefit from receiving the money quickly and easily, and can send out the goods to the customer immediately. Often, ewallets offer merchants low fees and the customer pays anonymously using the virtual wallet, without having to pass on any bank or credit card details.
E-wallets are generally topped up using bank transfers, direct debits or linked credit card to the account. They can now also be used in retail shops, where a special app on a smartphone manages the payment process using QR codes or NFC technology. Computop Paygate offers a wide range of eWallets:
