Benefits of using Zonos Payments

Local currency

A key reason for cross-border cart abandonment is the inability to pay in the customer’s local currency. The customer disadvantages of this include:

  • Extra costs upward of 5% or more in currency markups and credit card fees.
  • Due to currency fluctuations, customers can lose money on full refunds, e.g. returns or cancellations.
  • Customers do not love surprises.
