We live in a world that is more connected than ever. But the leading connector is not social media or even worldwide travel: our wallets are meeting more businesses than we are meeting people. In 2020, over 1 billion credit card payments were processed every day. The number of transactions continues to increase.

As the world becomes more integrated, many international travelers run into the issue of processing funds from different banks across continents, as well as credit cards being flagged for fraud. This creates friction for both the traveler and the business, as both lose out on the abandoned purchase. However, digital wallets present a seamless, easy solution to this problem, providing new opportunities for revenue streams and markets. 

What is Global Payment Processing?

A rising trend for several years now, global payments are any transaction that occurs between the customer’s bank and the business’ bank that do not reside in the same country. A global payment processor is a third party business that helps make these global transactions go much more smoothly. These processors aren’t confined to a specific bank or region, which allows them to escape fees or waiting periods. Instead, they can instantly and easily transfer the money from customer to business regardless of location or currency. 

Digital Wallets: The Best Global Payment Processors

Even if you’ve never heard the term digital wallet before, you’ve probably heard some of their names. PayPal, Venmo, Alipay, Klarna, and KakaoPay are just a few of the world’s most popular digital wallets. They can hold all of a consumer’s credit card or bank information for use at any time or place, as long as the business accepts them. Digital wallets use one-time QR-codes and tokenization methods to ensure no one gets ahold of your customers’ bank information, making them far more secure than credit cards. And, there are no fees or barriers to using them internationally, giving even more incentive for consumers to use them and businesses to accept them. 

Digital wallets are rising in popularity across the world, especially among international travelers. The only downside is that there are so many of them, and not every business accepts all of the different digital wallets. And some don’t take any. There’s nothing more discouraging for a customer than going into a store, finding the perfect item, and then finding out that the business doesn’t accept their digital wallet. That’s where Pockyt comes in.
