Accept VISA Electron payments in your webshop
VISA Electron is a debit card with over 394 million users worldwide, and is particularly well-represented in Spain, most Western European countries, Latin America, the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East and Africa. Thanks to an array of ‘built-in’ security functions, which send a warning if the purchase amount is too high, this debit card is especially popular among students, start-up companies and people with a limited budget.
The difference between this card and other VISA debit cards is that in order to pay using the VISA Electron card, the amount due must also be available in the linked bank account balance. With other VISA debit cards, it is possible to use the card to make payments which exceed the balance available, up to a pre-determined limit.
1. Select and request the account type that best suits your business needs.
2. Your account will immediately be ready for implementing and testing, however extra actions are required before going live.
3. Your account can go live once you have successfully finished testing and when your request is officially approved by ICEPAY.
NB: A special request procedure is required for AfterPay, credit card, SOFORT Banking, SEPA Direct Debit recurring and paysafecard. Please note that this process may take several weeks. Once your account goes live, you will be able to offer all available payment methods (per account type) in your webshop, except for the aforementioned. These specific payment methods will only be made available to you once your request is officially approved.
VISA Electron provides you with the opportunity to offer a method of payment in your webshop that is frequently used worldwide. Once you have completed the application procedure for credit cards (VISA/MasterCard), you will also be able to offer VISA Electron in your webshop. Since VISA Electron is owned by VISA, it may thus be offered under the same terms and conditions. This also ensures that the same high standard of security applies as that of the VISA credit cards.
