Every customer is unique; so are their preferred payment methods.
As your SaaS expands to new territories, you need to accept more payment methods. FastSpring has deep expertise in global payment methods —
so you can grab market share no matter where your customers live.
FastSpring’s World of Payment Methods
More Payment Options = More Customers
Offering local payment options is one of the easiest ways
to increase revenue for SaaS and software companies. FastSpring sellers can easily accept payments using the most popular methods from countries around the globe! No conversions to calculate. No worrying about new payment options you may not even know about. Just turn on localized payments. We take care of the rest.
Accepting more payment methods isn’t just about adding credit card logos to your checkout. Different methods of payment come with their own risks, rules, and complexities. The best part of using FastSpring is that these risks and complexities are handled for you. Our system generates the highest acceptance rates in the industry by intelligently routing payments to the gateways and banks most likely to accept them.
Frequently Asked Questions
What about money orders, checks, wire transfers, ACH, etc?
We offer those too! FastSpring sellers can send invoices and take payments using more traditional B2B banking methods. Check out our Invoicing Service documentation, and you may also want to explore Manual Renewal Subscriptions and our Digital Invoicing features.
What payment methods can I offer using FastSpring?
It changes all the time, but we keep a current list of all our current available payment methods on our documentation page. We are constantly evaluating new and upcoming payment methods to see if they are mature and stable enough to accept at FastSpring. We only enable payment methods that meet strict criteria for risk and international compliance.
What if I don’t want to accept specific payment methods?
Not a problem. We usually recommend keeping all available payment methods turned on, but if you prefer, you can easily turn off any payment method so it’s not displayed or offered on your website.
Can I choose what payment methods are used for subscription rebills?
We give you as many options for rebills as we possible. There are nuances and limitations to some payment methods for automatic rebills for customer subscriptions. We keep close tabs on these regulations to make sure you can capture as much subscription revenue as possible while remaining compliant around the world. Refer to our documentation for the latest list of subscription-enabled payment methods.
Why can’t I just stick with the payment options I have today?
Some payment methods feel universal. To U.S. consumers, paying with a VISA or MasterCard credit card is a daily event. But other countries simply do not share those habits. To truly grow SaaS sales around the world, you must accept a wider variety of payment methods. Some of the payment options on our list may sound obscure to you, but not to those who use them daily!
