For e-commerce businesses, competition for the same cart is growing, and cart abandonment can be a real challenge. One major influence on the e-commerce checkout experience is a smooth payments process - both during checkout and when it comes to refunds.

For finance teams, the ability to provide the best possible experience and arm customers with the payment method options they’ve come to expect means managing multiple payments providers, methods and banks; working to reduce costs due to chargebacks and fees; and staying on top of reconciliation and disbursements.
