“Consumers around the world want to pay for goods using the methods they know and trust,” said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap. “In the BRIC countries, we are giving global sellers a competitive edge by stacking their checkout pages with the payment options their customers want to see. Overall, our goal is to help merchants break into new global markets, eliminate snags that cause shoppers to abort the purchase process, and ultimately increase sales.”
