Payments
Overview

Learn about payment methods

Accepting more payment methods helps your business expand its global reach and improve checkout conversion.

We categorize payment methods into seven families:

  • Cards
  • Bank debits
  • Bank redirects
  • Bank transfers
  • Buy now pay later
  • Vouchers
  • Wallets

Each family has similar features, a single integration, and common checkout experiences. After you’ve integrated one payment method, you can add another within the same family with minimal changes to your integration.

To learn more about which payment methods are right for your business, see our payment method guide.
