Subscription businesses that want to expand globally know they need to offer the payment methods that their prospects in different countries prefer. They need a gateway that can accept international currencies along with a wide variety of payment methods global customers tend to use.

For example, in Germany customers want to pay with Giropay. In the Netherlands, iDeal is popular. And business will increase conversions more easily by accepting the Sofort payment method that’s commonly used in Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain, Great Britain, Italy, and Poland.
