The Power of International Merchant Accounts

International merchant accounts are payment solutions that give e-commerce businesses the ability to accept credit card payments from consumers around the world. With an international merchant account from Instabill, merchants can accept and process payments in more than 160 currencies.

Many e-commerce businesses outside the US and Europe have difficulty finding international merchant accounts and therefor cannot expand their presence on the internet. As a result, e-commerce merchants reach a plateau, unable to process multicurrency transactions. Without international merchant accounts, the ceiling for an e-commerce business is rather low.

As an e-commerce pioneer, Instabill is committed to seeing your business develop its internet presence. Instabill has partnerships with acquiring banks worldwide to provide quality international merchant accounts to e-commerce merchants. As such, online businesses have global exposure and can process payments in practically any form of currency.
