Available options to all Verotel merchants

Credit cards
Verotel is a registered member service provider for Visa, MasterCard, JCB, Discover and Diners Club and has unrivalled relationships with thousands of member banks worldwide, competitive rates and high volume discounts.

US Check
Verotel allows US customers without access to a credit card to instantly pay online by check. Your customer simply provides their checking account information, including routing, account and a valid check number, and Verotel verifies the data before processing the payment in seconds.

Direct Debit Europe
Verotel allows your European customers to pay by Direct Debit - one of Europe's most popular and trusted payment methods. Your customer uses their existing online banking details, a convenient and secure way to process direct debits in Europe. The payment is instantly direct debited from the customer's bank account.

Direct Debit Europe is currently available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Slovakia.

Verotel Bitcoin Billing
Verotel allows all merchants to accept Bitcoin: the ideal cryptocurrency for online entertainment content. The credit card industry is built on interchange fees and discount rates of affiliated banks. With the absence of banks in Bitcoin transactions, Verotel is able to offer a simple 5% all-inclusive pricing on all Bitcoin transactions. Integration of Bitcoin in the Verotel platform is already done. Merchants can simply enable the Bitcoin payment option in the Verotel Control Center.

Chargeback ratio

The chargeback ratio is the number of charge backs issued in a period of four weeks divided by the total number of transactions in that same period. Verotel merchants do no pay for chargeback fees, although the base processing rate will be affected and adjusted depending on your chargeback percentage.

If the number of transactions in the last four weeks, with a two-week lag period, exceeds 50 transactions, then the chargeback ratio will be calculated. If this ratio is 1.0% or more, a surcharge of 2.5% will apply to the base rate.

Our International support and account management team accurately tracks all transactions and will contact merchants if chargeback ratios are trending too high.

Recurring transactions

A surcharge of 1.5% applies on all recurring transactions. (This does not apply to the first transaction of a recurring billing subscription).
