International card acquiring
If you use card payments to sell goods and services in your webshop or in stores across Europe, you struggle to standardise and harmonise your POS infrastructure and internal processes. ING’s International Card Acquiring solution can help lower your costs of card acceptance and support the needs of your treasury department.
