BlueSnap Local Acquiring

Local acquiring, or processing cross-border payments as if they were local, has the benefit of generating additional revenue and is critical for businesses that operate in more than one country. At BlueSnap, we understand and value the business advantages that come with local acquiring so we aim to make it simple for any merchant to take advantage of it for their business.


Local acquiring increases the number of successful payments and minimizes the costs associated with cross-border fees. In addition, you'll be able to accept more currencies and payment methods around the world, including popular payment methods like PayPal and Apple Pay. Giving customers the option to pay in the currency they want can help reduce the potential for checkout abandonment.

With a single integration to BlueSnap, you get access to our global network of banks. There's no need to manage multiple integrations, source local acquirers, and comply with ever-changing requirements, as BlueSnap takes care of all this for you. While we can process payments globally in all our supported countries, we can process payments locally in the 45+ countries listed below.
