Payment Methods – Technical eCulturisation

Payments - That's what you are working for!  Therefore it is especially important to make sure that you offer the right payment gateway to every audience, whether locally or globally.

The decision of which online payment method to offer to your visitors is strongly influenced by the target audience's tendency to uncertainty avoidance. A risk averse culture usually also shows signs of preference for payment methods, for which a minimum of details needs to be provided online.

Only one reason, why a German audience still sticks to some payment methods which would be considered as old fashioned by an American audience. Or why Chinese online shoppers avoid using credit cards online, but Singaporians don't have any objections with this payment method.
