Do I have to set up my own agreements with BNPL providers to use Optty?

Yes.,The commercial relationship is always between the merchant and the BNPL provider. The BNPL will provide you with your credentials to integrate to their services. Optty will provide the link to the BNPL sign-up pages from within the Optty Retail Control Centre.

How do I know if I’m offering the right BNPL?

The Reporting page within the Optty Retail Control Centre allows you to monitor, in real time, the number of attempts and successful transactions by BNPL and currency. It also allows you to track BNPL performance over various time frames to ensure you are getting the best from the BNPL’s.
You can re-order how the BNPL’s are displayed on your site, and temporarily deactivate a BNPL if required, all from within the Optty Retail Control Centre. Get Started HERE

I already offer BNPL, why do I need Optty?

Multiple BNPL’s will give your customers more choice, which in turn increases basket & order size. The Optty integration platform allows you to offer multiple BNPLs with a single integration in minutes.

I already have Stripe, Ayden, Worldpay or another Payment Gateway. Why do I need Optty?

Optty is not a payment gateway provider. Optty allows you to easily integrate BNPL partners onto your site, with one quick and easy process. This gives your customers more choices at the checkout, leading to high conversions and basket value.

Do I have to break my payment gateway to get Optty?

No. Optty will work alongside your current payment gateways. Optty allows you to add Buy Now Pay Later providers alongside the standard single payment card gateways. The BNPL will take all payments and then send the settlement direct to the merchant.

Can I have my payment gateway and Optty on my checkout?

Yes. Optty will allow you to display BNPL alongside your current card payment services. This gives your customers the option to pay in full or spread the payment for their purchase.

Does Optty support Paypal and Paypal “Pay In Four” and how do I activate it?

Yes. If available in your region, simply select from the list of BNPL’s within the Optty Retail Control Centre.
