(Last Updated On: January 17, 2019)


The world is becoming a global village.
To compete globally, you need a payment gateway that supports your global ambition to accept payment from anyone, anywhere in the world. In order to pick the right payment gateway, make sure that it can process payment real-time, and have back-office functionalities with adequate customer support.

This perfectly describes VoguePay.com.

Below, I present uses cases for 3 international business audiences that we serve.

1.. VoguePay is International Payment Gateway For High Risk Merchants

If you operate a business classified as high risk you suddenly realize that your options for payment gateways to integrate are limited. We have heard from some of our merchants that the big two gateways (PayPal and Stripe) shut down their accounts.

Even though these companies are global payment gateways, neither of them is a good fit as:

  • Payment solution for Forex
  • Payment solution for Crypto
  • Payment solution for high risk business
  • Payment solution for Online gamings
  • Payment solution for Online dating/adult content
  • Payment solution for some types of digital downloads
  • Payment solution for Casino
  • Payment solution for Auction services

And it is not only the big two (PayPal and Stripe) that are guilty of this. Many global payment solutions deny merchants because of the high rates of charge-backs and frauds. Other payment gateways that on board such merchants charge highly ridiculous fees on long-term contracts. 

Other payment gateways reject high risk business…at VoguePay here’s how we work with you.

Unlike the other payment processors, VoguePay makes it easy for your type of businesses to accept payment securely. 

To be able to do this, we deployed a fit-for-purpose payment gateway.  It enables merchants to adequately manage payment risks with our risk evaluation algorithm that reduce their exposure. For example, beyond the typical security checks, every VoguePay transaction passes through five levels of assurance for Know Your Customer (KYC) and a high algorithm of fraud rules to manage risks and address chargebacks in order to keep both merchants and customers secure.

One of the reasons that businesses considered to be high risk use our payment gateway is because we share with them our risk assessment system in order to assist them in improving their operations too. 

Below are some of the advantages that businesses classified as high risk get when they use VoguePay.

3. VoguePay is International payment gateway partner for Crypto and Forex platforms developer and web design agency

Do you provide software platform or develop websites for cryptocurrency and FOREX trading websites ?

If yes. You might have noticed 2 things.

  • Number 1:  More trading platforms for cryptocurrency and Forex are being released to the market. This means crypto and Forex exchangers are changing platform providers more often than before.  
  • Number 2: Demands for web development services might be reducing as emerging exchangers choose freelancer or pick a website template to develop their website instead of choosing your service.

So, in this situation how do you position your product and services ?

The best option is to offer a full suite of services to make your offer sticky. For some providers, this means offering marketing strategies, providing assistance with lead acquisition and throwing in some consulting perks. All these are good add-ons, unfortunately, because these are added to make your offer attractive, it is not guaranteed to increase your profit margin per customer.

But, with VoguePay aggregator program, you can provide additional value to your crypto and FOREX customers while making more margins.
