Intro to PayRank
PayRank is a patent-pending smart algorithm developed by Xsolla to conveniently sort and rank payment methods, minimizing clicks for players. It automatically predicts buyers’ payment preferences and behaviors and presents players with the most popular local payment options based on a variety of factors including: location, payment history, monetary value, etc.
New Tech Update to PayRank
Recently we’ve made many customization and functional changes to the smart PayRank system based off the feedback we’ve received from partners including:
- Manual configuration of the 6 most desired payment methods to show on the PayRank system
- Payment information for the last used payment method is stored to enable future one click easy payments
- Auto realignment of the ranking system in real-time if multiple games manually select similar payment providers for a specific region
Although our smart algorithm effectively scours the system to provide the most up-to-date and accurate payment methods to show for the PayRank system, it is essentially limited to the empirical data it receives.
There is always room for improvement within the system and in order to observe and provide the most flexible and accurate experience, we invite our partners to share their expertise in their respective regions for user payment behavior by manually setting their PayRank. This custom configuration by our partners will pave the way for the PayRank algorithm to adjust itself and learn from the manual inputs to further adjust it’s payment sorting mechanism to be as accurate as possible for the respective region.
Our system is also in compliance with PCI vulnerability standards in order to create as secure of an environment as possible for our valuable users.
Intro to Payment Gateway
The Xsolla Payment Gateway Hub is a solution that allows developers to take advantage of our robust technology while keeping current financial relationships with payment providers.
Simply put, the Payment Gateway Hub facilitates consolidation of direct merchant accounts under one easy-to-use API for both credit cards and alternative payment methods. Developers are granted full access to the in-game store management system known as PayStation 3.0 & Mobile PayStation 3.0, as well as optional modules including: Fraud Protection, Customer Support, and Analytics.
Tech Additions to Payment Gateway
Our goal is to provide our users with a perfectly unified UI by providing all payment options including credit cards, PayPal, and Xsolla’s alternative payment methods in one easy-to-use location. Even if you have prior agreements with credit card companies and, for instance, PayPal and decide not to use these methods through Xsolla, these options will still be available and will also be supported by our fraud protection, customer support, and analytics services. All transactions are connected and reported within our system for an extremely convenient method of management for our users.
We currently support 15 payment methods in our Payment Gateway Hub including: QIWI Wallet, PayPal, Yandex, paysafecard, Amazon, dotpay, Skrill, Openbucks, Braintree, Stripe, Steam, Bitcoin, Vantiv, Rixty, and Boku. We are constantly working on extending this list and will add more payment methods as time and necessity permits.
If you would like for us to add another payment method right away, you can simply contact us to add it into our gateway system.
