Cíclica is a young and fast growing company. They started to sell their products online, but they needed a payment solution that would allow them to charge customers on real-time, easy and in completely secure way.
Descrition: Menstrual cup
Country: Costa Rica
Solution used: 4Geeks Payments
Cíclica contacted several payment providers, but none of them was able to provide the solution they were looking for. They all had very complex pricing models which made it impossible for Cíclica to start selling their products online without losing money on every transaction.
4Geeks, via 4Geeks Payments, is the first payment gateway which allows you to accept payments in real time, without requiring your customers' credit card details even before the transaction has been completed (i.e., pre-authorization).
This technology can be used not only with e-commerce but also with physical shops or restaurants where cashless transactions are required. Thus, it's very useful for Ciclica who wants to expand its business globally without worrying about security issues while accepting payments from foreign customers over the internet.
