There is no ready-made add-on for integrating Alma with the CS-Cart platform at the time of this writing. Therefore, we created a custom one for Doctomarket.
For our client, an installment method for 2,3 or 4 payments was needed.
In the event that the client changes his mind about making a payment and cancels the selected payment method, he is automatically sent back to the checkout page.
Merchants pay transaction fees through the Alma payment service in full or in installments.
At the same time, the service can independently request additional information if there are any doubts about the reliability of the client, for example, access via API to a bank statement.
Thanks to the implemented installment payments:
The Doctomarket marketplace gains a competitive advantage in its niche and increases the conversion rate.
Customers receive a flexible payment system when placing an order.
It is now easier for vendors to sell high-value goods.
