“Paris”, a new European payment method, used Ginger’s Bulking Service to get their payment service available for the Dutch market in just a matter of weeks, skipping all technical complexity and significantly reducing their time-to-market.

Adding country-specific functionality; complex and time-consuming

After successfully establishing the value of their service in Belgium, “Paris” was looking to expand their offerings into Dutch territories. They soon ran into the complexities of specific Dutch customer needs, which are significantly different from their Belgium counterparts.

In order to join the payment game in The Netherlands, there are a lot of hoops to jump. And being a relatively new kid on the block, meant that “Paris” already had a lot of ground to cover.

There are multiple regulatory institutions to abide by, new features requests, an organisation to build, new marketing initiatives, and much more.

As a result, getting your application ready for The Netherlands can be quite a challenge. A significant amount of research and development is required to get everything set up. It requires a large investment in time and money, weighing heavily on your resources and time-to-market.

Easy functionality add-on with Ginger’s Bulking service

By using Ginger’s Bulking service, “Paris” was able to ready their offering for the Dutch market in just weeks, skipping a significant chunk of product development that otherwise would have taken months to complete.

Ginger’s Bulking Service is a battle-tested web service that, allows your application to group (bulk) payments and transactions in any way that suits your business and with unparalleled speed & ease. This solution helps to optimize reporting or reduce transaction costs. The single RESTful API interface provides all the controls you need, and extensive reporting capabilities ensure you’re always in-the-know of what has happened.

Getting Paris up and running

After initial assessment of the requirements, Ginger joined forces with “Paris’” tech team to get the Bulking solution up and running for “Paris’” Platform.

The Bulking service is, like the SEPA connector and all other connectors, managed by Ginger and operated by the client. We make sure it keeps running smoothly, you use it to get the job done. “Paris” uses the Bulking service to optimize reporting capabilities and reduce the cost setting of their services in the Dutch market.

But we have so much work to do and our backlog is growing everyday. We were extremely happy that Ginger was able to deliver us this service.
