Why Choose Realex?

Realex Payments is a leading European payment services provider, with offices in Dublin, London and Paris. We currently process in excess of €24 billion annually for over 12,500 clients including Virgin Atlantic, notonthehighstreet.com, Vodafone, Paddy Power and BooHoo.

Some of the key reasons merchants choose us over other gateways:

  • 3DSecure - Protect yourself against fraud and chargebacks. We fully support 3DSecure, which provides additional protection should a chargeback occur.
  • Access your funds quickly - The Acquiring Banks we work with typically settle funds into your account within 2 days, unlike 7 days for some of our competitors.
  • Pricing - As you scale your business, other payment processors can very quickly become expensive. We offer a flat per transaction rate that can be tailored to your business as you grow.
  • Customer Service - We don’t believe in IVRs, simply pick up the phone and speak with a familiar voice

Updates and bug fixes VirtueMart 2.6.8

  • Preventing double orders (3rd party developers may adjust their payments)
  • Shipment price display in product details
  • Better Itemid handling in the router
  • Thumbnail resizing if one dimension is 0 (same as already for vm3)
  • Router is using category model now, better use of already cached data
  • If One Page Checkout is disabled and Show checkout steps is activated, then the shipment and payment selection is only shown if a shipment/payment is already selected. So this give back the old VM1 behaviour
  • Little fix for shipment/payment tax with different VatTax rules
  • Fix for product cache (happened rare)
  • Lot small fixed typos, increased robustness, little enhancements
