July is Independent Retailer Month, a ‘a global ‘Shop Local’ campaign that runs annually throughout July to highlight the important role smaller, local, independent retailers play in the communities they serve, the local economy they contribute to, and in the retail sector as a whole.’
At Secure Trading we work with many multinational retailers, helping them to reach customers all over the world – but we also support thousands of small and medium sized retailers, both online-only and those that have added an ecommerce arm to enhance a physical store.
Independence is important to us too. Secure Trading is proud to be an independent payment processor – we are not bank-owned, which means we can work with acquirers across the UK and Europe, the US and Latin America, Asia and Australasia, brokering the very best deals for our merchants. Those merchants are not tied to specific banks, so they can choose the deal that’s right for them, enjoy greater freedom and service levels, and collaborate with a huge range of ecommerce service partners to enhance their online offering.
