If you offer Laybuy on your store and don't have Global Pay enabled, it means your customers can only use Laybuy for payment if their billing details are in the same country as your Laybuy merchant account.
Did you know that regardless of the countries that you ship to, you might have buyers with billing details from anywhere in the world? Even if you only ship products to one country, you might have buyers with billing details other than that country. For example, if someone is buying a gift for a family member in Australia while they are in the UK. The store may only ship to Australia but the buyer is in the UK, sending the order as a gift.
Laybuy Global Pay enables Laybuy account holders in other Laybuy markets to buy from your store with Laybuy. If a store doesn't have Global Pay enabled on their Laybuy merchant account, a buyer from Australia couldn't purchase from a New Zealand online store for example.
Enabling Laybuy Global Pay will allow customers from other markets/currencies to transact through your Laybuy account and settle the payments in your currency. Learn more at the Laybuy website.
