Introduction to Bambora

This part explains what it is Bambora does, and how you get started using Bambora.

What is Bambora?

Bambora is a payment company with more than 20 years of experience with online and instore payments. You can get all your payment solutions from us - instore, online, in-app. These pages revolve around our online solutions. 

Can I buy an online shop at Bambora?

No, Bambora is a payment company, and we focus solely on the operation of our payment solutions. We do not offer hosting or shop systems.

Do I need a taxID/CVR number?

Yes and no. Your company must be registered to get an acquirer agreement. But you can sign up for a free test account and try our payment window without being registered.

What is an acquirer?

An acquirer is a bank which takes care of the money transfer from the customer’s account to your account. To accept card payments online you need an agreement with an acquirer (an acquirer or merchant agreement). Please note that an acquirer agreement for physical sale cannot be used for online business.

If you choose Bambora Online, you get an all-in-one payment solution which includes both payment window and acquiring.

You can get stand-alone acquiring as well. We call this product Bambora Acceptance - click here to read more.

Can I try and test Bambora's system?

Indeed. Sign up for a free test account, and you can try it all and see how it works. If you choose to keep your account and use Bambora as your payment gateway, we‘ll upgrade your test account to a production account.

A test account is completely free. You don't start paying until you accept real payments.

How much does it cost?

Our prices depend on your type of account and the solutions you choose. You can find our prices here (Danish).

At Bambora, you pay a set-up fee (which is a one-off payment), a monthly subscription fee, and a fee per transaction.

However, a test account is free, and you can try it all out before you decide whether you want to use Bambora. You don’t start paying until you accept real payments.

What is Fraud Fighter?

Fraud Fighter is Bambora's very own security product which protects your business from fraud and misuse.

Can I change from another payment gateway to Bambora?

Indeed, you can. You can use your existing acquirer agreement, and all you have to do is create a Bambora account. Please state that you’re shifting from another payment gateway, and state which one. 

Using two payment gateways in the transitional period is not an issue.

What is PCI?

What does it mean that Bambora is PCI compliant?

PCI is short for payment card industry. The PCI standard is an international security standard called the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (in short, the PCI DSS).

The PCI standard was developed in 2005 by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, which is a council formed by the five largest payment card providers in the world: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, and Discover. The goal of the standard is to increase the level of security for online payments and create common security requirements across the payment card industry.

The PCI standard specifies a number of requirements for how payment card information is managed, stored, and transmitted. As a Payment Service Provider, Bambora must meet the requirements of the standard, and we are PCI Level 1 compliant, which is the highest level of security within the standard.

Once a year, an external agency validates our security policies and ensures that we comply with the 200 security controls of the PCI standard.

Is Bambora affected by SSLv3 POODLE attack?

No. We do not accept this type of vulnerability on our platform.

POODLE attack is a vulnerability in old browsers  that allows hackers to access data for users with older browser versions.

If you are using an older version of your browser, you might see an error message about the connection failing to be established. This can occur for the payment window as well as the Bambora administration.

To solve it, upgrade the old version of your browser on your computer to the newest version or simply switch to another browser.

Do I have to include a link to ODR?

No later than February 15, 2016, all European webshops must link to the new European dispute resolution platform. 

We recommend that our customers place a link to ODR in their terms and conditions.

Currently, we’re not planning to include a link to ODR in our payment window.
