    COLOGNE, Germany, July 30 /CNW/ - British online merchants are
increasingly attracting more international consumers. Whereas consumers from
Germany make up over 95% of custom in German online shops, only 45% of

    Nearly one third of international customers stem from countries outside
Europe, like the USA or Asia. The Pago Report 2008 has just been published by
Pago eTransaction Services, the international Acquirer and Payment Service

analyses developments in European online consumer and payment behaviour,

by prominent experts from the major credit card organisations, the Deutsche
Bank, giropay and the University of Karlsruhe round off the Pago Report 2008.
