Optimization of payment solutions

For a better PSP performance and lower costs

Optimization of checkout flows

For a better client experience and more conversion

More sales at lower costs

EcomStream is an independent consultancy and is specialized in optimization of online, omnichannel and marketplace payment solutions, and optimization of checkout flows.

The goal is to achieve much lower costs for you as a retailer/merchant, while creating a much better customer experience for your customers.

EcomStream operates a lean organizational model. No overhead, just expertise. Flexible, on demand. To improve the performance and to reduce the costs of your payment solution, fast.

You thought the payments market was transparent? It is actually often a black box. Hidden costs and fuzzy rate structures are no exception. Many clients experience their “a-ha erlebniss” after project completion.


If the costs of my payment solution would be lower, that would free up budget for growth. What are the options to save on this? 💶


I’m suffering from too many drop offs in my online checkout funnel. It’s a conversion killer and it should be improved. 🚀

“Ramon did a great consultancy job with us. He analysed our Payment Service Provider (PSP) contract and led the way forward to renegotiate our contract. The outcome led to a considerable savings of >30% on our annual spend with our PSP. Ramon proved in depth actionable knowledge which helped us tremendously.
