Could you please shortly introduce yourself and Hellcase to our readers?
We are developers who play games, create software solutions, as well as web projects for games and players. Years ago, we started working with CS:GO in-game items (skins) and since then, we have already launched 7 websites with skins.
Our best and most popular project is Hellcase.com. It was created on the 5th of May, 2016 and this is when our collaboration with G2A PAY also started. We rapidly grew into the biggest case-opening website in the world (both in terms of visitors and payments).
- Our team now includes up to 40 members
- We have 2 offices in Europe (Development and Marketing)
- Over 6 million players have already registered. This represents a fifth of overall CS:GO owners.
- More than 90 million cases have been opened, as well as many Case Battles, Contracts and Upgrades
- Over 120 million of trades done by our in-game trading system via APIs.
In your experience, what are the advantages of selecting a payment gateway for an online business?
When we started this journey, our main task was to create a platform by gamers for gamers. We understand that G2A is one of the leading players in the gaming industry, so players trust this brand. The reason why we selected G2A PAY is the fact that currently, it is the most flexible payment gateway.
What’s your opinion about the simplified G2A PAY self-onboarding process?
Well, the integration process and KYC procedures are very slow for every company in Europe and the US. When we integrated Hellcase to G2A Pay, it took almost 3 weeks. Now, the registration process is much easier, you can sign digital documents and upload company documents to the G2A PAY panel.
Any advice to new merchants / startups when it comes to payment gateway selection?
If you are a startup or a games portal, then G2A PAY is a very good choice. They helped us a lot in promoting our platform, so now we have a huge audience and a lot of gamers choose G2A Wallet to pay for goods and services.
What main developments in digital commerce do you think will influence your business in the next 2 to 5 years?
Now, we are planning to create our own game and products, we don’t want to work with Valve, Steam community, and CS:GO at all. We have a keen interest in the blockchain technology and we are currently trying to understand it. Our plan is to create our own Blockchain App in the near future.
Hellcase is the website where you can open CS:GO cases to have fun and win great skins! We are currently looking for new ideas for new projects.
