Visa has rolled out its free “Checkout” service for customers and merchants, to help make the act of paying even easier, and more secure. Essentially, Visa Checkout is a digital payment service that lets customers use a single, secure sign-on across channels and devices using a their preferred payment method.
Laptop Magazine describes it from the consumer side: “After setting up an account … you can register any debit or credit card for instant access. Once you’re on a website that supports Visa Checkout, you simply tap or click the Visa Checkout logo in order to pay for your products instantly.”
Thus, any merchants using Visa Checkout can make life that much easier for their customers, and are able to accept whatever card or account they want to use to pay with.
And now, AVPS can make it easy to make life easy, by helping you set up Visa Checkout for your website for free, via our own partnership with Authorize.net!
Among the many benefits:
- Secure – Visa Checkout uses numerous layers of security, including fraud-monitoring systems, and encrypted tokens using hash algorithms to help keep payment information even safer.
- Open – Visa Checkout accepts any major credit or debit card making it that much easier on your customers, and that much easier for you to get the sale
- Free! – Did we mention yet that it’s free!?
Laptop Magazine also notes a key difference between a PayPal checkout, and one using Visa Checkout, when your customers are getting ready to pay: “Clicking the ‘Check out with PayPal’ option on most online stores redirects you to a separate login page, (but) selecting the Visa Checkout icon simply brings up a pop-up window that allows you to stay on the checkout page.”
No separate logins for your customers then, or a chance for them to get knocked off the main checkout page before finalizing the purchase!
If you’re ready to start exploring how Visa Checkout can make life easier for both you, and your customers, we’re ready to help!
