As South Africans embrace digital and mobile payments, Visa introduced Click to Pay, a payments solution with an online checkout that eliminates passwords, protects data with smart security.
On retail websites or mobile apps displaying the click to pay icon, consumers that have enabled their card will not have to enter a 16-digit primary account number, look up passwords or complete forms to make a purchase.
Consumers can pay with confidence with their Visa card where they see a Click to Pay icon where Visa is accepted.
Click to Pay uses advanced technology and authentication methods, including device binding and biometrics to protect transactions.
This fast, easy and secure way to pay will be available for consumers who choose to shop via web, mobile, app or connected device.
Thousands of merchants have already transitioned to the click to pay online checkout experience globally.
For merchants, this checkout solution can help reduce shopping cart and donation abandonment while providing a single integration for multiple card brands – meaning a simpler and smoother overall digital checkout experience.
“While the increasingly high numbers of digital shopping continue to rise in the wake of COVID-19, we are committed to providing solutions that lay the groundwork for the next generation of simple, secure, and better ways to pay,” said Hadi Raad, Vice President and Head of Digital Solutions, Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEMEA), Visa.
“This is truly a winning solution that will help merchants reduce shopping cart abandonment while providing a single integration for participating card brands – meaning a simpler and smoother overall digital checkout experience. The vision for the future is that Click to Pay will provide consumers a streamlined experience across any digital checkout environment or network, mirroring the consistent, interoperable checkout experience that exists today in physical stores.”
