Visa Canada has launched its Click to Pay online checkout service in the country following a successful launch in the U.S.
Visa says the service offers customers a secure way to pay via web, mobile, app or a connected device. The service is faster too as it eliminates the need for consumers to manually key-in personal account numbers and passwords each time they checkout, an obstacle with past online checkout services with 56 per cent of Canadians abandoning an online shopping cart because of manual processes.
"With the increasingly high numbers of online shoppers 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," says, president and country manager, Visa Canada. "This is 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."
