Visa Checkout Market Momentum
Visa Checkout is already making it easier for millions of consumers to pay with their cards online and on any device. Over three million Visa Checkout accounts have been created to date, and Visa Checkout merchants see a 70%+ average conversion for existing users making a purchase.
Visa Checkout is an online service from Visa that makes it easier to pay using a computer, tablet or mobile phone. Consumers simply store their shipping and payment information in a secure account with Visa once, and they never have to re-enter it again when shopping online at merchants who offer Visa Checkout. When a user sees the Visa Checkout button as a payment option, they simply log into their account, enter their username and password, and click a button to complete the purchase.
