Yet another ‘first in the world’ by Juspay, launches Juspay Safe for merchants after securing funding from Haresh Chawla
How many times have you dropped out from the payments process because you kept on waiting for the OTP or you couldn’t locate the card/bank account number?
Globally, 21% of online shoppers (Statista research) abandoned their basket due to the process taking too long. To counter this problem, three months ago Paypal unveiled single click payment method for merchant apps. Dubbed One Touch, the method allows mobile users to log in once with their user names and passwords, then simply touch or click on a “buy” button for all subsequent transactions with that merchant.
