For recurring payments, GlobalCollect uses tokenization to enable 1-click payments from mobile devices, which enhances the user experience and drives higher conversion rates. Tokenization shifts the burden of storing sensitive consumer data to GlobalCollect, reducing the complexity and costs associated with PCI compliance for merchants. No sensitive data is exchanged during transactions, reducing risk of data breaches and reputation damage.
Mobile optimized payment products
GlobalCollect offers a broad range of local payment products which are optimized for use on mobile devices. On the hosted payment pages, almost all payment products which are not redirected to a third party (like PayPal or iDEAL) are also optimized for mobile devices to offer the best user experience and increase conversion.
Responsive Hosted Payment Pages
The responsive hosted payment pages adapt automatically to the screen size of your customers’ device, whether it is a mobile phone, tablet or desktop. A unique page editor guarantees that changing the look and feel of the hosted payment pages is fast and easy for eCommerce companies to do themselves.
Mobile SDKs for iOS and Android
Leveraging a brand-new REST API, GlobalCollect’s new mobile SDKs enable merchants to easily create a native, in-app payment experience, a key driver of conversion. The iOS and Android SDKs provide payment fields and backend integration, which speeds up your development time. All non-redirect payment products are processed within the app, without a redirect to websites outside the app.
