Ingenico, a French-based global payments provider, announced Wednesday (Oct. 28) that it plans to launch Ingenico Connect, a redesigned integration and mobile-optimized checkout solution.
The set of tools for online merchants will enable easier integration with Ingenico’s ePayments platform and aims to increase conversion with enhanced mobile interfaces. The solution will first be made available on the GlobalCollect platform, with plans to extend to the Ogone platform in 2016, Ingenico confirmed.
“Today’s merchants must offer their ultra-connected customers a consistent and seamless purchasing experience,” Sajal Agarwal, Director of Product Marketing and Innovation at Ingenico ePayments, said in a press release. “Our new solution will empower all merchants to enhance the consumer experience on their payment pages so that they can grasp the opportunity to develop their online business."
Ingenico Connect aims to optimize the mobile checkout experience through preferred local payments methods and new mobile interfaces for any device a consumer chooses to shop on.
"Integrating with Ingenico Connect is made simpler and faster with a new, developer-centric integration toolkit, which leverages the latest technologies, interfaces and tools that developers expect into one dedicated area, the Developer Hub,” Ingenico’s statement explained.
The new solution will also leverage the security of tokenization to ensure merchants have minimized exposure to payment data, significantly reducing security breach liability and the complexities that come with compliance, Ingenico confirmed.
