Skrill rolls out 1-Tap mobile payment option for merchants and consumers
Merchants can offer customers the opportunity to pay for goods in one tap on any device, rather than having to re-enter login details or credit card information.
Research shows that 33% of UK smartphone users made a purchase on a mobile device in 2011.
When customers make a payment via Skrill with a merchant for the first time, they will be required to enter their payment details as usual. Once complete, they will then be given the option to enable Skrill 1-Tap for future purchases, meaning that the one tap functionality will be enabled next time they come to pay with that specific merchant.
“With new the smartphone revolution, m-commerce has finally the potential to really take off,” said Martin Ott, co-CEO at Skrill. “But the truth is that, for many on-the-go consumers, the idea of using their mobile to enter payment information appears difficult and time-consuming. Skrill 1-Tap changes all this by offering a quick and easy way to mobile payments. Finally merchants have a solution that makes m-commerce much more convenient, opening up exciting new business channels and giving customers a seamless mobile shopping experience.”
