JazzCash Introduces Hosted Checkout
Islamabad – 31st October, 2017: JazzCash Team is excited to announce a secure, customizable & seamless payment experience right on your website’s checkout page – Hosted Checkout. With growing e-commerce and online payments in Pakistan, JazzCash Payment Gateway is now offering truly unique and visionary features to help you run your online business.
With Hosted Checkout, customers shopping online can enjoy an array of online payment solutions (Credit/Debit Card, Mobile Account & Voucher Payment) offered by JazzCash. Merchants/Online businesses using the JazzCash Payment Solution get the added benefit of customizing their checkout page with their own logos and brand colors. This solution will give online shoppers a seamless and secure user payment experience from first to last click, reducing e-commerce website’s drop rate right at the checkout page.
This added feature in the JazzCash Payment Gateway also limits the risk which comes with storing confidential buyer information. With Hosted Checkout, buyers’ card details are directly sent to secure MasterCard Payment Servers, eradicating a number of Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) reservations regarding storage of information. Since JazzCash will be handling all payments on dealer’s behalf, all worries regarding annual validation checks, card scheme penalties or fines are eradicated.
In legacy Payment Gateways, customers are redirected to their Checkout page which adds an extra hop, impacting customer journey resulting in increased drop rate at checkout page. Moreover, slow internet connection can terminate customers’ session further increasing drop rate. With Hosted Checkout payment solution, merchants will be able to control their customers’ journey and provide customized interface aligned with their website from first to the last click.
“Hosted Checkout is an amazing new feature we have developed for JazzCash Payment Gateway. The need was there, since e-commerce is growing at an exponential rate, while buyers expect every shopping site to have online payment facilities. With the Hosted Checkout feature, we are looking to bring ease in the daily operations for our Payment Gateway users, so they concentrate on other matters of the business, while JazzCash takes care of the online payment front,” said Aniqa Afzal Sandhu, Chief Digital Officer – Jazz.
