As the global shopping experience becomes more and more
impersonal, with customers increasingly preferring to make purchases online
rather than in-store, online merchants are looking for new and innovative ways
to interact with visitors on their sites and build brand loyalty with them.
Recommendations based on past purchases, saving returning
users’ credentials on-site, and the choice of signing in using existing social
accounts are simple ways that merchants can adapt their online stores for the
convenience and reception of customers.
The modern online shopper demands this level of service
whenever they make purchases – and if merchants don’t provide this, they can
easily find another company that will.
In the same way, merchants should insist on excellent
account management when choosing providers whose services they will use. The
relationship between payments provider and merchant is especially important to
nurture given that the handling of customers’ funds is so sensitive and
integral to the checkout process.
When choosing a payments provider, there are certain key
indicators that merchants should look for to ensure excellent standards of
- Pre-contract assessment – your payments provider
should work with you to assess your current payments landscape and business
goals, before creating an intelligent payments strategy that will maximise your
- Constant access to help and support – payment
companies should provide a named account manager with whom merchants have
regular contact, and who is always available should questions or issues arise. This includes route to escalation and
on-hand technical support 24/7.
- Upgrades where available – like any service
provider, payment companies are constantly improving their suite of products
and services. Your account managers should always keep you updated with the
latest advances in their payments technology.
