How to let your customers pay anytime, anywhere

Four steps to digital payments

 

Unless you’ve been frozen in a cryopreservation ice chamber for the last twenty years, only to awaken to a strange new world with no VHS tapes and a baby Yoda obsession, you know that online and digital payments are fundamental to how people buy things. Today the question businesses face isn’t if they need to adapt to the age of connected commerce—a time when shoppers expect to make purchases anytime, anywhere, from any device—but rather how.

The challenge can appear particularly daunting for small businesses. A 2019 study performed by PYMNTS and Visa found that only 58 percent of respondents reported making a purchase at a physical store, an 8.4% drop from the previous year. Meanwhile, “…36 percent reported using their computers, 26 percent reported using mobile apps and 9.6 percent reported using a voice-activated device.” That’s a lot of channels to cater to.

If you’re a small business with limited time and resources, the key is to find an all-in-one platform that can take the weight off your shoulders. With only one platform to manage payments become a whole lot simpler. This is where the Authorize.net® platform comes into play.
