In July 2014, Visa Checkout debuted in the United States, Australia and Canada. Fast forward to 2015 and the convenient payment solution, which lets you log into your account with just your username and password and the click of a button to complete your purchase, is embarking on a world tour expected to reach 16 countries and 4 continents by the end of the year.
Fellow Visa account users in Argentina, Chile, China, Peru, Mexico, New Zealand and South Africa have joined the Visa Checkout club, with Brazil, Colombia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and United Arab Emirates able to use the service before 2016.
Visa Checkout also benefits from the security of tokenization, using the same Visa Token Service that replaces 16-digit account numbers with tokens in order to better protect your sensitive info. Visa Checkout has proved to be a technology that we don’t just download and forget.
More than 75% of people who’ve signed up continue to be active users. Making purchases without having to type in your account and shipping information each time is a consumer dream come true. The global community of Visa Checkout users seems to agree.
