The whole checkout experience is very fragile, and getting the experience right is always a big challenge. to comply to the  Data Security Standards and also get the user to take the motivated action of completing the whole ‘Checkout’ process is a tough ask. After analyzing thousands of checkout pages, we finally deliver the perfect checkout pages that fit both PCI compliance and conversion rate puzzle.

First-off: Why the Hosted Checkout Pages?

If you wish to accept credit cards for your business, it is critical for you to have a checkout page that complies to Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards. For businesses of any size, this is a laborious process and could stretch out for months, an alternative to this is to start off with a hosted checkout page of any PCI compliant services such as ChargeBee.

However, with varying needs of every customer each checkout page needed to be optimized to the correct fit of the merchants and their services or products.  So getting the framework right for the hosted checkout pages was even more pronounced. And after tons of research and a host of new features, here’s unravelling the key to perfect checkout pages.

Some of you have already had the behind the curtains access and have been helping us beta test it(And a real big thank you for that!). For the rest of you, let me take you for a spin on what’s new and and the step behind it.

Re-imagine you Checkout Flow

Checkout pages tend to be long, dull and nowhere near to fun. Heck, some could even scare customers away with the sheer length and number of fields in the form. So our magic solution: Introducing Rhapsody, a layered checkout flow to guide your customers through, one step at a time.

Or, do you need a shipping address too on your checkout page and does the whole form’s length give you an icy fear? Look to the Minimal theme for a clear and minimalistic checkout impression

Call the shots: What stays and what it says

Ever wondered, deeper reasoning behind why your checkout page has a Subscribe button when technically it should be inclined towards Submit, 구독 신청 or at least Abbonarsi(Oh! That’s Korean and Italian for ‘Subscribe’). Now choose what fields you wish to collect in your checkout page and customize it to what you wish to say in it.
