Zooz’s new product provides an advanced HTML5 smart checkout that is highly adaptive and dynamically changes the user interface according to each device and operating system.
FINOVATE CONFERENCE, New York, NY, September 9, 2013 – Zooz, an innovative online payment solution provider, is making several important announcements during the Finovate Fall conference, taking place September 10-11 in New York. Zooz will preview its newest offering aimed at e-commerce merchants on stage, alongside a partnership case study presented by FirstData, who will deliver an overview of the mutual collaboration between Zooz and FirstData in the U.S. market. Recognized for driving cutting-edge innovation in the industry, Zooz’s latest offering extends their reach beyond retailers and mobile application developers to also support pure-play e-commerce merchants. Increasingly, retailers and e-commerce merchants are facing a growing problem because they want to be able to offer their customers and shoppers a unified checkout experience that works consistently across all platforms – web, mobile, or tablet.
Zooz’s new product provides an advanced HTML5 smart checkout that is highly adaptive and dynamically changes the user interface according to each device and operating system (i.e. Android, iOS, web) to present shoppers with an optimized experience across all channels. It also only requires a single implementation, enabling merchants to quickly deliver the ultimate web-based commerce experience to shoppers across desktop, tablets and smartphones.
Already used by thousands of merchants, Zooz’s latest functionality incorporates all the benefits of its flagship offering, including its “Fast Checkout” functionality, support for e-commerce sites and mobile apps, multiple payment methods, and its unique fraud detection capabilities, based on its patent-pending, device centric technology. Of particular appeal to merchants and retailers, Zooz takes the backend and frontend aspects of online payments and optimizes them into a single solution that enables businesses to improve the online payments experience for their customers and increase their revenues.
With HTML5 becoming better, faster and more ubiquitous, people increasingly expect an exceptional unified experience across all of the channels they use. Therefore, it’s crucial for retailers and merchants to keep up with consumers who adopt new technologies faster than they do. When using Zooz, merchants save invaluable time, since they don’t have to invest resources to become PCI-compliant, or undertake A\B testing of a user interface, integrate new payment methods, develop for different platforms or manage anti-fraud procedures. As part of optimizing the backend for merchants, from the onset, Zooz has also been providing a comprehensive set of security and fraud detection tools on top of standard best practices, enabling merchants to focus on their core business. Zooz’s new, comprehensive offering delivers merchants and developers with the highest value, range of functionality, and backed by the industry leader in merchant processing -- all to enable “commerce everywhere”. Following are some of Zooz’s latest product features:
- optimized user interface,
- one-click payment across different websites from the same device,
- ability to identify an address or leverage a shopper’s zip code, storing and presenting a shopper’s shipping details across different websites, and
- use of different UI elements for full compatibility with each operating system.
