Bill Ready, senior vice president, global head of merchant and next-generation commerce, PayPal, comments on the expansion of One Touch for Web technology to the UK and Canada
Last month, we announced the launch of One Touch for Web in the US, which enables consumers to pay with a single click on the Web after their first login. Today we are pleased to share the expansion of One Touch for Web to merchants and consumers internationally, starting with Canada and the UK.
With the extension of One Touch for mobile and web browsers, merchants can now offer their customers in the UK and Canada this same great buying experience across the Web, enabling more seamless and secure shopping.
Most PayPal merchants will automatically have One Touch enabled for their customers, without needing to do any integration. Consumers that choose to pay via One Touch will soon be able to securely checkout across millions of PayPal-enabled websites in a single touch, without having to re-enter their login information.
Last year, we launched One Touch for native mobile, the industry’s first single touch payment experience on iOS and Android. Since then, we’ve seen tremendous results and an improved buying experience for consumers and merchants alike.
Merchants like Airbnb, Boxed, Jane.com, Lyft, Munchery, YPlan have shared that One Touch led to an immediate increase in sales, average order values, customer adoption and loyalty. And because One Touch enables consumers to pay without entering any payment information even at signup, it helps to increase customer adoption and address checkout abandonment.
At PayPal, enabling global commerce experiences that connect consumers and merchants in a seamless, secure way across devices, platforms and channels is at the core of everything we do.
One Touch for Web will start rolling out in Canada and the UK, in the next 24 hours. We will continue to introduce these consumer experiences to more countries this summer.
