In September, One Touch mobile payments was announced with PayPal in the US, the industry’s first and only single touch payment experience across Android and iOS.
Today, in an effort to help people and businesses connect more seamlessly, reduce friction from buying on mobile and support innovation globally, Braintree are rolling out One Touch with PayPal in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
With One Touch, people can pay across their favorite apps in a single touch across platforms, eliminating the need for usernames and passwords each time you pay, while maintaining the trust and security that Braintree and PayPal have long been known for. One Touch gives consumers a faster and safer mobile buying experience, and gives merchants the benefit of reduced shopping cart abandonment and increased sales.
Innovative apps around the world have already enabled One Touch — the fastest and safest way to pay on a mobile device. US-based Jane.com,ParkWhiz, StubHub, Type Tees by Threadless and YPlan, have enabled One Touch, as well Fashionis in Italy. Others like Cabonline in Sweden, JustPark in the UK and Polagram in France are planning to integrate in the coming weeks.
Merchants from YPlan to StubHub have already reported a decrease in shopping cart abandonment and an increase in revenues as a result of One Touch. YPlan, for example, reported a double digit increase in conversions since having enabled One Touch, while StubHub saw a 50% increase in sales and transactions going through PayPal with One Touch.
To enable One Touch, merchants simply need to integrate with Braintree’s v.zero SDK. One 10 minute integration gives merchants access to One Touch, PayPal and it’s 157M active customers, Venmo — which this quarter enabled $700M in mobile commerce, Apple Pay and soon bitcoin.
