Offering a frictionless checkout experience is essential for digital transaction conversion rates. Today, we’re excited to announce new payment method improvements available on the FastSpring platform: 

  • Apple Pay
  • Pix
  • Preferred Payment Method

Apple Pay: Seamless Transactions Within the Apple Ecosystem

As Apple Pay adoption continues to grow, incorporating Apple Pay into payment options becomes an essential part of your digital strategy. Whether you’re a game developer looking to capture more of the Apple market – and take advantage of the new rules under the Digital Markets Act – or if you’ve been selling on Mac for years, this integration offers a quicker, and more familiar, checkout process for Apple users.

Key Benefits of Apple Pay:

  • Open Revenue Channels: With availability on iOS, Safari, Mac, or Chrome for iOS users have the ability to open new revenue streams that were previously unavailable.
  • User-Friendly Payments: Not only is Apple Pay more familiar with buyers in the Apple ecosystem, but making a purchase is as easy as using biometric authorization to authenticate and the transaction can complete.
  • Accelerate Market Penetration: Access the more than 78% of users on iPhone that leverage Apple Pay, in addition to the other segments of the market.

Pix: Expand Your Reach in Brazil

Pix, the most popular payment method in Brazil, has revolutionized how transactions are conducted in the region. With more than 153 million individual users, Pix allows users to tap into a new segment of the global market while avoiding cross-border fees.

Key Benefits of Pix:

  • Market Access: Double your customer acquisition with access to the largest payment method in Brazil.
  • Enhanced Localization: Provide a trusted and familiar payment method to users in Brazil and show commitment to the Latin American market.

Preferred Payment Method: Tailor Your Checkout Experience

Preferred Payment Method empowers sellers to customize the payment experience, presenting options for payment methods that resonate with customers. This approach not only streamlines the checkout process, but also boosts transaction completion rates by reducing the likelihood of cart abandonment because of a missing payment method:
