Create a custom checkout with Mollie
Picture this scene: you've just found the perfect pair of shoes after spending almost an hour scouring the internet. They’re just what you were looking for and are being sold on a reassuringly professional-looking webshop. What's more, they're on sale for a very tempting price.
Everything looks good, so although your finger lingers over the checkout button momentarily, you decide you can't pass this deal up. You click the button and get ready to check out.
Suddenly, you're on a page that looks nothing like the webshop you were on just a moment ago: there's no logo, the colours are wrong. Something seems off.
What do you do? What do most people do? Shut down that checkout page as quickly as possible. Keep the cash safe and sound, and look for shoes another day.
Unfortunately, this happens all the time.
Why? Because trust is vital in ecommerce – especially when it comes to payments.
In fact, our data shows that payment security concerns are the second-biggest reason for checkout cart abandonment, with 54% of shoppers saying it causes them to drop out of a sale.
And by sending a customer to a payment page that looks different from the site they've just been browsing, you can easily lose their trust.
This is where the Mollie Checkout can help. It allows you to create a personalised, superior payments experience that's built to increase conversion and delight your customers. Let’s explore what it can offer you.
The benefits of customising your checkout with Mollie:
- You create a consistent brand experience
Shoppers get to know your brand style as they browse your site. So ensuring that your payment screen feels like an extension of your brand isn't just important – it's essential.
- You create trust
The checkout is often the last touchpoint a shopper has with your brand. So imagine how they feel when you suddenly send them to a page that looks unfamiliar, even suspicious. It's like turning down a dark alley and worrying about what’s going to happen next.
By branding your checkout page, these problems disappear. Your customers feel secure about their route; they recognise what's around them and feel confident to take their next steps. You've earned their trust and left them feeling positive about their journey with you.
- You increase conversion
So, what does that trust and positivity mean for your business? Happier customers, of course. But as importantly, more sales for you.
By branding your checkout, you help your customers feel safe and secure throughout their shopping experience. And that means they're more likely to complete their payment at the end of it.
So, a customisable checkout is a surefire way to increase your conversion.
