15 May, London 2015 – Judo Payments, Europe’s only mobile-first payments platform, today announces its partnership with social treating app Givvit, following a competitive pitch.
The Givvit app enables consumers to purchase everyday gifts, such as chocolates, flowers and drinks, from high street brands – including M&S, Caffè Nero, Pizza Express and cinema chain Picturehouse – and digitally send them through mobile devices. Recipients redeem their treat by presenting their digital voucher in-store.
Whether a customer abandons the checkout process within a mobile app or website largely depends on the usability of the checkout design. We’ve identify top 9 principles that should be kept in mind while you design a mobile checkout experience:
Deciding to make a purchase is already a big enough commitment to your brand, registering an account before purchasing seems like an even bigger commitment. Which is why forced account registration at the start of the checkout process causes 23% of checkout abandonment.
It is recommended for account registration to be an option after payments. By then, you would have collected plenty of information of the user, which you can use to pre-fill the registration form, and all the user have to do is just tap on a ‘confirm’ button to register. It is also worth letting users know what the benefits of registering are, giving them more reasons to take that extra step.
If you don’t know by now (and I hope you do), the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), updated its Data Security Standards (DSS) to version 3.0 earlier this year in January.
To release some minor adjustments and clarifications, they have now issued a follow up version 3.1. The biggest thing that will affect all merchants in this standard update is that Secure Socket Layer (SSL) can no longer be used as a security control after June 30, 2016.

Judo Payments (“Judo”, www.judopay.com), Europe’s only mobile-first payments platform, today announces it has successfully closed an additional £6M in funding to drive growth in the rapidly expanding mobile commerce sector. The first institutional funding round was led by financial technology venture capital firm Route 66 Ventures.
With almost 100% of retail commerce growth now coming from mobile channels, businesses need to put more consideration into how to fully optimise their customer’s journey on the mobile screen. Part of the process of developing a successful mobile app involves careful planning of the User Interface (UI), besides just making your app look good. Sure, it doesn’t hurt to be good looking, but it’s more about designing for the ease of use for your customers and in return high conversion for you as a business. Let’s go through the user journey of an app, and look at some best practices for designing a UI that customers love and that bring you high conversion.
Mobile Payments. Confusing term, isn’t it? With the rise of mobile as a force of change, we see consumers shifting to a mobile-first behaviour at an unprecedented speed. In recent years we’ve seen many innovative new mobile payments options sprouting in this field. So let’s take a look at the many options under mobile payments, and how they each differ from one another.
If you haven’t heard, we’re running a restaurant giveaway this month – a free branded app with pre-loaded features that are beneficial to any restaurant, big or small, plus one year of free card processing up to £100,000. (If you’re interested, click here to find out more.) An app is the best possible tool for any restaurant to distill and retain its customers’ loyalty, but of course it is not the be all and end all of a mobile strategy. Which is why we are sharing this post with you, to give you some idea of how you as a restaurant owner can leverage mobile as a revenue channel.
Most restaurants now have a website and social media presence. Those channels have become the basic standard methods for promoting a restaurant. But if you really want to stand out from the crowd and foster customer loyalty, a mobile app is the answer. The article below briefly explains why you need an app and how to reap the full benefit of having one:
Today marks the release of our revamped website and an overhaul to attend to the needs to our ever growing customer base. We’ve been busy making sure we are able to communicate what we do in a clear, succinct way. We are different to any other payments provider, here’s how:
