Have you ever got into a situation where you were trying to purchase something online? And suddenly after checkout page, you were presented with a PayPal checkout user interface. Well, that happens to a lot of people. And by a lot I mean; PayPal is processing around $315.3 million in payments per day.

It’s an undeniable fact that people trust on PayPal as it has good customer protection policies. Hence without the second thought, most online buyers use PayPal with trust.

Although it might change now. Recently, Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal reported that major credit card companies like Visa, Discover, Mastercard and American Express are joining forces to create a universal checkout button.

according to the card networks, The AIM is to make online shopping simple, letting people finish with a few clicks — an experience pioneered by PayPal Holdings Inc. Yet some analysts say the coordinated effort may ratchet up competition between cards and PayPal, something long seen as a potential risk to that company’s meteoric growth.

“This is always kind of a looming threat to PayPal,” said Thomas McCrohan, an analyst at Mizuho Americas after the first announcements this week.

 

Visa and Mastercard will be heading this button project. This was announced during a big industry conference. Visa Checkout and Masterpass payment both will be combined to create a single button for checkout.

This was later joined by another big player in the industry American Express. Discover was also seen by side joining into the picture.

Basically, one button with all options hidden behind. So when you reach to a checkout page now. You just click on a button and choose to pay via the previously saved button. Simple and easy.

But currently, the project is still in its early age. The spokesperson mentioned that the visual design is not yet decided. But remember Visa and Masterpass will start enrolling new customers by the end of the year 2018 and will be fully published in mid-2019.

  7. Hi terrific blog! Does running a blog such as this require a large amount
    of work? I have virtually no knowledge of coding however I
    had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject however I just needed to ask.

    Cheers!

    info about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this
    site.

  10. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance”
    between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari.
    Exceptional Blog!

    just use internet for that purpose, and get the newest news.

  13. Hi everyone, it’s my first pay a quick visit at this web page, and post is really
    fruitful in favor of me, keep up posting these types of content.

  14. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  15. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after checking through some of the post I realized
    it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it
    and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

  16. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  17. Currently it seems like Movable Type is the best
    blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using
    on your blog?

  18. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a
    number of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

    I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into
    it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
