Reduce cart abandonment by having real, on-site credit card processing. Most ecommerce veterans know that cart conversion rates are higher when the shopper provides credit card information without leaving the website.
For example, let’s say you are using PayPal Website Payments Standard. The shopper must leave your cart to go to PayPal.com in order to pay for the order. A higher percentage of these shoppers will abandon the cart before paying, as compared to paying within your checkout.
With that in mind, your next step is to search for a merchant credit card processor. Like other pages on this website, we’ve spent a significant amount of time reviewing the available choices. We recommend Authorize.net’s credit card payment gateway and Worldpay’s merchant credit card processing account.
After that, you need to install the software to your cart to enable the shopper to pay right on your webstore. On the X-Cart platform, the two best choices are X-Payments and BCSE’s Authorize.net DPM module.
