WALTHAM, MA – August 8, 2016 BlueSnap, a global payments technology company, announced today that Visa Checkout now available in its Powered Buy Platform to give merchants the frictionless checkout experience they need to reach global shoppers and solve checkout abandonment with higher payment conversions.


Visa Checkout works with any major credit or debit card across smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktops. It makes shopping online easier and more convenient for consumers by reducing the number of forms a shopper has to fill out and shortening the checkout process to just a few clicks.

Enrolled Visa Checkout customers completed 86% of transactions from the online shopping cart. Moreover, Visa Checkout customers have a 51 percent higher conversion rate when compared to customers using a merchant’s traditional online checkout.
