In the midst of a global pandemic, we’re seeing how social distancing has drastically shifted consumer behaviour. Maintaining a positive cash flow is key for any business. As a software provider, having the right technology to ensure your customers can accept a wide range of online payments has never been more important. As we all adjust to the new normal, your customers look to you ─ and the tech you provide ─ to support them through these unprecedented times.

With government and medical guidelines to combat the spread of Covid-19 still in force ─ from local and regional lockdowns to universal social distancing ─ new purchasing habits are emerging. Online shopping, which was already booming pre-Covid anyway, has gone into orbit since March. In fact, recent research shows that 74% of UK consumers say they will continue to favour online shopping even after restrictions have been lifted[1]. In addition, when shoppers do leave their homes, they prefer to use contactless and digital payments rather than cash. From paying for recurring expenses ─ like rent, utilities and childcare ─ to one-off payments like a dental check-up or ordering a takeaway, retailers know that offering a customer-centric payments experience is now more crucial than ever.

As a software provider, it is imperative that you are in a position to provide your customers with a full suite of online-payment options. And that’s where our Pay360 Evolve payments platform comes in.

Our new platform integrates directly into your software, so that you can roll out payments to all your customers. Evolve’s modern interface makes it ideal to support online payments. Multiple payment choices satisfy a diverse customer base, giving consumers the choice to pay in the most convenient way for them. From PayPal to Pay by Bank app, we’ve got it covered. What’s more, you have the peace of mind of knowing the process is completely secure. And you earn revenue when your customers get paid via your software ─ it’s a win-win-win situation.

An increasingly tech-savvy and discerning online-shopping population demands a superlative checkout and payments experience. Our Evolve platform is ahead of the curve in this regard, giving you the ability to meet your customers’ expectations – and in turn giving them the ability to deliver on their own customers’ expectations.

Evolve optimises the user experience: the less friction there is at the checkout, the less customers think about spending and the more likely they are to buy more. By removing complexity at the point of checkout, we make it as easy as possible for your customers to spend with you – and return again and again to continue spending. The greater the number of payment options you offer, the wider the audience your service will appeal to. Customers want flexibility in choosing how they pay - Evolve empowers you to offer this flexibility.

Not only will you be adding value to your customers by integrating and partnering with Pay360 Evolve, you’ll also gain financial reward too. For every pound transacted through the platform, you’ll earn revenue.
