Ingenico ePayments, the online and mobile commerce division of Ingenico Group, has announced general availability of Ingenico Connect and its developer hub.
Now, any online business has access to the same integration and checkout solutions that are already used by leading eCommerce companies such as the global video game marketplace G2A, to optimise the payment checkout experience for mobile or any other connected device. Ingenico Connect is available on Ingenico's GlobalCollect platform, where online businesses will also automatically benefit from the award-winning international coverage in terms of payment methods, multi-currency management and language on checkout.
As part of the announcement, the company also opened its new developer hub to all interested parties. This is a central repository of information, resources, and support that developers need to integrate with Ingenico Connect. This means any developer can sign up for free and immediately access the full range of services, such as a sandbox environment for easy testing and validation, full API referencing, a wide range of SDKs, test cases, best practices, FAQs and support.
Online businesses that wish to minimise their PCI compliance requirements can opt for the new, mobile-optimised Ingenico MyCheckout hosted payment pages. With the unique MyCheckout editor, they still retain control over the look and feel of these pages, even when they are hosted by Ingenico.
MyCheckout editor enables online businesses to test different versions of the checkout page to optimize conversion, and offer customers a localised experience with easy access to 50 different languages and 150 different payment products. Because Ingenico MyCheckout pages are hosted by Ingenico, online businesses are insulated from the sensitive consumer payment data that hackers want, and minimise their PCI compliance requirements accordingly.
"With Ingenico Connect, we have made integration with our platform easy, fast and secure for our clients. And with our mobile-first approach, they have all the tools and services they need to optimise the checkout experience and drive conversion." said Ludovic Houri, Vice President, Product at Ingenico ePayments. "Many online businesses struggle to convert traffic – particularly mobile traffic – into sales. That is why we designed Ingenico Connect, and it is very rewarding to see the results our clients are achieving with it."
Ingenico Connect is available to all online businesses integrating with Ingenico ePayments' GlobalCollect platform, and will be extended to Ingenico ePayments' Ogone platform next.
