Why Should you consider adding Google Pay and Apple Pay?

By Using Google Pay and Apple Pay customers don’t have to pull out their credit cards and fill out the long string of card digits and other information. Also until the payment is deducted and paid to the merchant’s site people have to travel the long pages funnel which is exhausting.

But with the help of the wallet system, when they click to choose the payment through Google Pay or Apple Pay they’re redirected to the payment page where all the information is prefilled, and customers only need to approve the payment.

Also, the brands never store credit card information hence it gives a trust factor to the consumers and enforces them to use their wallet services.

This is why as a seller you must leverage the benefits of using Google Pay and Apple Pay wallets on your MemberPress site. This way you can maximize the number of sales and reduce the abandonment.
