Webinar: Streamlining Web Payments

Tuesday, June 21, 2016 
12:00pm - 1:00pm CT
This webinar is for Members and Sponsors. 

For many users, Web purchases can be a frustrating experience, especially on mobile devices. Poor user experiences such as typing information again and again or following complex steps to payment lead all too often to error and high rates of cart abandonment.

W3C has begun to work on a standard API to help streamline checkout. This API will enable superior user experiences and enable merchants to take advantage of more secure payment methods to reduce liability and protect sensitive user information.

In this Webinar the panelists will discuss the goals of this standards effort, the emerging architecture for the payment request API, and the anticipated impact on merchants and other e-Commerce players. They will also introduce other payment-related activities and discussions at W3C that will affect merchants and other stakeholders in the global payment ecosystem.
