More Traffic Doesn't Necessarily Mean More Sales

With more people shopping online, you might think checkout conversion rates would improve. However, global conversion rates fell from 2.37% in the third quarter of 2019 to 2.17% in the third quarter of 2020, which means that more shoppers may not necessarily mean more sales.

If you're not offering the right payment method for the countries or regions you sell in, there's a good chance your customers will bounce before finalizing the purchase. In fact, almost half of all shoppers surveyed in the US and UK said they would abandon a purchase at checkout if their preferred way to pay isn't accepted. That means lower checkout conversions and, ultimately, less revenue.

In most of the world, the payment methods that the payment industry has historically classified as "alternative" are the norm - 77% of all online purchases in 2021 were made using a local payment method, such as bank transfer, wallet or BNPL.

This presentation makes a compelling case for the acceptance of alternative payment methods by any merchant, especially those interesting in expansion into new markets.

Visa CE 3.0 Deep Dive: Leveraging the New Rules to Fight First Party Misuse

Join this webinar to hear a detailed discussion on leveraging the updated Visa compelling evidence rules (Visa CE 3.0) to successfully combat first-party misuse. This new rule comes into effect mid-April, helping to tackle one of the largest problems in ecommerce. MRC is facilitating an educational presentation from Visa experts, where they will address top questions from merchants on Visa CE 3.0. 

With this evolution, merchants can now provide issuers with historical transaction details to confirm the legitimacy of a transaction and block illegitimate fraud claims by the consumer. This webinar will cover how merchants can leverage this rule change in both the pre-dispute path (deflecting the dispute prior to formal processing) and post-dispute path (providing the qualified CE3.0 data in pre-arbitration) for Visa transactions. 

Webinar highlights:

· Updates on the Visa CE 3.0 rule change since its initial announcement 

· Explore the various use cases of the new compelling evidence rules 

· The nuances of compelling evidence both pre- and post-dispute 

· Discussion on what’s next for compelling evidence rules from Visa

This webinar is an opportunity for merchants to clarify any questions they have on pre- and post-dispute paths and how this change impacts the wider payments ecosystem. Merchants can submit questions for Visa at registration or during the live event, and the session will be available on-demand for MRC members.
