With the Fall ’15 Release, Avangate is extending our platform to further enable frictionless selling. We’ve focused on simplifying and automating customer acquisition, increasing revenue uplift and conversions by driving recurring revenue worldwide.
You can use a collection of fine-tuned carts, available out of the box, leveraging optimized purchase funnels and payment methods. We’ve also extended Back-Up media options by adding support for USBs and introduced new self-service capabilities for shoppers.
Shoppers can now zip through the buying process with one-page checkout while using more of their preferred local payment methods, enjoying a better and simpler experience. The streamlined purchase funnel supports Alipay payments, with support for the Chinese Yuan also boosting conversion rate, as well as Sofort Banking, SEPA Direct Debit and Boleto Bancário.

In addition, we’ve added advanced self-service capabilities that gives both the shopper and customers more control. For customers, we’ve streamlined refund management, enabling them to limit refunds for orders older than 30 days. As far as shoppers are concerned, they can now remove credit card information from the Avangate system from their myAccount.

Building on the strong adoption and performance of our Revenue Recovery Tools to fight passive churn, we have extended the Account Updater service to include American Express credit cards in the United States and Visa/MasterCard in Europe.

This ensures higher authorization rates and offers continuity for services bought through Avangate to the shoppers who changed their card account details due to different reasons: expiration, lost/stolen card, smart chip EMV compliance, etc.
