1 Introduction

At Ingenico ePayments, we are on a mission to enable anyone to quickly and easily make successful payments online, with our default payment pages. When your customers are at the narrowest part of the funnel, the right payment page design can help you drive sales and boost conversion up to 35%!

From July 2019 to January 2020, we conducted in-depth research with 40+ diverse users and considered UX best practices within the industry. We tested both successful and failed payment scenarios to learn how to improve conversion and the overall user experience of payment pages.

In this video, Marie shares her tips and insights on how to create an optimal payment page.

Read our guide below for the top eight best practices on how to set up a payment page that maximises conversion!
