Click to Pay - Competitor Profile

Click to Pay - Competitor Profile


Online payment solution Click to Pay was launched by Mastercard, Visa, American Express, and Discover in October 2019. The solution was initially known as Secure Remote Commerce and was developed based on EMV Secure Remote Commerce industry specifications. It was rebranded as Click to Pay in July 2020. The solution is administered by EMVCo, the international association of the six leading card scheme networks (American Express, Discover, JCB, Mastercard, UnionPay, and Visa).

The solution brings four major international card schemes under one banner, creating a huge network of prospective customers who can be served via a single acceptance brand. It provides online shoppers with a streamlined checkout experience, enabling users to make purchases via a single login. This eliminates manual entry of card, billing, and other personal details each time they place an order, which in turn helps reduce abandonment rates. Click to Pay is based on token technology, which enhances the security of transactions by turning card details into an encrypted code that is unique to each card.

Following the launch of Click to Pay, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express have gradually migrated their respective proprietary online checkout solutions Visa Checkout, Masterpass, and Amex Express Checkout to the new interoperable solution. Discover also enabled the new service for its customers in October 2020, starting with credit card holders in the US.

Initially launched in the US, the service has gradually been expanded to various markets globally, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Germany, Hong Kong (China SAR), India, Ireland, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, the UAE, and the UK.
