Now let us look specifically at the updates for the month of June 2019.
GladePay Checkout Snippet is a small portion of code (to copy and paste on your website) for you to securely accept payment online. It is as simple as including a button with necessary options/attributes to suit your needs. Click on this link to get full details on the Checkout snippet and how it works. https://blog.gladepay.com/setup-your-online-payments-in-less-than-2-minutes/
GladePay brings to you the Smart Checkout. This is aimed at speeding your payment process. It automatically saves the details of your card, so if per eventually your payment fails, you don’t need to go through the stress of imputing your details again if you want to retry with that same card. Also if a payment fails, it immediately brings to you a list of other payment option to try. YES! It really is amazing.
Making payments using USSD on GladePay checkout has been made easier and a number of banks has been added. The costumer selects USSD at checkout and GladePay provides a list of banks.
A code is automatically generated once you select a bank. You simply dial the generated code and make payments. This quick code can only be used once and it expires immediately the transaction is completed. It also expires five minutes after the code is generated and no transaction is made, so this is as secure as it can be
