SANTA MONICA, CA – August 13, 2007 International Checkout, Inc., the leading international logistics solution provider, today announced the implementation of an AJAX-driven single page checkout feature.
By consolidating its multiple page checkout system into one page, International Checkout (IC) expects to provide its fifty plus online partners (including Internet Retailer Top 500’s Beach Audio, Dollar Days, Stacks and Stacks, and Working Person’s Enterprises) a significant increase in conversions and customer satisfaction for their international orders.
Joining online powerhouses Yahoo, Microsoft, Google, MySpace, EBay, YouTube, Amazon, Wikipedia and the BBC; International Checkout has taken an important step forward by incorporating AJAX technology into its platform. AJAX technology allows web pages to be more responsive and facilitates new design and usability features such as mouse-over navigation, streaming content and interactive consumer reviews. Small amounts of data are exchanged with the server behind the scenes, enabling the user to make changes without the entire web page reloading. This results in an enhanced online shopping experience, consumer satisfaction and loyalty.
Studies show that over 50 percent of customers abandon their shopping carts before completing their online purchase, says International Checkout’s CEO, Saskia Strick. By streamlining the process with single page checkout, we anticipate a significant boost in conversions, which will translate to increased sales volume for all of our partners.
Through integration with IC’s solution, the online retailer transfers its international consumer’s shopping cart to IC to complete the checkout process. With the new AJAX single page checkout feature, international consumers will complete the entire checkout process right on the retailer’s IC landing page. International clientele will now experience a faster, easier level of performance which is expected to significantly reduce the rate of cart abandonment.
For over five years, International Checkout has been at the forefront of global e-commerce, providing a unique solution that includes a full range of logistic services. At the core of its solution is a technology platform that raises the existing standard for global logistics and unparalleled customer service. By partnering with IC, online retailers are able to tap in to the billions of dollars spent online by international consumers with none of the associated risks and difficulties. International Checkout handles all billing, shipping and customer service issues, while eliminating fraud risk and guaranteeing payment in U.S. funds.
