If you would like your customers to enjoy an easier checkout process the Sage Pay Token system is for you.

What is the token system – an overview?

The token system allows your customers to register their card on your website to use for future purchases.
This will allow your customer to simply log into your website, select the card they would like to use for the purchase and proceed to the checkout pages.

If your eCommerce business attracts repeat visitors, it helps to have a payment system that is accessible, robust, secure and hassle-free. Nothing puts off a potential repeat customer than knowing that they have to trawl through lots of pages, forms and buttons to click. The less painful the process, the more orders completed.

The Sage Pay Token system offers a secure and fast payment method that takes care of you as a business owner having the responsibility to be PCI compliant and also allows the safe storage of customer card details in the form of a secure token generated and stored by Sage Pay. When a customer places an order with a new card, they will have the option to store this payment method securely and simply choose this card with a checkbox on their next order, making the checkout process very smooth and efficient. A customer can store upto 5 tokens per account, so that’s 5 cards and all sensitive information is stored on Sage Pay servers, as opposed to your own.

Using Sage Pay as your payment gateway, customers are able to register an account on your website as normal, but once they are ready to make a repeat order, they can log in, proceed to checkout, select the card they would like to pay with, and quickly and efficiently complete their order with just a single click.

This simple approach to making purchases on any Sage Pay-registered website will not only make online shopping easier – relieving your customer of manually entering the usual details for the umpteenth time – and increase your chances of repeat orders, but it will also result in an increase in conversion rates, with statistics showing an impressive 40% rise. There’s also been an incredible average of £6,010.43 saved by businesses who use the Sage Pay Token system, off of their PCI regulation costs!

If you have a Magento website, Sagepay Tokens are also accessible in the admin so you can also help your customer place an order with their token or place a new order that has come in from a different channel with their payment method.
