Online merchants can accept Zip payments from their customers without having to install any software or hardware—all they need is an active internet connection. They can use Zip to sell anything online, whether from an e-commerce website or a store on Amazon or Etsy, and it’s easy to set up. Just create an account with Zip, enter your business information, and start accepting payments.
When a customer pays with Zip, they will be redirected to a secure page where they can enter their billing information into an online form and submit the payment request electronically through their browser window (instead of swiping their card). This ensures that all sensitive data is encrypted before being sent across the internet so nobody else can see it while in transit between the frontend server and backend merchant account.
Zip stores customer payment information securely on their phone, so they can pay for goods and services online in seconds. It can be used anywhere that accepts regular credit cards as well as PayPal (so basically everywhere). It can also be used on any device—whether it's a computer, tablet, or smartphone—and can store coupons, vouchers and loyalty cards so that customers have them ready to use when they’re needed!
Zip has no monthly fees for its basic service, and no minimum or maximum charges. Merchants can accept as little as $1 worth of transactions per day if they want. For a fee, Zip offers enhanced security features and custom designs.
