Smart Buttons for Express Checkout

Digital wallets are very effective in increasing sales. Checking out via Apple Pay/Amazon Pay/PayPal reduces the time spent on checkout because it eliminates the need to fill out the form.

A user clicks on their preferred express checkout button and logs in to pay.

No need to enter the address, email, phone number, etc. (everything gets auto-filled).

Here’s how it appears on the checkout page:
