- Add video to your page in new ways: Rather than a boring embed, consider spicing up your online video. Treepodia has a cool tool that converts static product images into a 15 –second video clip. Another cutting edge video tool is Vimation, which converts the last frame of a video into a buy page.
- Stay up on security: For credit card and ID validation, consider Jumio. Basically, a customer can snap a picture of their DL or CC using either a smart phone or a PC webcam. This makes for powerful fraud scrubbing, as it can be used to easily authenticate any transaction before shipping occurs. Or try Device Fingerprinting, which enables merchants to better authenticate their consumers and spot fraud easily, in real time.
- Find an online payment system that’s right for you: Whether you’re collecting cards in a retail setting, processing cards on a smartphone, or setting up an online shopping cart or gateway, you’ll want to select your online payment system carefully. For example, for those increasingly popular smart phone transactions, consider Kuapay.com.
