Virgin America has incorporated Visa Checkout into its online payments protocol, allowing returning customers to make faster purchases.
After signing up once, Visa Checkout removes the need to enter card details during the online checkout process wherever consumers see the Visa Checkout button. Once enrolled, shoppers provide their username and password to complete the payment process.
“Virgin America’s busy passengers want to book their travel easily, wherever they are, on whatever device they choose,” said Sam Shrauger, senior vice president of Visa Digital Solutions. “Visa Checkout’s payment experience does exactly that, making it super simple to purchase from a mobile phone, tablet, or PC, so that travelers can spend more time planning their next trip, and less time checking out and paying.”
