Smooth Commerce Collaborates with Visa to Improve Mobile Registration Process

This week Smooth Commerce announced the launch of Register with Visa Checkout in the SmoothPay app, showcasing an innovation to enhance the mobile commerce experience by speeding up registration within apps.

The collaboration between Smooth Commerce and Visa marks the first integration of Visa’s Developer program in Canada.

“Today’s announcement showcases our commitment to deliver better customer experiences and value to our merchant network,” said Brian Deck, CEO, Smooth Commerce. “The Visa Developer Program allowed us to conceptualize use cases that didn’t previously exist.”

Register with Visa Checkout provides users with a streamlined signup process for mobile applications by leveraging their existing Visa Checkout profile—name, email address, payment information, and shipping address—to speed up registration

The Visa Developer Program offers access to a number of APIs, tools, and support to help build easier, faster and more secure ways to power commerce.

“Visa Developer is transforming the way we connect with fintechs, encouraging creativity, and expediting the deployment of new products and services,” said Derek Colfer, Head of Innovation and Digital Technology, Visa Canada. “We are pleased that Smooth Commerce is driving the first commercial implementation of Visa Developer in Canada—their innovative solution has broad application and is a great made-in-Canada success story.”
