Office Hours: Building payment solutions in your digital app
June 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm BST
Our Office Hours are a great way to get very specific advice on business challenges you face on a daily basis. This month, we’re welcoming Alex Mifsud, co-founder and CEO, Weavr.
Weavr is a cloud-based collaboration platform, and is ideal for digital makers, coders, product managers who need a payment solution for their digital application.
Customers today expect payment flows to be seamlessly integrated into the digital user experience. As the likes of Uber, Airbnd and Deliveroo have shown, payments are not just about taking a credit card payment at checkout – often, in addition to collecting payments, digital applications also need ways to hold funds, convert them, and transmit them on to suppliers, partners or other customers. That’s where the emerging field of ‘embedded payments’ comes in.
Weavr.io makes it easy for digital makers to design, build, integrate and launch embedded payment solutions for their digital business. It’s always been possible to create bespoke payment solutions but before Weavr.io this could take months and tens if not hundreds of thousands of pounds even before the first transaction could be processed. Weavr.io enables non-specialists to create powerful embedded payment solutions that digital businesses need in days, and to integrate them into their applications and take them live within weeks. By using automation and self-service tools, Weavr.io avoids the setup costs associated with bespoke payment solutions.
Weavr host and attend many events throughout the year and these play a big part in their community-driven approach. If you are looking at building a payment solution or at integrating payments within your digital application, they’d like to offer you a 1-2-1 clinic consultation to discuss your use case and to describe options available to you. During this session, you will learn about the key steps in building a payment solution and get early pointers for your specific circumstances. There is no expectation that you will use Weavr.io although we’d be delighted if we’re able to support you.
