Guide For Mobile App Payment Screens
Whether you have a mobile game or an app, there’s a high chance you have in-app purchases as your monetization method. Also there are many apps that need to be paid for before downloading.
How are you going to make your users comfortable with paying for your services? How are you going to make them feel secure when they leave their credit card info? These are important questions to have in mind when making successful mobile app payment screens.
In your own personal experience, how do you imagine a secure payment screen that will make you leave your credit card info? There are many people who are skeptical when paying for things online. Payment screens might look unprofessional and there’s always the possibility of fraud. This is why mobile app payment screens are important for the success of your business.
On top of that, users experience needs to be totally smooth, with no performance or usability glitches, or else they will abandon your app altogether.
According to outerboxdesign, 62% of smartphone users have made a purchase online using their mobile device in the last 6 months. With having that number in mind, we’ll guide you through the best mobile app payment screens that you can make.
Make Users Feel Secure
If you’re able to make deals with strong brands like PayPal or Shopify, you’re on the right track. They’re highly trusted by the majority of online shoppers and they are considered as the safest options for online payments. The best way you can introduce your users to PayPal or Shopify is to add their logos in your payments screens.
According to Statista, PayPal is the number one digital wallet, beating out Amazon, Starbucks, and Google Wallet with the usage rate of 79%.
If you’re able to add these services into your payment options, there’s a smaller chance of bad reviews coming your way. Especially if you follow the next tips we’re going to mention below.
No Bugs or Crashes
Imagine that you found a mobile game that you really like and it costs 1,99$. You’re typing in your credit card info, you’re clicking on the “purchase” button, but there’s an error with your payment. There’s nothing more annoying than error messages when you’re ready to buy something.
You need to make sure that there are no bugs or crashes when your users are ready to buy something. It must be an easy transaction that is short and simple. Also you need to make sure that your payment screens are loaded properly within a few seconds of your users being ready to pay. If users need to wait a couple of minutes for loading, there’s a high chance they’ll give up easily.
Update your app when necessary to eliminate error messages and to increase the speed of download. According to apmdigest, when an Android mobile app has an average daily crash rate of 0.25 percent crashes per day, Android users are enormously tolerant. As the daily crash rate doubles to 0.5 per day, well over a third of Android users will still not abandon the app. So having that number in mind should keep your app healthy.
Mobile App Payment Screens Are Designed For Users
You can lead your customers on the payment screen with a clear design. If you don’t have PayPal or Shopify connected to your payment options we would recommend that you use dashes between every four digits as seen on the credit card. Including the date the credit card expires and the security 3-digit number.
You can make sure that the proper keyboard pops up on the user’s screen for each necessary step (number pad for card numbers, scroll wheel picker for dates, and full keyboard for card owner names.) Also to save your users a few extra taps, make sure that these steps are automatic, so when a user types in their credit card number, the date and the month box should switch automatically.
If you see that users are having problem with paying for your services, we would recommend that you focus on In-App Event Tracking so you can see the problems they’re having.
We highly recommend that you spend enough time developing your mobile app payment screens since they’re really important for your business and your app in general. If you make your users feel safe and if you manage to keep that relationships secure, you’re going to have loyal users that will keep buying your services or products.
