Forward-looking payment solutions for retailers

Very few things change as fast as retail. Except maybe how people expect to pay for the things they want. Research shows that UK retailers miss out on £11.6billion each year by not maintaining shopper-friendly in-store experiences[i]

From high street fashion and designer collections, to electricals, homeware, gifts and gadgets, shoppers increasingly want a fast and uncomplicated experience. This is critical, whether they're shopping in store, online or in app, or via a mix of channels. And regardless of the device they're using and how they want to pay. 

Payments in store, at home, or on the go, and the ability to choose whether to pay by card or digital wallet, all have to be convenient, hassle free and secure. Knowing which trends and innovations to invest in can be confusing in such a complex, fast-evolving landscape. Our experts can help make your brand the ‘must have’ time and time again by bringing you the latest payment trends and supporting you with how best to seamlessly integrate them into the shopper experience.

At Barclaycard, we work with some of the world's fastest-growing and most well-known retailers. They trust in our expertise and our technology to deliver reliable, secure and fast payment solutions that encourage customer loyalty, increase conversions and get ahead of the competition. Our retail partnerships are designed to drive business growth in line with ambitious, integrated commerce plans and ever-evolving customer demands.

[i] The figure of £11.6 billion (£11,631,844,762) was calculated by extrapolating the proportion of the 2,002 UK adults in the survey who have abandoned a purchase in-store in the last year (1,094) to the total UK population. This was then multiplied by the average amount of money UK adults would have spent on the purchases they abandoned in-store in the last month (£34.27), to provide an estimated overall monthly revenue opportunity figure. This was multiplied by 12 months to provide an annual figure. The total value of UK retail sales in 2016 was £358 billion (source: Retail Economics).
