Global real-time payments platform, Volt has launched its secure, PayTo based, one-click payment solution for retail customers in Australia. In addition to simplifying the payments experience for customers and eliminating credit card surcharges, this online digital payment solution allows retailers to receive payments instantly.

Volt’s new one-click payment feature integrates with PayTo, the instant digital payment system from the New Payments Platform that enables businesses to initiate real-time payments from customers’ bank accounts.

Once a merchant has integrated the one-click payment at checkout, customers select PayTo as the preferred payment method, enter their PayID, and then set a secure PIN and optional payment limit for that specific merchant. Once the agreement is approved in the user’s banking app, information will be securely saved, enabling instant one-click payments with that merchant in the future. 

Volt co-founder and chief growth officer, Jordan Lawrence said, “Australian merchants have high expectations and have shown strong commitment to innovation. Since our expansion into Australia, Volt’s team has been focused on finding new ways to add value to this dynamic market. We wanted to build on our ability to combine beautiful payment experiences with the power of real-time payment technology.

“Volt’s one-click payments are an example of a solution that benefits all parties: offering Australian consumers access to smoother, easier, faster payments at checkout, while sophisticated Australian merchants can enjoy faster settlement times whilst eliminating risk and fraud.”
