The New New Look, Part 3

In The New New Look, Part 1, I detailed the changes we made to the BeamAndGo Store page. In Part 2, I described the Details page that appears after a user clicks on the Buy button.

In this post, I will show you all the payment options that are available to our users on the BeamAndGo Checkout page.

PayPal, Credit Cards, dragonpay, BeamAndGo Direct

PayPay

Millions of people around the world use PayPal for one simple reason: it’s simple. Just an email and password will get you through checkout before you can reach for your wallet.

The New New Look, Part 2

In The New New Look, Part 1, I described the changes we made to the BeamAndGo products page in order for our users to get all the product information at a glance. In Part 2, I will show you guys what happens after a user clicks on the Buy button.

We worked hard to streamline our screens so that a user only needs to enter the minimum amount of information necessary to complete a transaction. As users of BeamAndGo ourselves, we wanted less pages and less fields. And as a result, this is what we came up with …

It's all in the details

First, we created a section that displays all the item details related to the order.

It's all in the details

Then, we made it easier for the user to select a recipient for the order.

Recipient

And lastly, we provided an estimate on when the recipient will receive the SMS with the digital gift certificate information.

Delivery estimate

The SMS will contain the following information: the sender’s name (you!), the value of the gift certificate, the gift certificate code, the merchant and the locations where the gift certificate can be redeemed.

In many instances, the SMS will be sent instantaneously and the recipient can redeem the digital gift certificate immediately.

In The New New Look, Part 3, I will explain the different payment options we have added to BeamAndGo to make it easier and more economical for our users to provide for their families.

The New New Look, Part 1

Everyday we ask BeamAndGo.com users how can we make it better for them to take care of their families in the Philippines. Because we are a new to the scene, our users wanted more clarity about our products and our services. So that’s what we did.

Last week we unveiled a new look that provided our users with the essential product information and features that will help them make better decisions as they provide for their families.

We are calling this new look BeamAndGo Store.

The first page has been enhanced to show all the products available on BeamAndGo …  

Landing Page

Bread Crumb – In the upper left hand corner, we left a bread crumb trail: Store > Details > Checkout. The bread crumb enables our users to know how many more steps are in the purchase process.

View by Merchant – In the upper right hand corner, a drop down list displays a list of BeamAndGo merchants. When a user selects a merchant, the system will display all the products offered by the specified merchant.

Next, we modified the display of our product item to provide comprehensive at-a-glance information …

Product Item Display

And lastly, we provided one click access for a user to make a purchase or make a request …

Request or Buy

In The New New Look, part 2, I will explain how we made it easier for our users to select their recipients, apply discount codes, and understand the delivery options.
