Popular Singapore e-commerce sites face checkout woes
Many of Singapore’s most visited e-commerce websites have error-ridden checkouts that frustrate customers and cost businesses revenue, finds a *survey from financial infrastructure platform Stripe.
Why it matters

- 99% of APAC e-commerce sites make five or more basic errors at the checkout.
- Online shoppers expect the checkout process to be fast and they leave when it’s not.
- More than half (57%) of Singaporean shoppers say they will abandon a purchase if checkout takes more than three minutes.

“In light of economic uncertainty, businesses that are ignoring their checkout experiences are subjecting themselves to unnecessary revenue loss. There are easy fixes to these issues, especially with technology like Stripe Checkout, which addresses these common errors seamlessly, ensuring no money is left on the table because of an abandoned cart” – Paul Harapin, head of Asia Pacific & Japan, Stripe.
