Xsolla Launches Headless Checkout for Advanced Game Customization

Xsolla, the video game commerce company, has introduced a new, innovative payment customisation feature called Headless Checkout. The functionality is meant to help developers provide a compliant and secure payment flow while also creating a completely branded and revenue-optimized purchasing experience for users.

What is Headless Checkout, and how does it work?

Headless Checkout is Xsolla’s latest iteration of its flagship product, Pay Station, and it is described as revolutionary checkout system, and it features a wide variety of integration options to cater to the needs of developers and enterprises of all sizes.

Pay Station provides developers with three different integration options to select from when creating custom checkout experiences. Hosted Checkout is a fast and simple option for game developers who need a readily available payment system.

There are a number of major customisation options available inside the Hosted Checkout platform, including typefaces, payment UI themes, and email formats for receipts, all of which are pre-configured and ready for use. Thanks to the flexibility of the Xsolla Publisher Account, Hosted Checkout is a quick and easy way to start making money from games.

Components Checkout enables developers looking for more control over the look and feel of their products to benefit from its ability to incorporate its user interface directly into the sites of their retail partners.

Advanced game customization

Xsolla says that Headless Checkout is the best option if you need a high degree of customization and control. It allows developers to easily incorporate the checkout process into their store interfaces, providing advanced layout management and a new level of customisation. To fully own and customise the payment experience, align with their identity, and incorporate everything into the design of their games, Headless Checkout offers a great solution for developers.

The benefits of Headless Checkout include:

  • Highly customizable payment experience. Headless Checkout is a user interface that is decoupled from the system’s core features and allows for extensive customization of the checkout procedure. It offers built-in support for 700+ payment methods, 130+ currencies, and 200+ regions, just like Hosted Checkout and Components Checkout.
  • Brand consistency. In order to give a uniform experience for gamers and highlight their own brand, developers can fully tailor the user interface to their games or gaming platforms.
  • Complete ownership and control. A/B testing can be done and managed independently by developers to discover which forms of payment processing result in the greatest uptick in conversions and revenue.
  • Global security and compliance. Xsolla makes it easy for developers by managing the intricacies of international payment processing, taxes, and regulatory compliance on behalf of its merchant clients.
  • Enhanced customer privacy and security. To protect customers’ private financial data, Headless Checkout provides pre-built UI components for handling payments.

Xsolla’s API calls provide all the components for making customised payment processes. When developers have more say over the UI and UX, everyone benefits. Having this kind of say over aspects like player engagement, loyalty, and conversion rates is crucial.
