At Recurly, our goal is to help our clients professionally manage their subscription billing. That means we want you to look your best. To that end, we are thrilled to announce the latest revision of our Hosted Payment Page. The latest version incorporates dozens of enhancements aimed at giving you more flexibility and improving the customer conversion funnel. First, let's compare the old (left) and the new (right):
Payment Page Improvements
You'll notice the new version is much more visually appealing. Some of the other improvements include:
Client-side form validation for required fields and credit card validity
Improved settings for Google Analytics to ensure your cookies are read/set properly
Optionally display more fields: company/organization name, phone number, and VAT number
Optionally hide email address if email is set on URL parameters or otherwise known for the account code
Additional credit card type logos for international merchant accounts.
All of these revisions are designed to make the page more flexible for your needs and make it easier for your customers to subscribe to your service.
As we deployed this new page template, we wanted to respect the effort some of our merchants already put into customizing their CSS for the hosted pages. We versioned the page so you may choose between the original payment page (using your existing CSS) or the new version. If you have customized any of your CSS, the page will default to the previous version. To upgrade or customize the fields, log into your Recurly account, click the Configuration tab at the top, then select Hosted Payment Pages. The settings can be different for your test site and your production site, so feel free to experiment on your test site before updating your settings on the production site.
What would you like to customize?
At the moment, the new version does not allow you to customize the CSS. If there are pieces of the new page that you would like to customize, but can't today, please let us know. We would love to hear your feedback on the new page. We are especially interested in hearing from you if the new page helps improve your conversion rates.
