Commenting on the announcement, Jonathan Razi, chief product officer at Stax, and founder and former CEO of CardX stated that the companies have collaborated since the early days of CardX, and by integrating Mastercard Click to Pay into Lightbox, they aim to provide a win-win value proposition for merchants and consumers alike.

The press release further highlights that together with other EMVCo member brands, Mastercard launched Click to Pay in the US in 2019 to provide a more simplified and secure digital payment experience for ecommerce consumers. Being an enhanced alternative to guest checkout, Click to Pay simplifies how consumers access their enrolled card when purchasing from ecommerce merchants or platforms integrated with the solution.

Furthermore, it leverages intelligent recognition, enabling customers with expedited access to their cards and associated information with no requirement to remember or enter a password, which helps reduce cart abandonment. Furthermore, Click to Pay stores card details in a secure manner through tokenisation, thus leading to higher approval rates.

Following the November 2021 announcement that it was acquired by Stax, CardX has been supporting the company in its goal of eliminating transactional friction between businesses and the customers they serve. As per the announcement information, throughout 2023, Stax is set to focus on further scaling the organisation and expanding its operations to better serve over 30,000 businesses across the region.
