"In 2013 there was a change of eras, processing systems of payments of new generation with tools of 21 centuries appeared: javascript and mobile sdk, dunning management, marketplace and others. We waited when they appear in Russia, but for a year of it did not occur. Looking at it, it was necessary to create a new payment service", - Konstantin Yang tells CTO CloudPayments.

So there was a new payment form – Smart widget. It contains a minimum of fields for filling, automatically determines a payment system and emitting bank, carries out payment without readdressing and a redirect. It saves the payer's time. The user is tired to wait when the website of a processing center is loaded, and goes to other online store.

First it was difficult for young, unknown company to attract new clients. The Steak at Home online store became the first partner.

According to CEO CloudPayments of Dmitry Spiridonov, once it ordered a stake in Steak at Home, but with payment of the order there were problems. In such situations the buyer looks for other online store. However Dmitry called Steak at Home and told about such payment acceptance which holds clients.

So the Internet companies want to manage payments. But without payment service for this purpose they should receive the expensive safety certificate PCI DSS. Besides, it is difficult to configure it from technical aspect. The payment service solves this problem, acting as the coder. Payment data arrive on the website in the form of a token, and online stores configure a payment form at discretion and control transactions. Such technology is called checkout.

"First, payment process of a system looks as we want it. Secondly, checkout allows us to measure and remove analytics of the carried-out payments. We can understand in payment process what problems arise at the user", - Anton Bryantsev, CTO platforms for sale of tickets of Radario tells.

One more technology - payment directly from social networks.

"Now all people visiting our page in Facebook see at once the big and beautiful red button, having clicked which, can help children, without leaving social network and without passing to the website of fund. Of course, it is not the most important tool for fund raising, but we precisely know that most of people make donations, giving in to a momentary impulse. And here it is very important - to give this chance to the person instantly", - the coordinator of corporate projects of Rusfond Evgenia Lobacheva commented.

Thanks to technologies the young payment service of CloudPayments in September managed to reach self-sufficiency. The company moved to new, spacious office, broadened the state and left in steady growth.
