Visa Checkout – The Easier Way to Pay Online PLUS GIVEAWAY!

visa checkout cottonon sale

Let’s not beat around the bush, eh girls? Most of us love to shop – and shopping online and having everything delivered to your door, is the best, isn’t it? I even get my groceries online these days!

The only downside, (besides buying the occasional pair of jeans that don’t quite fit, and having to return them) is the checkout process. Am I right? It’s a ‘first-world-problem’ I know, but I can’t help but find the whole form-filling, full name…address…blah blah blah, so tedious and time consuming. Particularly, when I am shopping online in my PJ’s, curled up on the couch, and get to the payment option and realise that I have left my purse (and hence my credit card details) in my handbag in the car…again!

I know you know what I mean. We’ve all been there, right?

As I told you all last week though, (link to previous post) I recently enrolled in the new Visa Checkout service, and it has completely streamlined my online shopping experience. If you love to shop online but loathe the lengthy checkout process, I think you’ll love it too.

Talking of things you’ll love…check out this bargain I found at Cotton On. 2 tops for $30! I may have bought several colours and a couple with stripes to restock my winter wardrobe! I do love me some batwing sleeves!


Let me explain, and you’ll see why Visa Checkout has made my online shopping experience such a breeze.

The new Visa Checkout service, allows you to pay online for some of your favourite sites with just a few clicks, and eliminates the need to enter your shipping details or personal card details – so no more late night hunts for your wallet!

So how does it work?

Well, signing up for Visa Checkout is easy. You can either visit a participating bank, a merchant checkout page or directly at Personally, I used the direct Visa Checkout page, and found the process of linking my credit card details (you can use any Visa debit, credit or prepaid card or even other branded cards) quick and easy. This enabled me to assign a username and password to be used whenever I used the Visa Checkout option on participating websites.

Time taken: approximately 5 minutes.

Paying for items in my shopping cart is now as simple as clicking the Visa Checkout payment button, entering my username and password and hitting return, and can be used whether I am shopping from my desktop computer, my tablet or my mobile on the go.

Time taken: approximately 60 seconds.

(No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
