Link by Stripe is awesome for lots of reasons. Here's one of the most compelling:

In this post we'll go over that and even more exciting stats. We'll also talk about what Link by Stripe is. We'll show you how it works, and we'll help you get started with Link on your MemberPress site.
Let's get to it!
What is Link by Stripe?
Link is a payment feature available through the MemberPress Stripe Elements integration.
It gives your members and customers a fast, easy, and secure way to make 1-click payments on tens of thousands of sites.
Whether it's on your site or another Link-enabled site, the first time a user checks out through Link, the system saves and encrypts their info for future 1-click payments.
Link is a certified PCI Service Provider Level 1, so your customers' saved data is incredibly secure.
How Does Link Work?
Link allows your customers and members to use secure 1-click payments across the internet. To get set up, they just complete an easy, one-time checkout process.
Here's a breakdown of how this simple process works…
Step 1: Customer checks out and saves payment info
Your customer lands on a Link-supported site (yours or otherwise). When they checkout, they save their payment details and shipping address.
Step 2: One-click payments are enabled
For any future purchases, Link autofills that customer's saved payment info so they can check out with one click.
Step 3: Customer completes mobile verification going forward
Now your customer is all set. When they use Link on a new site or device, they’ll get a one-time code. This code will verify their identity and keep their info secure.
How Does Link Benefit Your Business?
Research proves that cart abandonment is a big, expensive problem.
For example, a study by the Baymard Institute showed that almost 70% of customers abandon their carts. The main cause of cart abandonment is friction in the buyer's journey.
This same study showed that close to 1 in 5 shoppers abandoned their carts due to a checkout process they described as “too long and complicated”.
Not only that, Baymard found that improving the checkout “flow and design” could save the industry $260 billion in lost orders.
The only way to recover those sales is to create a fast and friction-free buyer's journey.
With its 6-second checkout process, that's exactly what Link by Stripe does.
Better checkout flow and design
Link makes the buyer's journey as much as 9 times faster. And customers really appreciate it.
Studies show that the Link user experience is way better. So much better, in fact, that Link users make a purchase 4 times more often than non-Link users.
So far, businesses using Link have seen an increase in conversions of over 7%. It's an incredible, code-free way for small online businesses to build a full payment page and share the link with customers.
