Fintech Week - The state of the European checkouts: Increase sales with a better payments experience

Nine out of ten lost sales in Europe fail on the checkout page. In fact, 94% of the top 800 e-commerce websites across Europe make at least five basic checkout errors, adding unnecessary friction for customers.

We have invited leaders at Stripe, who will share the most common checkout errors and how to fix them based on a comprehensive review of Europe’s top websites.

Profile raising opportunities

We have formed a partnership with Tech Climbers, which we believe is a great opportunity for startups and scaleups within the community looking to raise their profile and receive recognition.

What is Tech Climbers?

Tech Climbers is an annual list which showcases the top performing, innovative product-led technology businesses in the region and aims to gather data to showcase Greater Manchester as a leading, global tech destination.

It's a list of 20-25 tech businesses performing well under three main headings:

💡 Innovation
🌍 Impact (social and environmental)
💵 Investment readiness

Each Tech Climbers campaign serves as a showcase of the exceptional achievements of these companies and their contribution to the UK's technological landscape.

If you'd like to learn more, nominate yourself or a business you know, you can do so on the Tech Returners website.
