The mobile application is able to store (securely) credit card details and users can pay small amount for some services with "one click" button (no confirmation).
There is a chance users click it unintentionally (like here).
The payment is available on the service page only with details like service duration and user's location (required for price calculation).
We came with UX improvement:
Said button is replaced by a "slider button" (full width of mobile screen in portrait mode) with the text "Slide to pay $1.23" and the user is required to slide it completely from left to right.
(( o ) Slide to pay 1.23$ )
The amount to be paid is small - mostly around 50c to few dollars. The UX is consistent for iOS, Android and (mobile) web client.
- Is there any other alternative to avoid unwanted one-click mistakes (except confirmation/popup)?
- Is there any patent covering "slide to pay" pattern? I am aware of slide-to-unlock only.
