Global payments solution provider, Checkout.com, has launched a new feature called Intelligent Acceptance. The system uses an AI-powered optimization engine that can monitor billions of transactional data points, with early beta testing showing a 9.5% average improvement in checkout acceptance rates.

“We believe in abstracting complexity for businesses and empowering them to optimize their payments with ease. Machine learning enables us to […] leverage our expansive global transaction data to provide real-time insights. Meanwhile, an adaptive AI-powered payments engine constantly optimizes acceptance rates, unlocking more revenue, saving time, and offering greater cost controls,” says Meron Colbeci, Chief Product Officer at Checkout.com.

False declines — legitimate transactions mistaken for fraud attempts and subsequently blocked — are a $50.7 billion problem globally. Intelligent Acceptance can route card payments through the system much more smoothly, using continuous adaptation while leveraging Checkout.com’s global network and direct relationships with card acquirers to deliver incremental improvements.

Intelligent Acceptance can also drive down a merchant’s costs by dynamically routing transactions to the network with the lowest fees. Furthermore, if a transaction requires 3DS authentication, data can be automatically added to a payment request to ensure compliance.

The launch of Intelligent Acceptance comes as business leaders seek new ways to drive revenue and improve cost efficiencies to reconcile increased expenses. Research conducted by Checkout.com in partnership with Oxford Economics recently revealed that up to 25% of consumers abandoned an online purchase due to too much checkout friction, resulting in significant lost revenue for merchants.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities.
