Synchrony Invests in Skipify to Transform Digital Commerce

Synchrony, a leading consumer financial services company, announced a strategic investment in Skipify – a digital payments company that enables merchants to offer an instant, one-tap checkout solution.  In addition to the strategic investment made through Synchrony Ventures, Synchrony will partner with Skipify on commercializing Skipify’s capabilities across Synchrony’s expansive merchant network and financial ecosystem.

Merchants using Skipify’s solutions have seen a 30 percent increase in sales conversions, according to the company.
