This past weekend Gate2Shop gave a talk at the Flash GAMM! Expo in Kyiv. The topic was “The Art of Conversion” and the presentation was done by Gate2Shop COO Yuval Ziv. The presentation was well-attended and there were some nice questions following it.
The art of conversion is a crucial topic that is of interest to any business trying to sell software online or sell games online – and this is pretty much everybody who attended that show.
The essence of the presentation is that the better your conversion rate is, the better your ROI is going to be. Sometimes, to achieve that it only takes some very minute tweaks of one’s payment page and significant leaps in that metric are going to be observed. It takes both technical and business savvy to achieve that.
We have had case studies that show up to 20% increase when only a small banner is moved or replaced. As you can see from the presentation below, real life cases were discussed, showing how Gate2Shop has helped them improve their business. Most of the attendees were either flash developers or business people who had their own successful flash design or web design studios.
Overall it was a very good show with a number of productive meetings. We were delighted to discuss payments in general and flash payments in particular with both potential clients and partners.
Flash GAMM is a professional gathering, where detailed lectures are held by some of the key professionals in the games industry. Participants can have a chance to communicate closely with potential partners and sit at seminars covering various topics including flash design, flash payments, game design, monetization, legal barriers and many more. This year edition will take place in Kyiv, Ukraine on December, 4-5.
Yuval Ziv, the COO at Gate2Shop, will be there to discuss and shed light on conversion strategies and more specifically how to turn players into payers. The lecture will include specific case studies and examples on how online merchants can achieve higher conversion, what the most important things that a merchant must know are and what the ones that have to be avoided are. In addition to the conversion itself, flash payments and how to apply them will also be covered.
Mr. Yuval Ziv, the COO of Gate2Shop, has given an interview for the Flash & Flex Developers Magazine.
He discusses how to monetize better games by implementing the flash payment solution.
The whole magazine is quite interesting and one can learn a great deal from it.

Here is a short presentation about how the flash payment solution can be implemented in a game.
Today’s gaming world revolves around the use and technology of the developers designing games to work with the flash technology that is available and holds the end-users interests. The key to turning the average gamer into a repetitive gamer is maintaining their interest and avoiding any interruption of their game play. This is the focus point behind G2S’s PayInAFlash. By maintaining the in-game play the PayInAFlash billing model allows for the payment to be made without interrupting the game.
Flash technology with its wide acceptance and real time activities is the standard for a long time to come. The PayInAFlash billing model can be easily integrated in any game, social media, video streaming or software (flash application), allowing the end users to quickly and conveniently pay for their requested service. This payment solution was designed to minimize the distraction to the end-user, while maintaining the highest security standards and meeting all of the requirements set by the international PCI Data Security Standard.
