Testing new credit card input design (video)

credit card input designWe always strive to make our products as easy as possible for our customers to use. That even includes such seemingly mundane things like input of credit card details.

For a short while now we’ve been testing new input functionality and design for credit card payments. One of the new features is that when the customer types in the credit card number, it will automatically switch to the correct type of card.

Check out this video for a bit of the background and a quick demo of what the new design looks like.

We’re still A/B-testing this new design, and we want your feedback. You can leave a comment below, on Dribbble, or why not connect on Twitter. The design is still being refined, and will probably go through a few more iterations before replacing the old one.

The design is very nice, but unfortunately it's not very user friendly. For copy-pasting a CC-number, it simply does not work, making me have to manually split the long number into four parts and then type those four parts into each corresponding input field, increasing my chances of making a mistake from "none" to "quite likely indeed". If the form could be made so as to allow for pasting a full number into any of the four input fields, then it would be functional as well as pretty :)

 @AndriyTyurnikov It is used in production but it's being tested so it won't appear for everyone and in every transaction.
