2Checkout and WooThemes Partner to Enable Merchants Around the World to Accept Payments from Anyone, Anywhere
COLUMBUS, Ohio & CAPE TOWN, South Africa --(Business Wire)--
a leading online payment provider to merchants worldwide, and WooThemes,
maker of the WooCommerce plugin for WordPress, today announced a
partnership to offer 2Checkout's online payment technology to
WooCommerce users. The integration allows WooCommerce merchants in
nearly 200 countries to accept payments in 26 currencies, as well as
increases conversion rates over a standard hosted form.
WooThemes' WooCommerce plugin for WordPress powers nearly 18 percent of
all e-commerce websites, with 381,000 active online stores worldwide.
WooCommerce users can easily integrate 2Checkout's payment form, which
overlays on the merchant's website without redirecting visitors to a
separate page and results in as much as a 20 percent increase in
conversion rates over redirects to a standalone hosted payment form.
2Checkout's payment form maintains the branded look and feel of the
merchant's website design, and adapts the checkout page responsively for
smartphones and tablets for universal accessibility.
"2Checkout has been a pivotal product for WooComerce merchants in
enabling customers to check out in a variety of currencies. 2Checkout
has changed the payments landscape for sellers across the globe. We are
truly excited to present our customer base with the latest integration
for 2Checkout built by the ninjas at WooThemes," said head of business
development at WooThemes Joel Bronkowski.
"WooThemes' WooCommerce is the premier WordPress plugin for e-commerce,
known for its ease-of-implementation and simplicity," said Kevin
Gallagher, Senior Vice President of Business Development at 2Checkout.
"We're thrilled to partner with one of the largest e-commerce platforms
to reach merchants in nearly every country in the world."
With this integration, the majority of a merchant's PCI (News - Alert) compliance
burden is alleviated, as cardholder data is never held on the merchant's
servers. Advanced fraud protection is included at no additional cost to
minimize merchant losses by identifying fraudulent transactions by
analyzing over 300 risk variables. Through November 30, 2014, WooThemes
customers who sign up and use 2Checkout for payment processing will get
a credit for the full amount of the WooThemes plugin. Details on the
partnership and credit can be found here.
