ATLANTA | PayLeap, Acculynk’s payment gateway, announced today an agreement with Ecwid Inc., the global e-commerce platform for 400.000 small businesses, to allow Ecwid’s retailers to easily accept payments online through the PayLeap gateway.
Ecwid ecommerce platform
Ecwid is used by over 400,000 retailers in 175 countries and is available directly and through a network of partners. Ecwid’s e-commerce application enables retailers to add a full-featured online store to any existing website in minutes. The multi-platform Ecwid is also Facebook’s most popular store builder app. Now online merchants using Ecwid's ecommerce platform can accept payments via PayLeap payment gateway. In addition to credit cards, PayLeap handles debit cards, checks, cash, ACH transactions and gift cards. Only PayLeap lets consumers use their debit card and PIN to pay online.
Payleap Payment Gateway and PaySecure
PayLeap offers a PCI-certified payment gateway solution that enables merchants to securely accept payments over the internet or any other payment application where the credit card is not physically present at the point of sale, such as mail/phone order, call centers and recurring billing. PayLeap is the only payment gateway to offer Acculynk’s Internet PIN debit to small and mid-market merchants. Acculynk’s patented PaySecure® online PIN debit benefits merchants by shifting the liability for chargebacks from the merchant to the card issuer. The patented PaySecure online PIN pad is the industry standard for accepting PIN debit transactions over the web.
Lower processing costs
“Small- and medium-sized merchants need payment flexibility, and PayLeap’s PIN-based debit card payment plan provides an additional, innovative option, while making the process quick and easy,” says Jim O’Hara, president of Ecwid, Inc. " Further, PayLeap gives our merchants peace of mind through enhanced security measures and lower processing costs.”
Merchants to accept PIN debit cards online
“We’re very excited to be working with Ecwid by providing unique value for Ecwid merchants,” said John Chandy, General Manager of PayLeap. “PayLeap allows merchants to accept US- and International-based PIN debit cards and ATM-only debit cards on their web sites in addition to traditional credit and debit cards. Merchants love PIN debit because it lowers their fraud risk and transaction processing costs and customers love the convenience and security of PIN debit online.”
Start taking payments online
After setting up an account and creating a transaction key within PayLeap, Ecwid merchants simply choose PayLeap for their Payment Processor settings to immediately start taking payments for their online stores. Many Ecwid merchants manage multiple stores across websites, mobile or social media sites, as the trend in distributed commerce (many storefronts across many venues) accelerates.
