OHIO | Payment Service Provider 2Checkout announced that Shopify has integrated 2Checkout global payments option into its platform. Shopify directly integrates with 2Checkout, allowing Shopify customers to sell in 196 countries. This new partnership guarantees an unprecedented level of access for Shopify merchants looking to tap into new global markets.
Localized Payment Page
“2Checkout delivers a local buying experience that scales globally for merchants and customers alike," said Louis Kearns, director of payments at Shopify. "Shopify’s 100,000+ merchants from around the world can now enable 2Checkout's secure, responsive, localized payments page to maximize checkout conversions in hundreds of markets.”
2Checkout highlighted within Shopify
2Checkout’s payments service will be highlighted within Shopify’s platform in countries where their own payment solution, ‘Shopify Payments’ is not available. This will make 2Checkout one of the only available payments option in many emerging markets. At the same time, Shopify’s platform will be available to existing 2Checkout customers, providing an industry-leading commerce system on which to build their online stores.
Number One Cart Request
“Shopify is the number one cart request that we get here at 2Checkout, so this partnership is a win for both parties,” said Kevin Gallagher, SVP of business development at 2Checkout. “With 2Checkout providing the payments, it is literally just one integration to reach the world.”
