WooThemes, makers of the WooCommerce plugin for WordPress (which is used by upwards of 18 percent of all e-commerce websites today - 381,000 active line stores worldwide), announced a partnership with 2Checkout to offer the online payment technology to its users.
WooCommerce users will be able tointegrate 2Checkout’s payment form, which overlays on the merchant’s website without redirecting visitors to a separate page. 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.
With this integration, according to 2Checkout and WooThemes, the majority of a merchant’s PCI 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.
“2Checkout has been a pivotal product for WooCommerce 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.
