BlueSnap are implementing their global payment gateway solution for Voxy, a New York-based company that leverages patent-pending technology to deliver personalized and adaptive language-learning courses online and via smartphones. Launched in 2010, Voxy has taught over 2.5 million English learners around the world.
“We are excited to be working with such innovative companies like Voxy,” said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap. “They have really tapped into the power of mobile and innovative technology to make language learning easy, effective and relevant. It’s great to help eLearning and edtech companies like this with the checkout and payments, especially in challenging markets like Brazil.”
BlueSnap provides online payment processing solutions and continues to enhance its global coverage with more than 180 countries, over 60 currencies and the ability to translate checkout pages into 28 different languages. Its payment processing network is driving growth for merchants around the globe.
“We needed a global payments provider that could consolidate our existing offering, improve the success rates and give us the reporting and support we were struggling to find,” said Manuel Morales, director of product management at Voxy. “BlueSnap’s global capabilities were a key requirement. We’ve already seen an improvement in our checkout process.”
