2Checkout and WooThemes have announced a partnership to offer 2Checkout’s online payment technology to WooCommerce users.
This integration will allow WooCommerce merchants to accept payments in 26 currencies; WooThemes’ WooCommerce plugin for WordPress powers nearly 18% of all e-commerce websites, with over 380,000 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 as a result there is a 20% increase in conversion rates over redirects to a standalone hosted payment form.
“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.
“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.”
