PrestaShop, the world’s leading open source eCommerce software powering over 185,000 active online merchants, has expanded its partnership with Authorize.Net, a premier payment provider to over 400,000 small to medium sized merchants globally. This collaboration now allows PrestaShop merchants with an Authorize.Net account to process payments in multiple currencies.
Since 2011, the partnership between PrestaShop and Authorize.Net has provided PrestaShop e-retailers with safe, secure and reliable payment processing. From major credit and debit cards to electronic checks and gift cards, online merchants can accept their customers’ preferred form of payment. PrestaShop merchants also benefit from Authorize.Net’s award-winning customer support and integrated fraud-prevention tools.
With Authorize.Net’s ability to process multiple currencies, PrestaShop merchants with operations in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, United States, Canada and across Europe can accept payments in local currencies. By providing its merchants with the ability to process transactions in their local currency, PrestaShop offers more choices for securely accepting payments in these new markets.
“We’re excited for the next chapter of this partnership. As pioneers in eCommerce, we strive to provide our merchants with the most powerful and innovative features to enable their success. Our continued partnership with Authorize.Net is part of our ongoing efforts to achieve that,” says Christopher Machin, Partner Manager at PrestaShop. “With multiple currency payment processing, we are breaking down the barriers of internationalization. As eCommerce trends shift towards globalization, this is an important tool for taking that crucial first step.”
