FastSpring paves the way as the first and only Merchant of Record to offer a WordPress plugin

FastSpring, a global leader in ecommerce management for digital businesses, today announced the release of its WordPress plugin. FastSpring is the first and only Merchant of Record to offer a WordPress plugin that will allow an online business to take control of its ecommerce experience and scale globally.

According to data from web technology survey firm W3Techs, WordPress powers more than 30 percent of websites around the world, and is often used by businesses such as TED, Spotify and TechCrunch as their CMS platform of choice. While WordPress is not an online store, it is a CMS powerhouse and offers many ways to set up an ecommerce business for all sorts of markets and digital commerce.

“Businesses selling digital commerce and services on their WordPress-powered sites face the challenge of piecemealing multiple plugins and point solutions to manage their ecommerce experience,” says Brian Deignan, VP of Sales at FastSpring. “These competing tools and solutions limit the potential growth of a business, and require a sizable investment in time, money, and resources to build and maintain. We’re excited to offer a faster and more efficient way for our customers to sell through WordPress and nurture their online business all in one place.”

As a Merchant of Record, FastSpring is responsible for processing payments, distributing funds from the “marketplace buyer” to the “marketplace seller,” and abiding by global taxation requirements.

Now with the WordPress plugin, what used to take days, weeks, or even months of developer and IT resources can now be done within a few hours from the business owner or marketing manager directly, and with minimal support. Additional benefits to FastSpring's WordPress plugin include:

  • Faster Go-To-Market: Start selling software, SaaS, or digital commerce on WordPress in hours with minimal resources.
  • Seamless UX: Build branded shopping cart experiences directly on your WordPress site. No redirects or third party hosted ecommerce pages.
  • Real-Time Optimizations: Update products and pricing and create discounts in your FastSpring Store. Your WordPress site will update in real-time, and all transactions processed through your WordPress site are reflected in the FastSpring platform.
