Good news for Shopify merchants, there’s a new payments option available to power international transactions with the launch of Airwallex Online Payments App on Shopify.
The Airwallex Online Payments App is a payment gateway plugin that merchants can integrate on their online store to accept payments from their global customers.
The big advantage of Airwallex Online Payments is the ability to localise your checkout experience and increase conversion rates with local payment methods that suit your customers. The bonus is that you can hold the payment in the local currency pay out for free with Borderless Cards or Transfers without forced conversions or unnecessary fees.
This new app is offered through Airwallex’s payment acceptance solution that covers a wide range of payment methods. These payment methods include Visa, MasterCard and UnionPay bank cards, and 30+ other local payment methods across the Asia-Pacific and Europe, such as GrabPay in Southeast Asia, WeChat Pay in APAC, and Bancontact and Sofort in Europe.
We are excited that our online payment acceptance solution will now be available on Shopify, helping merchants create a seamless payment journey on their online store,. Our app is one of many offerings we have built to help merchants accept cross-border payments. In this case, by using an Airwallex account, merchants can gain secure access to a multitude of payment methods, both globally and locally, in a convenient, fast and affordable way possible.– Ravi Adusumilli, SVP of Partnerships, Airwallex
In addition to being able to accept payments globally, Airwallex merchants can also receive settlements in 7+ major currencies including USD, thus avoiding unnecessary currency conversions and related fees. Merchants are also able to accept payments directly into their Airwallex multi-currency wallets and pay out with Borderless Cards or Transfers.
