Wix.com has been integrated with American mobile payments firm Square to offer Wix’s merchants and entrepreneurs a new option to accept online and in-person credit card payments in North America.
Wix, which has more than 97 million registered users, has said that the integration strengthens payment processing and allows both online and in-person payments, through mobile-based POS.
Any online Wix outlet will become a physical store immediately via the Wix App, which automatically and fully syncs the point of sale (POS) with the Wix online catalog and inventory.
Existing subscribers can add Square as an available payment option. Once subscribers complete a quick onboarding process through a secure website, they will be able to receive payments from major credit cards.
Wix is considering expanding the relationship across verticals, including Wix Bookings, over the coming months.
Wix vice president of ecommerce David Schwartz said: “We are constantly enhancing our ecommerce experience for our subscribers and their shoppers. We know that for small businesses both ecommerce and mobile functionality are crucial.
"Growth of our ecommerce and transaction-enabled subscriptions continues to exceed our overall subscriptions growth, highlighting our broad reach with small businesses.
“Today, Wix manages more than 305,000 ecommerce subscriptions globally. Now, by integrating the Wix App with the Square POS, users can accept payments in any location."
