NEW YORK, October 27th, 2021 – VTEX (NYSE: VTEX) – the enterprise digital commerce platform for premier brands and retailers, the leader in accelerating commerce transformation in Latin America and now expanding globally – is announcing today the next phase of its partnership with Stripe – a global technology company building economic infrastructure for the internet – with the aim of helping brands and retailers to offer the most popular payment methods to their consumers regardless of their operating areas. The integration between both companies is now available for all VTEX customers today as a plug-and-play solution.
With this partnership, VTEX global customers can process online payments with Stripe directly through a VTEX Commerce Platform plug-in. The integration will work in all countries where both companies operate, including the United States, Brazil, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, Romania, Bulgaria and Singapore, supporting payments processing in 135+ different currencies.
As a result of this partnership, VTEX merchants can also accept Google Pay, which is a novelty in the platform, along with key wallets such as Apple Pay and more traditional options, like credit and debit cards. Additionally, local payment methods such as OXXO in Mexico and boleto in Brazil are a mere checkout configuration away. VTEX customers will also be able to leverage Stripe’s products including its anti-fraud tool Stripe Radar, which helps detect and block fraud for any type of business using machine learning that trains on data across millions of global companies.
As the retail environment is seeing a boost of payment methods, the collaboration between VTEX and Stripe enables global and local businesses alike to match market trends and increase conversion rates through a diverse range of payment options, meant to meet everyone’s preferences.
