BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2013) - Merchant Warehouse, a leading innovator of payment technologies and merchant account services, today announced a partnership with PrestaShop, the world's most popular open-source e-commerce solution that powers more than 130,000 active online stores worldwide. Through this partnership, PrestaShop and Merchant Warehouse offer customers the safest and most reliable solution to process online transactions.
Often driven by convenience, e-commerce is one of the primary methods of shopping for consumers. But from a merchant's perspective, it can be expensive to properly process payments from that "online store." The frequently overlooked reality is that many online payment solutions charge merchants with a gateway fee. With Merchant Warehouse, PrestaShop customers can securely process all forms of online payments -- including credit, debit, rewards, gift cards and even checks -- from any payment processing device with no hidden or additional fees.
"This partnership gives our users the ability to take advantage of the incredible savings and reliability that Merchant Warehouse offers," said Matt Serralta, Chief Operating Officer at PrestaShop.
"Merchant Warehouse has been dedicated to delivering innovative payment processing solutions to the market for more than 15 years," said Jim Fink, vice president, Merchant Warehouse. "Our work with PrestaShop is just the latest example of how the right payment solution can unlock significant opportunities for merchants to save money without sacrificing the security and reliability of the payment processing system."
Additionally, as part of this partnership, Merchant Warehouse is now integrated into the more than 300 native features offered in PrestaShop v1.5, allowing customers to satisfy all of their payment needs from one location. To get started, customers can simply create a free Merchant Warehouse account.
