Square, Inc. Key Developments

Wix.com Ltd. Integrates with Square to Make Shopping Easier for Businesses and Customers

Wix.com Ltd. announced its integration with Square to give Wix merchants and entrepreneurs in North America a new way to accept online and in-person credit card payments. Wix's Square integration improves payment processing and allows both online and in-person payments, via mobile device based POS. Any online Wix Store can become a physical store instantly via the Wix App, which automatically and fully syncs the point of sale (POS) with the Wix online catalog and inventory. Wix is aiming to expand the relationship across verticals, including Wix Bookings, over the coming months. How it Works: Setup to Sale: The Square integration builds on many of the most popular and powerful features of Wix Stores: a stunning website, easily created using Wix's drag and drop Editor and powerful, easy to setup ecommerce functionality such as order management, promotional tools, customizable tax and shipping rules, and 24/7 support. Now Wix merchants have even more POS options with the addition of Square. New users can create a stunning Wix Store and, with a few clicks, manage the store and its catalog on the Wix App with the ability to accept payments online or in-person with Square. Existing subscribers can add Square as an available payment option. Once subscribers complete a quick onboarding process via a secure website, the subscriber will be able to receive payments from major credit cards. Since the Wix App is an extension of the online store, everything is synced, and merchants can manage their catalog from the Wix mobile app. The app allows them to receive orders both online and in-person by accepting payments through a mobile device with Wix.
