We’re really pleased to announce that Spiffy Stores now supports the Stripe payment gateway for accepting credit card payments in your online store.
Stripe is super easy to set up, and has some of the lowest fees, bringing the whole process of automating credit card payments within reach of small businesses… without the giant setup fees imposed by many banks. Their fees are just 2.9% of the transaction plus a 30¢ transaction fee.
Stripe has no setup fees, no monthly fees, no minimum charges, no validation fees, and no card storage fees. There’s also no charge for failed payments.
What’s the catch you ask? None except that it’s only currently available to ecommerce businesses based in the US. We’re eagerly awaiting the release of their worldwide service though, and will let you know as soon as it’s available.
Spiffy Stores is proud to announce that we now support the Westpac PayWay API service. If you already have a PayWay account or are planning on getting one, you can now use the PayWay payment gateway to seamlessly accept payments in your online store.
PayWay is a fully integrated merchant solution and payment gateway from Westpac, which means you only have to pay one organisation for both your merchant solution and your gateway solution to accept credit cards in your ecommerce website.
Existing Spiffy Stores store owners can set up the PayWay gateway in the “Checkout & payment” section of their store preferences. Unlike some other providers, we don’t charge a fee for an “add-on” to enable you to use PayWay… it’s available for use with no additional charges from us!
For more information about the Payway gateway, please visit https://www.payway.com.au/core/AboutView
As with all payment gateway options, we recommend you shop around to get the best deal for your business. A full list of all of the payment gateways that can be used with Spiffy Stores is available in our knowledge base.
With the recent expansion of Spiffy Stores into New Zealand, we’re actively looking out for new ways to add support for our New Zealand store owners… so we’re pleased to announce the addition of a new payment gateway from Flo2Cash today.
We’re obviously used to writing code to interact with a wide variety of credit card payment gateways around the world, but we have to admit that adding the support for the Flo2Cash Web2Pay web service had to be one of the fastest turnaround times that we’ve ever experienced. The whole process from start to end took just over 24 hours, and included some very helpful support from the Flo2Cash people!
In coming weeks, we’re expecting to be adding some other features specfically for New Zealand, so watch out.
Of course, this new gateway is in addition to our NZ support for PayPal Website Payments Standard, PayPal Express, and the ability to accept credit card payments manually using your own credit card processing facilities.
If any of our New Zealand customers have any feature requests that are specific to New Zealand e-commerce stores, please let us know!
