Webgold builds First Atlantic Commerce plugin for the Shopify shopping cart platform

Hamilton, Bermuda and St. James, Trinidad – October 5, 2017.  First Atlantic Commerce (FAC), a global online payment solutions provider and Webgold, a web and application development studio, today announced the availability of a new plugin to support online merchants using the Shopify platform.

The FAC Shopify plugin was developed by Webgold, and will allow merchants in the Caribbean and around the world to accept payments from their Shopify website via First Atlantic Commerce.

Shopify is the leading cloud-based, multi-channel commerce platform designed for small and medium-sized businesses. Merchants can use the software to design, set up, and manage their stores across multiple sales channels, and the platform provides merchants with a powerful back-office and a single view of their business. Shopify currently powers over 500,000 businesses in approximately 175 countries.

The new plugin extension, which was developed for FAC’s hosted payment page and supports 3DSecure™ authentication including Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode™, is available for purchase through Webgold’s website at

FAC works with merchant acquirers across the Caribbean, Central America, Bermuda, Europe, US and Mauritius. The Shopify plugin enables merchants to accept payments using FAC with direct settlement to the webstore’s merchant account in these jurisdictions.

“We have seen growing interest in Shopify over the years, but until now we were not able to support merchants on this platform.  Webgold developed the plugin to accommodate our mutual merchants and provide an easy way to connect to their Shopify website,” said SVP, BD & Marketing, Tricia Lines Hill. “This is a superb addition to the collection of shopping carts and plugins currently available to FAC merchants.”

In addition to the Shopify plugin, Webgold also offers WooCommerce and Magento plugins for accepting payments via First Atlantic Commerce.

“Shopify is a fantastic ecommerce solution, and we are excited to offer our new plugin to merchants looking to work with First Atlantic Commerce and Shopify,” said Webgold developer, Imanuel Gittens.
