New WooCommerce plugins enable Caribbean merchants to accept credit card payment on WordPress sites

Digital Agency, Quoviz, partners with Payment Gateway, First Atlantic Commerce, to launch 3 Plugins for the WordPress WooCommerce Shopping Cart Platform


Port of Spain, Trinidad and Hamilton, Bermuda. March 15, 2016 – Quoviz Consulting Ltd., along with First Atlantic Commerce (FAC), a global payment gateway that specializes in the Caribbean, today announced the development of three new plugins that support online payment services for merchants using WooCommerce.

The extensions allow online store owners to accept payment from their WordPress websites and have the funds directly deposited into their merchant accounts for the following countries and currencies: Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Cayman Islands, East Caribbean, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad. The plugins are available for purchase along with website integration services at

With close to 75 million websites now powered by WordPress, it is an accessible web platform for small businesses and entrepreneurs, many of whom rely on a global web presence for product sales and e-commerce. According to recent stats from BuiltWith, the WooCommerce platform currently powers roughly 30% of all online stores through its e-commerce WordPress plugins.

WooCommerce has quickly become the most popular e-commerce platform on the web, and with its seamless integration with WordPress, the two work together to allow even the smallest online merchants to compete in the global marketplace.

The FAC WooCommerce extensions are for any online businesses that use WooCommerce shopping carts. The plugin extension allows merchants to accept payments from their website and have the funds deposited directly into their merchant accounts at local banks.

“We are delighted that Quoviz has launched this suite of WooCommerce extensions to the market. This will give online stores all over the Caribbean and Latin America the technical ability to seamlessly process payments online via their WordPress website,” said Tricia Lines Hill, FAC’s SVP, Business Development and Marketing.

“With the growth of e-commerce in the Caribbean, there is greater demand for online payment options beyond services like Paypal, which have higher fees and hold merchant funds for greater lengths of time,” said Earl Rennie, managing director of Quoviz Consulting Ltd.

“We work with business leaders every day to better craft and deliver their unique brand messages and products via the web, mobile applications, social and new media. The user experience is just as important to us when developing tools to better facilitate direct payment options for online merchants. It’s important for store owners to have easy access to their funds, but the buying experience for their customers and ensuring a secure, seamless solution has to remain top of mind as well.”

The following three WooCommerce plugins are now available to allow maximum flexibility for WordPress store setup and payment processing:

  • 3DS Plugin
  • Non 3DS Plugin
  • FAC Hosted Payment Page Plugin
