First Atlantic Commerce merchants gain easy access to leading ecommerce platform Magento

Authorized FAC Technology Solution Partner, Tropical Web Shop, develops extension for Magento Community Edition


Hamilton, Bermuda & Ottawa, Canada. January 14, 2013 — First Atlantic Commerce (FAC), a global online payment solutions provider, today announced its technology partner, Tropical Web Shop, has developed an extension for the leading eCommerce platform, Magento, enabling merchants to gain simple and easy access to the software.

Magento is a feature-rich, open-source, enterprise-class platform that offers merchants a high degree of flexibility and control over the user experience, catalog, content and functionality of their online store. The Magento eCommerce platform serves more than 150,000 merchants worldwide and is supported by a global ecosystem of solution partners and third-party developers.  In August 2011, Magento was acquired by eBay Inc., and is now a division of X.commerce, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY).

Magento Community Edition (Magento CE) is open source software and can be downloaded from the Magento site.  Tropical Web Shop has created an extension to the software, which adds the credit card payment functionality for the overall eCommerce system. The e-Commerce First Atlantic Commerce Payment Gateway Extension for Magento CE is now available direct from Tropical Web Shop, saving merchants time required to customize their integration and configure it to FAC’s payment gateway.

 Designed for Magento CE 1.6x and over, verified and tested by First Atlantic Commerce, the extension offers merchants: 

  • Easy installation through Magento Connect
  • Real-time Processing using 3-D Secure (pending merchant account approval with acquiring bank)
  • PCI Compliant Gateway
  • Gateway Setup Support
