Costa Rica and Hamilton, Bermuda – July 15, 2021.  First Atlantic Commerce (FAC), an online payment solutions provider that specializes in the Caribbean and Central America, and Tilo, a fintech solution provider that enables the integration of ecommerce platforms, today announced their partnership and technical integration to enable merchants to accept online payments through the Wix platform.

Tilo has further developed their solution so that Wix platform users can now accept credit and debit card payments using FAC’s payment platform with settlement to local banks in the Caribbean and Central America.

Wix is a leading cloud-based development platform with 200 million users worldwide. Their powerful technology offers a complete website design solution that allows users to

create, manage, and grow an online presence.

The plugin to Wix is enabled for features such as local currency support, tokenization, 3DSecure and fraud protection solution, Kount, as well as multi-affiliates to enable financing or installments, which are common in Central America.

Henry Nanne, COO of Tilo, said: “We are very pleased to be working with FAC to provide Wix customers with quick and efficient payment processing access across Central America and the Caribbean.”
