Online merchants using the WooCommerce platform now have a fast and easy way to integrate Digital River’s comprehensive checkout solution for simplifying global expansion efforts and driving revenue growth.

As of July 2, 2021 the Global Seller Services app for WooCommerce, from Digital River, is available on WordPress.org. This turnkey integration is the result of the combined efforts between rtCamp and Digital River to provide merchants with a fast and easy way to reach new markets, localize checkout experiences, and eliminate the complexities of selling internationally.

A complete checkout solution for WooCommerce

Beyond localizing the checkout experience for WooCommerce stores, Digital River is the only solution that solves complex tax, fraud and regulatory challenges on a global scale. We do this through our unique merchant of record model where we take on the responsibilities of calculating, filing, and remitting global taxes, and complying with the ever-changing landscape of global regulations such as GDPR and PSD2.

If you are a merchant using WooCommerce to manage your online store, here are five ways the Digital River app can help you with:

1. Global expansion, accelerated

As the merchant of record, Digital River simplifies the complexities of global expansion. We have 12 pre-established legal entities around the world, a deep global network of banks and payment partners, tax registrations, and a team of legal experts to shield your business from risk. All that infrastructure enables you to enter new markets in as little as six weeks

2. Revenue growth, supercharged

It’s not enough to deliver exceptional shopper experiences; you need frictionless and localized checkout experiences to optimize conversions. Digital River localizes your checkout with the currency and payment preferences your international customers expect. On average, Digital River clients see 8-15% higher authorization routes worldwide thanks to our local processing capabilities and intelligent transaction routing technology. We help you act local to optimize your global revenue.

3. Complexity, simplified

Staying on top of ever-changing tax and compliance requirements is one of the most complex and challenging aspects of selling directly to consumers on a global scale. With our merchant of record business model, we simplify operations by taking on all that complexity. That way, you can focus on what you do best. No need to scale up your existing operations as our experts have you covered from day one.

4. Risk profile, reduced

Compliance, security, and fraud are all major concerns for ecommerce managers and financial leaders alike. A survey taken in 2017 showed that businesses typically spend around 4% of revenue on compliance costs alone, with that number expected to rise to 10% by 2022. As internet penetration and online sales continue to rise worldwide, merchants need to be on top of increasingly sophisticated fraudsters and constantly changing regulations. With our merchant of record model, advanced fraud prevention technology, and 25+ years of ecommerce experience, Digital River shields your business from risk.

5. Multiple technologies, consolidated

If you’re looking to simplify your ecommerce operations and consolidate technologies, this is the perfect answer. It’s the only solution you need for mission-critical operations including payments, fraud, taxes, regulatory compliance and financial reconciliation. Instead of working with multiple vendors and experiencing the headaches and costs that they can cause, you get a single solution that comes pre-integrated with the industry’s top payment providers. Digital River clients experience an average of 20-30% reduction in operational costs.

As you look to grow and improve your direct channel around the world, ask yourself if you have the resources and processes in place to scale and meet the challenges of new markets.

With the Global Seller Services app for WooCommerce, you can remove traditional barriers to global expansion, simplify your operations, minimize risk, and grow revenue like never before.
