Wix.com, a cloud-based website development platform, has joined forces with payment processing services provider GMO Epsilon (GMO-EP) to expand payment options for its customers in Japan.

With the tie-up, Wix Japan customers gain access to GMO-EP’s credit card payment and convenience store payment.

The alliance also enables Wix businesses in Japan to use Pay-easy that facilitates direct bank transfer.

Commenting on the partnership, GMO-EP president and CEO Yusuke Arai said: “We provide payment services so that Wix can provide businesses with local payment options such as credit card payment, convenience store payment, and Pay-easy.

“GMO-EP expects that this partnership will increase sales opportunities for Wix businesses, and contribute to the expansion of Japan’s e-commerce market.”

Wix country manager for Japan Hideaki Tsumita called the partnership “an important step”.
