Today's case study focuses on a UK merchant named Optimize Press. Optimize Press is a popular WordPress plug-in that makes it easy to transform WordPress websites into lead-generation and sales-conversion platforms. What makes this UK-based company unique is that 80% of their customers are based in the U.S.

James Dyson, owner of OptimizePress, explained, "We have the peace of mind of knowing that we can rely on the Authorize.Net Payment Gateway for secure, reliable, payment processing in support of our expansion plans."

Today we are sharing the story of Wiggly Wigglers who operates a successful e-commerce store from the quaint, countryside town of Herefordshire. Wiggly Wigglers has found success in selling worms, goat socks and flowers throughout the UK with their tagline, "Bringing Country Living to Life."

Authorize.Net and Volusion have had a close partnership in the United States for over 10 years and share thousands of merchants across our respective platforms. As a leading provider of e-commerce software and services for small- to medium-sized organizations, I’m happy to let you know that we are expanding our partnership to include support throughout the UK and Europe. This expansion provides numerous benefits for current and future merchants including support for currency localization and the ability for merchants to access Authorize.Net services directly through Volusion in major global markets.

The thousands of merchants that we share have access to some of the industry’s leading e-commerce solutions, from Authorize.Net’s fraud and data tokenization tools to Volusion’s store builder and all-in-one e-commerce platform. The expansion of our partnership demonstrates that we are committed to working together to help our merchants achieve success and grow their business.

I asked Neil Patel, Head of Business Development for Volusion, for his thoughts on the partnership and he shared, “Authorize.Net has been a key partner of Volusion’s, and we are thrilled to be able to expand that partnership to our global customer base. We believe the end-to-end combination that Volusion and Authorize.Net offer creates a best-of-class solution for merchants in the U.S., UK and Europe.”
