SumUp and PrestaShop partner to empower businesses selling online

01.02.22 - London: Global financial technology company SumUp and PrestaShop - the leading e-commerce platform in Europe and Latin America - announce a partnership that will give hundreds of thousands of merchants on the PrestaShop platform access to SumUp’s extensive product suite of tailor-made business tools thanks to PrestaShop’s SumUp Payment Module. 

A payment solution for all businesses 

The use of contactless, nomadic and connected payment is becoming more and more renowned among merchants. The key to this growing success is the simplicity of the service, wide compatibility with all current features and technologies and an affordable price. Indeed, for craftsmen, small traders, liberal professionals or self-employed workers, accepting bank cards can be complex and expensive. 

Thanks to SumUp, merchants can now adopt a payment solution without a hitch. SumUp payment solutions allow you to offer payments by credit card without fixed costs and with a commission reduced to a minimum. SumUp supports more than 3.5 million merchants worldwide in over 30 markets. 

As a key partner in the digitalisation of commerce, PrestaShop aims to become the reference commerce platform for the growth of businesses. With nearly 300,000 sites already using its software across the globe, PrestaShop is the leading open-source ecommerce solution in Europe and Latin America. Partnering with SumUp in Europe, PrestaShop will pursue its mission of empowering European SMEs and allowing merchants to easily deploy their business on a larger scale.

James Henry, Head of Sales and Partnerships at SumUp said: “By partnering with PrestaShop, we will continue to expand our support for digital transformation of small businesses, by ensuring their products and services are also available online for their customers. Our partnership will enable merchants with a seamless and secure payment experience for all major credit and debit cards, an important tool in enabling small business success in today's environment."
