An online art access and printer company is tapping into foreign markets with WorldPay’s payment processing solution.
El Segundo, CA-based Brightcube, developer and provider of technology services for the professional art, proofing and photography markets, has signed a contract with Sterling, VA-based WorldPay to allow the company to expand its operations internationally. WorldPay provides a multi-currency e-commerce transaction processing service that processes international transactions in local currency for its clients. Brightcube is offering online print-on-demand services in Australia, Canada, Japan and the United Kingdom with WorldPay’s support.
Brightcube’s Brightcube Solution offers art retailers and galleries specially-designed printers and online access to secure servers that store artwork digitally. Retailers can then use the solution to print high quality art reproductions for their storefronts on photographic paper, canvas or other material in a variety of sizes. By accessing the art online and printing remotely, the retailers can save on shipping and inventory costs as well as increase their product selection.
WorldPay supports more than 14,000 online merchants in 15 countries, allowing retailers to tap into foreign markets. WorldPay’s service supports multiple languages and currencies, giving shoppers the option to buy outside their own country in their own currency.
