In July 2020, Pinwheel Pay, a licensed third-party payment provider, announced that it can now be integrated with Wix, the popular cloud-based web development company. 

This alliance will prove to be highly beneficial for merchants as they will be able to not only create stunning, customizable websites, but also collect payments within Wix’s platform. Pinwheel Pay’s “one-click” integration into the Wix system makes processing payments with striking capability. 

Why Use The Pinwheel Gateway?

The Pinwheel Gateway is feature-abundant. One of the most important aspects of the gateway is that it is an agnostic platform. This means that it is free from any ties to a specific platform or system. Therefore, it can be run across more than one platform. Since the Pinwheel Gateway is “platform agnostic”, it is not only compatible but also adaptable to the Wix platform.

In addition, it’s designed to suit the specific needs of high risk businesses that operate within regulated industries. Pinwheel prides itself on helping thousands of high-risk merchants to navigate the unique challenges that they are prone to face. Something that traditional processors and payment gateways are not always keen on tackling. 

The Pinwheel Gateway also includes some advanced components including 3DS functionality, transaction routing to multiple payment providers, multi-currency processing and conversion, and recurring payments. 

Pinwheel offers even more features and benefits, making it an obvious choice:

  • Approvals are typically given within 24 to 48 hours
  • Rates are as low as 1% *(certain high risk industries will have distinct pricing schedules)
  • High Risk Account Specialists are available for assistance
  • There is no application or setup fee
  • There are no annual fees and no gimmicks
  • Chargeback Protection Services
