Zoho announces Arabic e-commerce store builder, integration with Tap Payments

Zoho Corporation has announced a right-to-left (RTL) Arabic website builder for its e-commerce platform Zoho Commerce.

The technology company announced its integration with Tap Payments, a payment solutions provider in the MENA region, to empower businesses throughout their digital transformation journey.

“Zoho is committed to serving the local businesses in Bahrain and lowering the entry barrier for technology adoption,” Hyther Nizam, President of Zoho MEA, said.

“Businesses can set up their online stores in Arabic using Zoho Commerce, accept payments, and manage orders and shipping, all from a single platform. At the same time, the integration with Tap Payments will enable Zoho users to accept digital payments in a convenient, secure, and seamless way.”

In today’s economy, a digital presence is critical for businesses to survive and thrive, and we hope entrepreneurs here will take advantage of our technology to catapult their growth, he added.

Accepting online payments helps businesses improve cash flow by being paid sooner and reducing the costs involved in physical transactions, he added.

“With Zoho’s Tap Payments integration, businesses can accept multi-currency payments and extend the convenience of multiple local and global payment options— such as mada, Knet, BenefitPay, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express— to their customers.”

The integration will be available across various Zoho apps, including Zoho Books, VAT-compliant accounting software that offers e-invoicing provisions in line with local laws.

“We are excited to announce this partnership with Zoho and enable a seamless online payment experience to their merchants and customers,” Ahmed Al Aradi, EVP of Business for Tap Payments, said.
