Zoho Corporation, a global technology company, announced a right-to-left (RTL) Arabic website builder for its ecommerce platform, Zoho Commerce.

In addition, Zoho 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 the UAE and lowering the entry barrier for technology adoption,” said Hyther Nizam, President of Zoho MEA.

“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.”

“Our transnational localism approach has helped us expand organically in the region, as it is a strategy where our company growth is rooted in local business ecosystem development and community progress. Aside from increasing our on-ground presence with new offices and hiring local talent, our focus over the years has been to help local entrepreneurs through partnerships with government bodies and local business networks. We are also evolving our offerings to serve the needs of the local market,” he added.

Integration with Tap Payments

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

Ahmed Al Aradi, EVP of Business for Tap Payments said, “We are excited to announce this partnership with Zoho and enable a seamless online payment experience to their merchants and customers. Similar to Tap, Zoho is a leader in the ecosystem that can now offer their customers an easy access to the MENA payment ecosystem instantly without any integration requirements.”
