“Leading retailers in the U.S. rely on FiftyOne to help them enter new markets abroad; one of the keys to success is localizing the experience. Offering shoppers familiar payment options with prices in the local currency improves the user experience and builds trust among consumers,”  FiftyOne CEO Michael DeSimone said in a statement.

With the additional support, FiftyOne can now reach over 100 countries and 60 currencies. The full list of currencies added to the platform includes: Brazilian Real, Swiss Franc, Czech Koruna, Danish Krone, Hong Kong Dollar, Hungarian Forint, Israeli Shekel, Japanese Yen, Mexican Peso, Norwegian Krone, New Zealand Dollar, Philippine Peso, Polish Zloty, Swedish Krona, Singapore Dollar, Thai Baht, Turkish Lira, and Taiwan Dollar.
