Overstock.com Joins Roster Of 35 ECommerce Merchants That Accept V.me By Visa

Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) today announced that Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSTK) is the latest top eCommerce merchant to accept V.me by Visa payments. The discount retailer added V.me as a streamlined checkout option, making it simple to enroll in the digital wallet service and checkout using only a username and password.

Overstock.com joins other leading online merchants 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, LivingSocial, Newegg.com and 31 more since V.me’s launch. With annual online sales of more than one billion dollars, Overstock.com is among the top five most-visited mass merchandiser websites, selling a broad range of products including furniture, rugs, bedding, electronics, jewelry and cars.

“Overstock.com is a prime example of a top online merchant understanding the importance of a simple and secure checkout experience,” said Jennifer Schulz (@Jen_Schulz), global head of eCommerce, Visa Inc. “Delivering V.me to Overstock.com visitors means eliminating the time and hassle at checkout, time we’d all much rather spend shopping for great Overstock.com deals.”

Visa continues to make next-generation commerce a reality with V.me, partnering with 64 financial institutions including 13 of the top 25 U.S. banks. The free V.me wallet service is designed to simplify the eCommerce experience for merchants and consumers alike, whether shopping from a PC, laptop, or mobile device.

“V.me adds yet another quick, simple and safe method to purchase on Overstock.com,” said Dave Nielsen, co-president, Overstock.com. “Visa is a trusted and reliable brand that reinforces our commitment to our customers.”
