2Checkout is positively ecstatic to announce a new partnership with the United Federation of Planets that allows online retailers to accept Klingon currencies and provide automatic translation for any Klingon buyers on homeworld Qo’noS, as well as other planets including Krios Prime, Morska, Rura Penthe, and even the Qu’Vat colony.

This partnership concludes months of negotiations and testing with Klingon emissaries and merchants. Ambassador Worf, of Qo’NoS, was instrumental in providing 2Checkout with the knowledge and tools necessary to enhance the checkout experience for a new star system and population.

“It is our mission at 2Checkout to empower merchants with the capability to sell across any currency, language and payment method. Expanding across the universe to facilitate online commerce with Klingons was the logical next step,” said Tom Daily, CEO of 2Checkout, who personally spearheaded the project. “Along with our recent additions of Swedish and Slovenian, including the Klingon language enables a whole new set of sellers to engage a market segment with trillions of members. The decision was as easy aspagh wig, if I may say so.”’

Intergalactic merchants will be safe-guarded by the same anti-fraud protections that 2Checkout affords to domestic merchants, including photon-strength anti-fraud algorithms that can identify mirror universe imposters, Romulans, Borgs, and the occasional Tribble.

“My people needed a secure, smart, and easy way to trade with as many merchants in as many corners of the galaxy as possible,” said Ambassador Worf, who also serves as Lieutenant Commander on USS Enterprise-D. “Do you realize what a nightmare it is to find a safe, guaranteed seller to obtain d’k tahg and Levodian flu vaccines when your home planet suffers a shortage? 2Checkout’s payments technology makes the buying process a snap.”
