Seller Community,

After making great strides on our mission of making buying and selling frictionless for everyone, we have made the difficult decision to close our doors. With that, we regret to share that we must discontinue Fast Checkout as a payment method for our sellers.

I will be forever grateful to those who shared our vision for improving the system of buying online and who refused to settle for the status quo. We created an incredible global community of sellers over the past 19 months – and we are deeply grateful that you took the leap of faith and joined Fast in this journey. We are grateful for the vision you shared with us about how we can improve and modernize commerce.

Sometimes trailblazers don’t make it all the way to the mountain top. But even in those situations, they pave a way that all others will follow. Fast has done that with bringing one-click and headless checkout into the mainstream. Buying online has been forever changed by the incredible team at Fast. The dedication, brilliance and spirit of this remarkable team is unparalleled and will forever be the legacy of Fast.

We aim to make this uninstalling/offboarding process as seamless as possible. A member of the Fast support team will be in touch to help remove Fast Checkout.

We will permanently discontinue service of Fast Checkout on April 15, 2022

With gratitude – Domm Holland
