SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 9, 2017 — GoDaddy Inc. (NYSE: GDDY), the world’s largest cloud platform dedicated to small, independent ventures, announced two new integrations with Square that help small businesses thrive with online and offline selling and payment capabilities.
Increasingly, businesses need to operate both in person and online to succeed. By collaborating with Square, GoDaddy is making this an easy reality for tens of millions of people building small businesses. As a first step in the partnership, GoDaddy has integrated Square payments for e-commerce product sales and online appointment booking in GoCentral, GoDaddy’s mobile-optimized website builder. Integrating GoCentral Online Store and Square online payments enables small businesses to easily sell their products and services online and in person through a single Square account and GoDaddy website.
The second integration provides service-based businesses, such as personal trainers, hair stylists and photographers, the ability to book client appointments online, sync calendars using GoCentral, and get paid using Square. Payment transactions can be processed online, in-person or both without switching accounts.
“Teaming up with Square will simplify the path to success for a wide range of small businesses from clothing and apparel makers to fitness trainers,” said Greg Goldfarb, Vice President of Commerce Products at GoDaddy. “We’re solving everyday problems for millions of ventures that need to operate both online and offline so they can realize their potential with customers.”
“Increasingly, businesses need powerful, integrated tools to grow an omni-channel business,” said Pankaj Bengani, Square’s Partnerships Lead. “By working with GoDaddy we’re making it even easier for businesses to simplify their operations and manage all the ways they sell and get paid.”
