(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – GoDaddy, the world’s largest technology provider dedicated to small businesses, announced a partnership with Stripe, a leading online payments provider. The goal of this partnership is to make it easier for small businesses to start selling online.
Accepting credit cards online has been a difficult process for small businesses, often requiring many steps, long waiting periods and difficult credit approvals to get started.
GoDaddy Online Store makes it simple for any small business to get started and sell online, and the partnership with Stripe eliminates the friction in one of the most complex steps in ecommerce. With Stripe, GoDaddy small businesses can receive instant credit approval, and begin accepting credit card payments and accessing funds faster than ever before. Launching this fall, GoDaddy Online Store with Stripe will be a global ecommerce solution for small businesses, available to customers in the UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada and the US.
“GoDaddy’s Online Store simplifies so many aspects of setting up a business. The ability to accept credit card payments online has helped my business thrive and grow immensely,” said Snap-Bibs.com Founder Katie Lewis. “I know my customers appreciate how easy GoDaddy and Stripe make the eCommerce experience as much as I do.”
“We want to ensure we solve the critical pain points e-commerce merchants face when they build their online stores. Setting up payments is one of the important ones to solve and frankly, not well done by anyone,” said GoDaddy Head of Product, Presence and Commerce Sandeep Grover. “To that end, Stripe is a terrific option for our SMB customers looking to easily and effectively sell products and accept payments on their site. We’re pleased to count them as a partner.”
“You shouldn’t have to be a large enterprise to have a sophisticated payment infrastructure,” said Stripe President and Co-Founder John Collison. “We’re excited to be working with GoDaddy to deliver an elegant and simple way for SMBs to accept payments instantly.”
