GoDaddy launches GoDaddy Payments for small businesses

GoDaddy Inc. has announced the launch of GoDaddy Payments, enabling GoDaddy Websites + Marketing and Managed WordPress WooCommerce customers to handle all of their commerce transactions directly through GoDaddy.

GoDaddy Payments provides a fast and secure way for GoDaddy’s ecommerce customers to get paid, according to a news release. Once set up, customers can begin using GoDaddy Payments for processing their customers’ transactions in minutes. Payments are fully secure, and funds are deposited into users’ bank accounts the next business day.

The new system is integrated with Websites + Marketing and GoDaddy-powered Managed WordPress WooCommerce sites, so customers can now manage all orders, payments and refunds, alongside every other aspect of their online business, from a single dashboard, without logging into multiple accounts to handle payments, refunds and billing. GoDaddy Payments accepts all major credit and debit cards for a low transaction fee, and there are no monthly minimums or hidden fees.

GoDaddy Payments is part of GoDaddy’s expanding commerce platform, which will include in-person payment capabilities for seamless online and offline shopping experiences later this year. The system was built using the technology and teams acquired from Poynt in December.

“GoDaddy is hyper focused on empowering our customers to sell everywhere with a single solution in a seamlessly intuitive experience,” said GoDaddy president of commerce Osama Bedier. “GoDaddy Payments represents a major step towards centralizing every tool and service a business needs to successfully sell online. Customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to accelerating our efforts.”
