Technology provider GoDaddy has unveiled a brand new payment solution that helps SMEs take digital payments via any device and by card, e-cheque or online transfer.
Called Get Paid, the system has partnered with Paypal, Dwolla, Stripe and other leading providers to support a broad range of e-commerce and mobile payments. Subscribers can also generate invoices and use the service to manage their costs, expenses and bills. The product aims to make business smoother for the 45% of small companies who report late payments as a major pain point, and users will also have access to 24-hour customer care to deal with any issues that may arise.
“We know that getting paid is always top of mind for our customers,” said Steven Aldrich, Senior Vice President of GoDaddy.
“When we heard from customers that they want to offer their clients more ways to pay, we set out to create a best-in-class solution to ensure easy access to all the tools they need to collect payments quickly and efficiently.”
