SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Weebly, the global eCommerce service now empowering more than 40 million entrepreneurs worldwide, today announced a new integration with Square to bring localised, secure payments to Australian small business owners both online and offline. Entrepreneurs across Australia now have the ability to easily expand their reach to a digital and global customer online through their Weebly shop while managing all sales in Australian dollars on a single platform through Square.
Finding a simple solution that unites hardware, software, eCommerce, payments, email marketing, taxes and social media can be a daunting task for a solo entrepreneur launching their business. With Weebly’s easy to use, fully-stacked platform, Australian sellers now have access to a beautifully designed and customisable online store, one-click taxes, coupons, gift cards, abandoned cart recovery, integrated email marketing and social media amplification allowing them to take their products from a craft fair or brick and mortar shop in Australia to a global consumer almost overnight. With the Square integration sellers will also have a holistic view of all sales processed in store and online from one convenient location.
“We are seeing a spike in entrepreneurship on the Weebly platform across Australia. Site creators like the husband and wife team behind Hammered Leather Works in Perth or the surfer turned fashion designer in Newcastle who created her own line of trendsetting surfwear, Body of Water, are just a part of the next wave of entrepreneurship across the country,” said Troy Malone, Vice President of International for Weebly. “They are just a few of the hundreds already using Weebly and Square, but now with this new partnership their day to day sales will be both simplified and amplified by selling both in person and online simultaneously. With Weebly and Square’s new integration we feel confident that it has never been easier for Australians to start and grow a business online.”
“We’re proud to be extending Square’s partnership with Weebly to our Australian sellers, enabling them to build a beautiful online Weebly shopfront and accept payments online with Square. Together we're empowering businesses to sell products instore and online, with Square providing a fully integrated omnichannel platform that enables a single, holistic view across all sales,” said Ben Pfisterer, Square’s Australian Country Manager.
