Aug 17, 2021 | By PYMNTS.com
GoDaddy, which works as an internet domain registrar, is planning to roll out features for pay links and virtual terminal features, a press release says.
The features will allow smaller businesses to accept online payments for an internet store.
With "Pay Links," the company will be able to let small businesses make links that lead to secure checkout pages, which will then be able to be shared with customers via email, social media and text, or through generated QR codes.
And through "Virtual Terminal," companies can turn their devices with web browsers into payment terminals, allowing for companies to take payments over the phone.
“At GoDaddy we understand small businesses need solutions that are flexible and particularly when it comes to commerce, one size rarely fits all,” said Kasturi Mudulodu, vice president of product. “Our newest GoDaddy Payments offerings, Pay Links and Virtual Terminal, give small businesses that live and thrive offline the ability to transact online and remotely over the phone as well. GoDaddy is committed to improving the day-to-day operations of our customers, now enabling businesses both on and offline to sell everywhere and make their customers’ experiences as seamless as possible.”
GoDaddy also recently rolled out a new feature for eCommerce customers to more easily handle transactions directly on their business platforms, making it more efficient for companies to get paid and manage orders.
The solution is called GoDaddy Payments and can be utilized by customers of GoDaddy Websites and Marketing as well as Managed WordPress WooCommerce. It can be used to help out with managing orders, billing, refunds and payments, and it works with all the major cards like Mastercard, Visa and American Express. While there's a charge put on each transaction, funds reportedly arrive in the accounts the next day.
