ShopKeep, the top-rated tablet-to-cloud payments and point-of-sale platform chosen by over 25,000 independent retailers and restaurants, has partnered with trusted credit card processing company, Gravity Payments, to offer ShopKeep’s award-winning POS software with Gravity’s transparent payment processing service. Gravity is the first third-party partner to directly bundle and resell ShopKeep’s POS platform as part of ShopKeep’s new wholesale initiative. The program is currently live, with Gravity Payments actively selling and onboarding new customers onto the ShopKeep app.
ShopKeep has adapted its platform to fully support wholesale distribution of its software, including a new partner portal that enables third party sales agents to easily board new customers onto the ShopKeep platform as a value-add offering to its own services. The program is a move to compete in the ever-evolving and highly competitive POS market, where companies are battling to ‘own the countertop’ of small and independent merchants. Through this partnership, Gravity Payments robust team of non-commission sales representatives will now be able to offer their 20,000 small business customers ShopKeep’s top-rated point of sale software to help those businesses efficiently manage operations and point of sale for their business.
“More than ever, what we are seeing is the world of payment processing and point of sale technology converging. Traditional payment processors are realizing that great technology is a true point of differentiation and that they need to couple this technology with payment processing to gain and maintain control of the merchant’s countertop,” says ShopKeep CEO, Michael DeSimone. “At ShopKeep we are prepared to equip top-tier payments providers with world-class software to help them accomplish this. Our new Wholesale Product makes it simple for leading payment providers to deploy ShopKeep’s award-winning POS software on a wholesale basis and bundle it with their own offerings to create unique value for their small business customers. Gravity’s great reputation throughout the small business community really makes them an ideal first partner for us and we are so excited to have them on board. ”
“We never enter into partnerships lightly. Every decision is made with our independent business owner in mind and must result in a better experience for them while not compromising our values. We believe our partnership with ShopKeep does just that and the systems that they have built to support the wholesale model makes it really easy for us to onboard business owners onto the product, creating a great experience for our customers,” says Dan Price, Founder and CEO of Gravity Payments.
