Square only recently stepped foot in Australia to bring its payments and financial services to SMEs, but it is quickly building its presence in the market.
On Tuesday (Jan. 17), Square revealed a partnership with Australia-based Weebly, an eCommerce-as-a-Service company, to help entrepreneurs and SMEs launch online. Together, Weebly will enable its small businesses to access Square’s financial solutions in an effort to help these companies transact both online and off.
Their integration combines payments, eCommerce, marketing, taxes and other small business services, the companies said.
“We are seeing a spike in entrepreneurship on the Weebly platform across Australia,” said Weebly Vice President of International Troy Malone in a statement, who added: “With this new partnership, [SMEs’] 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,” explained Square Australian Country Manager Ben Pfisterer in another statement. “Together, we’re empowering businesses to sell products in-store and online, with Square providing a fully integrated omnichannel platform that enables a single, holistic view across all sales.”
Square first launched in Australia last year, marking the fourth country in which the company operates. Last March, the company announced its partnership with Australian banking services company Cuscal alongside the rollout of its full suite of POS solutions in the nation.
