Between October 2015 and October 2016, Australians spent an estimated $21 billion online – and the trend shows no sign of slowing. Business owners with brick-and-mortar businesses must remain competitive by reaching their customers easily on every channel, no matter where they choose to shop.
That’s why we’re proud to introduce Square for E-Commerce, enabling you to accept payments online with Square and your web shopfront powered by the world’s largest and most popular website builders: BigCommerce, Weebly, Ecwid, WooCommerce, Magento and Wix.
Whether you’re setting up your online store for the very first time or updating your existing store, you can connect your Square account with one of the above platforms simply by selecting Square as your payment method. From there, Square gives you a holistic view of every payment you process, whether it’s online or in-store, from your Square dashboard. It’s a simple, fully integrated, 360º view of your business that you won’t get anywhere else, making it easier to process more sales, track your business performance and optimise by channel.
There are many benefits for using Square to accept payments in-store and online:
