iZettle is launching an ecommerce platform
Payments service iZettle has launched a new ecommerce platform that will allow merchants to sell in-store, online and on-the-go, all from one place.
iZettle E-commerce lets small business owners set up and customise a brand new webshop or start selling across multiple channels online, including social media, blogs and existing websites. Bridging the gap between offline and online, iZettle boasts that the integrated ecommerce platform keeps track of all sales and inventory in one place.
This launch is part of iZettle’s strategy to extend its commerce platform by offering a wider range of affordable tools to small businesses. Ecommerce is becoming an increasingly important part of total retail sales in iZettle’s key markets, where the UK dominates in Europe with total sales value through ecommerce is estimated to have totalled €77 billion in 2017.
This is iZettle’s biggest product launch since 2011 and it is a huge moment for us. Today’s consumers expect businesses to be present both offline and online, and half of iZettle’s users currently don’t have an online shop and the other half struggle with different complex online systems. iZettle E-commerce solves these problems, helping small businesses find new customers and sell more – all from one place.
