The Next Chapter

 

Customers and friends:

I am excited to announce that we have entered into a definitive agreement to join forces with GoDaddy.  The last 7 years have been the most amazing adventure for Poynt from its humble living room beginnings to changing an industry of giants.  I’m grateful for the support of our investors and advisors, in awe of our team’s accomplishments, appreciative for our pioneering partners and inspired by our small business customers.  

7 years ago we embarked on an ambitious vision to connect every small business in the world with commerce technology superpowers by re-imagining the payment terminal.  We’ve since defined a new category of Android-based smart payment terminals, partnered with the world's top processing banks, engaged thousands of developers to build SMB apps and empowered hundreds of thousands of small businesses. In the process, we’ve assembled an amazing team and built an advanced omni-commerce platform that enables merchants to transform and grow their businesses. 

In GoDaddy, we found a company that shares our passion and vision for the future of small business commerce. Combined, we will accelerate our efforts to build a powerful SMB connected commerce solution, helping millions of entrepreneurs succeed - starting with the millions who already use GoDaddy.  We are blown away by GoDaddy’s customer focus, suite of digital business tools and passion to help everyday entrepreneurs make their dreams a reality.   We are super excited about the exponential impact we will make together and can’t wait to get started.

Going forward, I want to assure you that Poynt will continue to support our products and partnerships. Our mission remains unchanged. We will simply have more resources to build seamless and intuitive commerce products, expand our partnerships and delight many more customers.  We look forward to sharing more about what we’ll be working on together in the near future.  Commerce is entering a new chapter where connected commerce is the new normal. The opportunities are endless and with GoDaddy we’re committed to helping small businesses succeed by empowering them to sell everywhere.

Thank you all for getting us to this point! Stay tuned!
