About GoDaddy Poynt

Our Mission

We will change the world by providing every merchant with the technology to transform and grow their business.

Hearts Hearts in Technology
Partner Power in Partnership
Future Focus on the Future

GoDaddy Poynt was founded with the mission of fixing a broken commerce ecosystem. We set about creating the world’s first open commerce platform to connect merchants, resellers, and developers with the hardware, software, tools, and services to grow their business without limits.

We work each and every day to make the lives of our merchants a little simpler, whether it’s enabling them to enhance their customer’s experience in-store, helping them meet the challenges of running a business in a digital world, or giving them the tools to manage their businesses from anywhere.

We’re enabling the dentist’s office to manage its employees’ schedules; we help the local bakery grow repeat customers with a loyalty program; we make it easier for the nail salon to manage expenses with a QuickBooks integration; and we give the clothing boutique the tools to monitor their inventory.
