Seamless Sales – Processing payments just got easier with GoDaddy


While the foodservice industry has achieved remarkable growth, it still has a long way to go in its post-pandemic recovery. According to Restaurants Canada, half of restaurants and foodservice companies report operating at a loss or just breaking-even due to ongoing challenges, such as increased food and transportation costs, debt, and labour shortages.

GoDaddy Canada has launched a new all-in-one commerce platform, including a new Point-of-Sale Smart Terminal (POS), to help Canada’s foodservice and hospitality operators take in-store payments more easily and benefit from lower transaction fees. The Smart Terminal allows restaurants to accept payments from all major credit cards quickly and securely, with payouts as fast as the next business day. Most importantly, the Smart Terminal POS is powered by GoDaddy Payments software which currently offers the lowest transaction fees* in the industry at 2.3 per cent + 0 cents for in-person transactions and 2.7 per cent + 0 cents for online transactions, allowing foodservice operators to put more money back into their pockets. The modern GoDaddy Point-of-Sale Smart Terminal device is equipped with built-in receipt printing, a barcode scanner, and dual screens, wrapped in a light-weight design with 4G LTE connectivity. 

In addition to GoDaddy Smart Terminal, their commerce platform brings a range of new products to the Canadian market, including GoDaddy Payments for payment processing and Online Pay Links which are easily shareable links that create a secure checkout page and offers a simple way to accept payment without needing a website. The Virtual Terminal allows taking orders and making payments over any phone with a web browser possible.

GoDaddy Smart Terminal integrates with GoDaddy’s ecommerce website builders, Websites+Marketing & Managed WordPress, to allow restaurants to offer curbside or takeout orders that customers place online, as well as manage online and on-premises sales, all from one centralized dashboard. 

 “Using GoDaddy’s all-in- one commerce platform with GoDaddy Payments, gives foodservice and hospitality industry operators an easy solution to manage their orders, get paid and stay connected with their customers, while saving money,” says Young Lee, Market Lead at GoDaddy. “In addition, with GoDaddy’s streamlined dashboard, foodservice businesses can manage and navigate their commerce data in one spot and track information such as performance, payments, and deposits.,” added Young.
