If you’re an independent retailer, you’re probably already familiar with Lightspeed, as their point of sale software is a major leader in this space.
With nearly 50,000 merchants using it, Lighstpeed now operates in more than 100 countries, in multiple languages and currencies, and processes over US $15 billion in transactions annually.
What you may not be as familiar with is their ecommerce platform, as it hasn’t yet garnered the name recognition that the other big ecommerce players have, such as Shopify and Magento.
But if that has you hesitating on whether it’s the right fit for your online store, we suggest a deeper look at the advantages it brings to the table.
First off, know that it’s been only three years since they acquired their ecommerce platform and they are hell-bent on investing in its expansion.
In fact, in October of 2017, they closed a $166 million Series D investment to expand their software and improve the omni-channel capabilities for independent retailers.
“Lightspeed, which differentiates itself from competitors like Square and PayPal with its back-office software, is gearing up for expansion.”
You can rest easy knowing that Lightspeed is in it for the long haul and will be continuing to perfect their ecommerce platform as a global leader for omnichannel merchants.
