ShopKeep has adapted its platform to fully support wholesale
distribution of its software, including a new partner portal that
enables third party sales agents to easily board new customers onto the
ShopKeep platform as a value-add offering to its own services. The
program is a move to compete in the ever-evolving and highly competitive
POS market, where companies are battling to ‘own the countertop' of
small and independent merchants. Through this partnership, Gravity
Payments robust team of non-commission sales representatives will now be
able to offer their 20,000 small business customers ShopKeep's top-rated
point of sale software to help those businesses efficiently manage
operations and point of sale for their business.

"More than ever, what we are seeing is the world of payment processing
and point of sale technology converging. Traditional payment processors
are realizing that great technology is a true point of differentiation
and that they need to couple this technology with payment processing to
gain and maintain control of the merchant's countertop," says ShopKeep
CEO, Michael DeSimone. "At ShopKeep we are prepared to equip top-tier
payments providers with world-class software to help them accomplish
this. Our new Wholesale Product makes it simple for leading payment
providers to deploy ShopKeep's award winning POS software on a wholesale
basis and bundle it with their own offerings to create unique value for
their small business customers. Gravity's great reputation throughout
the small business community really makes them an ideal first partner
for us and we are so excited to have them on board."

"We never enter into partnerships lightly. Every decision is made with
our independent business owner in mind and must result in a better
experience for them while not compromising our values. We believe our
partnership with ShopKeep does just that and the systems that they have
built to support the wholesale model makes it really easy for us to
onboard business owners onto the product, creating a great experience
for our customers," says Dan Price, Founder and CEO of Gravity Payments.
