Newly registered domain names enable small business owners to easily accept payments from customers

TEMPE, Ariz., Feb. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- GoDaddy Inc. (NYSE: GDDY), the company that empowers entrepreneurs around the world, today announced the launch of Payable Domains, which allow entrepreneurs to register a new domain and easily start accepting payments from customers. GoDaddy is the first company to seamlessly bundle payment technology with the brand power of a professional domain – at no additional cost – to help small business owners start growing from day one.

For more than 30 years, domain names have been essential to the digital identities of entrepreneurs and companies worldwide. Yet during this time relatively little innovation has occurred–– until now. Powered by GoDaddy Payments, Payable Domains are branded pay links that create a secure checkout page, shareable via a link, that enable U.S.-based domain name customers to begin accepting payments shortly after they purchase a newly registered domain, even if they do not yet have a website or online store. Any domain purchased after, or for any existing domain owners, the respective Payable Domain can be accessed through their GoDaddy back-end dashboard.

Combining the ability to accept payments with the credibility of a domain name enables small businesses to get up and running instantly. Small business owners can easily share their Payable Domain with customers through text, social media, QR code and more—and with GoDaddy Payments' industry-low transaction fees of 2.3% + $0.30 per online transaction, they will keep more of what they make.

It would be nice if they could expand this to domain sales.

So I sell a domain privately and I can process the sale through GoDaddy payments at pay.mapledots.ca


@jamesiles do you see that happening?
 
What prevents you from just putting the QR code or link to buy your domain rignt on your domain name's landing page?
 
I would like to see more information about this in general.

The example they gave is super basic - Try out GoDaddy Payable Domains @ GoDaddy
Why roohshad.co? Who knows.

In the PR it says -

In addition, small business owners can customize their Payable Domain with their company logo, product images, cost of their products or services, or other branded content to create a seamless checkout experience and maintain a personal and professional look.

I would love to see an example site with these features in use.
There are lot of other options in the field like Paypal, Stripe, Square, etc.

Can't you just manually have someone pay for a domain via that link?
If GoDaddy makes it easier they would be hurting their own 15%-25% fees.

Where is the TOS? I am interested to know what their terms are regarding chargebacks.
What is the maximum that can be charged to a CC, etc.

On a side note, this graphic is just silly. This innovation does not belong on this chart.
Nothing happened for 10 years, until this. 🤣

I found this from the GoDaddy Payments FAQ -
https://www.godaddy.com/payments

Can GoDaddy Payments be used by businesses based outside of the US?

Today, GoDaddy Payments is only available to US-based businesses.

Does GoDaddy Payments offer additional security like fraud protection?

Today we don't offer additional fraud protection services. We monitor transactions to catch unusual activity and notify the merchant of potential fraud. The merchant is still liable for chargebacks.

Are there any restrictions on who can use GoDaddy Payments?

Yes, there are categories of businesses and business practices that are restricted from using GoDaddy Payments. Please see here for more information.

Interesting suggestion - I doubt there's any plans for that, but happy to feed that back.
