I’m excited to announce that SkyVerge is joining GoDaddy.
Seven years ago, when Justin and I founded SkyVerge, we had two goals: to build software that would help eCommerce companies of all sizes run their businesses and delight their customers, and to create the kind of company where we wanted to work.
Fast forward seven years, and over 100,000 businesses rely on our WooCommerce plugins and our email marketing platform, Jilt, and we’ve assembled an amazing team of three dozen people who work from across the world. I’m extremely proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish together, and I’m super excited for this next chapter.
Our future with GoDaddy
During our early conversations with GoDaddy, one thing became very clear: we share a very similar vision for open eCommerce. Both of our teams understand that the future of eCommerce is so much greater than where we are today, and we’re both committed to building tools that help everyday entrepreneurs thrive as commerce continues to shift online.
More than a shared vision, we also quickly realized that GoDaddy shares our commitment to customers and team. They’re known for their world-class customer care and they’ve been continually recognized for their commitments to diversity and equity in the workplace. We’ve worked hard to build a team culture of openness and inclusion, and we’re known for going the extra mile for our customers. Those same qualities are extremely important to GoDaddy, too.
GoDaddy is one of the largest WooCommerce hosts on the planet, and we’ll help improve the customer experience and expand their offering. This is an incredible opportunity for us to continue our mission to level the playing field for millions of small eCommerce businesses. We remain committed to our customers and our team—but now we have the resources of GoDaddy to back us up!
What this means for our existing customers
We made a commitment to be there for your business with software you can depend on, and we’re sticking to it. We’ll continue to support our existing WooCommerce plugins and Jilt. While we’ll be building something new at GoDaddy, everything we’ve already built is a big part of that. Our customers are important to us, and they’re important to GoDaddy, too! We’ll continue to provide the same level of support that you’ve come to expect from SkyVerge.
This is a big milestone for our team, one that means we’ll be able to pursue our mission of helping small and medium-sized eCommerce businesses with even greater impact. It’s a milestone that we could not have reached, however, without the support of our incredible customers.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us on this journey and we’re excited to take this next step with you!
