As you know, we at Goodtill — alongside European POS provider Tiller — joined forces with SumUp in November of last year. Our three brands share the mission of providing unrivalled support for merchants and creating transformative experiences for end-users for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
Goodtill will benefit from SumUp’s vast range of innovative payment solutions and we will work together to offer our existing merchants a seamless, integrated experience connecting our very own POS tools with the powerful payment products offered only by SumUp.
Our role to play
While we’ll leave the name “Goodtill” behind, our young start-up has given businesses in the UK and Ireland a lifeline in recent times by providing essential features for the hospitality sector, including mobile table service and online ordering to stay afloat through the most testing of economic and health crises.
Goodeats mobile ordering has stormed to the forefront of the food service industry, processing over 7.2 million delivery and collection orders for restaurants and cafes throughout the duration of the lockdowns we saw last year. We, together with SumUp and Tiller, will continue to support and grow small and large businesses alike by offering more opportunities and ever-evolving capabilities in the future through this merger.
We’ll keep doing what we do best
Our incredible merchants have given us great feedback on many aspects of the products we have on offer, but our UK-based customer support team has always been a standout.
Our dedicated support team help our merchants through the entire purchasing process and beyond as we forego the aggressive sales pitch and incessant calls to introduce some much-needed human touch to the process. We are known to take the time to get to know our customers and their respective businesses and carve out a way for our products to help achieve the ambitious business goals our merchants are set on.
Onboarded and elevated to become SumUp Point of Sale
SumUp Point of Sale is the brand new POS powerhouse that will continue to serve existing Goodtill and Tiller merchants around the world while offering incredible perks unique to SumUp’s payment solutions.
Our Goodtill merchants will stay a priority and be among the first to know about any upcoming SumUp technology, from card readers to printers and more.
Time for an upgrade
You may have already heard about the SumUp Air Card Reader — a powerful tool that processes payments quickly and safely, via card, contactless, mobile and more. This, combined with your Goodtill POS will allow you to offer exceptional customer service, boosted by the many seamless integrations that are and will be developed in the future.
You will also see our Goodtill platform change over time as we undergo rebranding to enhance the entire product experience.
What does this mean for you?
The most important thing to note is that our Goodtill merchants will continue to use our POS products as normal. From mid-October, you will begin to see a change in the look and feel of our existing tools, as we become SumUp Point of Sale. The interface of solutions like the back office, website and app will become more and more intuitive and champion simplicity to reflect the new and improved SumUp POS product and brand.
You will still have the same access to the POS, Goodeats Mobile Ordering and our array of integrations, with the added ability to log in to any SumUp product with a single credential in the future so you can enjoy a comprehensive one-platform experience.
Support is still here
The customer support teams for Goodtill will stay put, so our merchants will get the same local and product-specific support that they’re used to.
We’ll be on-hand to support our UK and Ireland merchants and be accessible the same way we have always been. If you have any queries regarding any SumUp products, please get in touch with our SumUp customer support team, who’ll be happy to help.
