GoDaddy announced the integrations of GoDaddy Email Marketing, Shippo, and McAfee Secure Certification with GoDaddy Online Store to help users grow their small businesses without having to "deal with disparate technologies."

"GoDaddy Email Marketing will help small business owners easily communicate with current customers and start relationships with prospects," a spokesperson for the company tells WebProNews. "Shippo will give Online Store users a single dashboard to manage and track orders, print shipping labels, and offer small businesses shipping rate discounts which gives a leg up against other sites that attract customers with promises of low cost shipping. Lastly the McAfee SECURE trustmark will help ensure the security and safety of GoDaddy online stores to visitors."

GoDaddy Online Store first launched last year, and now has over 40,000 customers.

The email marketing integration will enable small businesses to easily collect email addresses, manage contacts, and send email campaigns. This and the other features join previously released updates like integration with Facebook stores (through a partnership with Shopial) and the inclusion of customer reviews (via a partnership with Yotpo).

“We created Online Store to make it easier for small businesses to build ecommerce websites. We are proud to expand our offering with GoDaddy Email Marketing integration, Shippo, and McAfee SECURE certification,” said Lauren Antonoff, SVP Presence & Commerce at GoDaddy. “We are constantly working to provide tools that improve the lives of small business owners who need our products to work without having to sift through technical details. Online Store answers this call for functionality without hassle; our customers will now be able to easily keep in touch and with and better serve their customers, driving more repeat business.”

GoDaddy Online Store is available to small businesses in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Philippines, Singapore, and India.
