What's your business, and who are your customers?
Zift is a revolutionary payment technology company that is helping software platforms seamlessly integrate and embed payments into their solutions. At Zift, we understand that businesses today require flexible payment solutions that can be easily integrated into their existing software platforms. That's where we come in. Our cutting-edge payment technology allows software platforms to enable payments for their users, so they can accept credit card, debit card, and ACH transactions without any hassle. Our primary customers are vertical software platforms that want to embed payments into their offerings.
Tell us about yourself
I have been working in the payments industry since 2008. With the growth of the SaaS industry, it became apparent how important it would be for software platforms to have payments as a seamless part of their solution. That's when we decided to start Zift. With Zift, vertical SaaS companies can offer users a seamless payment experience, eliminating the need for multiple payment systems or payment gateways.
It's exciting to see the way technology is constantly evolving and how that has influenced the way we pay each other for the goods and services we acquire. Payments are a big part of what we do as individuals and businesses on a daily basis. At Zift, we are at the center of that cross-section, which motivates me each day to help companies improve how they accept payments and develop new and improved ways to embed payments through the software platforms we use to manage our lives and businesses on a daily basis.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Being able to see our business grow from nothing to what it is now and adding new people to our team through that process.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Wearing multiple hats and managing all the different and unique demands that can end up on your plate on a daily basis.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Be patient.
- Trust your team.
- Learn how to sell.
