Landing page builders
2018. Mailchimp partnered with Square to launch shoppable landing pages
Email newsletter service Mailchimp announced a partnership with Square that will allow its users to create landing pages with built-in e-commerce features. These shoppable landing pages are meant to give businesses a new sales channel to sell things like limited-edition goods or run-targeted promotions. Mailchimp’s landing pages have been around a while. Until now, though, they were mostly meant to capture additional email addresses or link people to a store. Now, with this new partnership, customers will be able to build a full shopping flow with built-in payments right into these pages. To make this easier, Mailchimp is offering a number of pre-designed templates and a drag-and-drop builder. Square will charge a flat processing rate and Mailchimp will offer this service for free.
