Today is an exciting day at Swipely. Staying true to our roots, we’re moving to 10 Dorrance Street, in the heart of Providence’s downtown Kennedy Plaza neighborhood. There’s no place we’d rather call home as we grow to help thousands of restaurants and retailers better understand customers and grow sales.
If you’re in the New England area this December, we’d love to meet up. Swipely is supporting our Rhode Island and Connecticut merchants at local awards ceremonies, celebrating the best in the hospitality industry. We’re also heading down the street to Brown University’s campus to discuss entrepreneurship with Brown and RISD’s talented students.Read More

Generally speaking, we can be found working away in Providence, Rhode Island. But we love getting out to meet the people helping to make Swipely a huge success. This fall is no exception.

Whether you’re already using Swipely or want to learn more about how we can help you grow your business, we’d love to see you at one of these events in October:Read More
When we processed our first card swipe back in June 2012 we knew we were on to something big. The credit card processing industry hadn’t changed in nearly 40 years, and as a result main street businesses were largely in the dark when it came to the data flowing through their credit card terminals.
We had a hunch that if we gave business owners access to the information behind their transactions, they would turn those insights into real-world action, using it to understand customers and grow their revenue.Read More
I ask because you know business is growing, but how fast? Now you can review all of your Swipely data for any time period you desire, instead of just month to month. Select a predefined period such as Last 7, 14 or 30 Days, This Month, Last Month, and Last 3 Months…or you can define a custom daterange. It is available on all of your Analytics reports, including Sales Summary, Repeat Customers, Day of Week, and Time of Day. By default it is set to show the last 30 days of sales, so no more logging in with limited data on the 3rd of the month.Read More
Pair programming is a software development practice that reduces risk and uncertainty by putting two minds at work in concert on the same problem. Recently, Swipely’s engineering team has been pairing on a product feature to help local merchants manage their online reputation. And when we spontaneously decided to pair on the RI Rhode Races half marathon, we realized that a lot of the benefits are the same for running as they are for programming.Read More
