Our mission is to help eCommerce stores reach their potential. Want to join?

eCommerce owners face two major barriers to growth - accessing growth funding for inventory or marketing and acquiring customers profitably. Wayflyer uses data to solve both of these challenges, giving store owners insights on how best to acquire customers online (this is currently free) and funding these businesses with short-term finance (not free!).

We have offices in Dublin, London, Sydney and New York.
