First, Shopial has launched a social shopping tool that allows retailers to create retail Pins, for use on Pinterest, from their store catalogs.

"We believe in the importance of an omnipresence in the social space for businesses. Through plugging into an engaged user base on Facebook and Pinterest, merchants can help people discover their products," says Ofir Tahor, Co-Founder and CEO of Shopial. "Our platform provides a hassle-free way for merchants to tap into the power of Pinterest. We are thrilled to offer this solution and to expand our offering to additional platforms soon."

Meanwhile, PayStand has partnered with app-based platform ONE UP to offer online payments. Through the partnership ONE UP brands will be able to use PayStand payment processing to their payment options.

"Our mission is to use the power of the Internet to simplify, accelerate and lower the costs of business payments," said Jeremy Almond, founder and CEO of PayStand. "Working with ONE UP, we can make our vision a reality for hundreds of thousands of small businesses. This is a great opportunity and a great validation of the reliability, scalability and security of our platform."
