When WePay, an online payments platform, was first founded, its primary target audience was college students who needed an easy and affordable payment transaction service.

Since then, WePay has expanded beyond individual transactions and now also caters to businesses and larger organizations. With a diversifying and expanding customer base and a growing internal team, it needed business applications that allow the company to quickly understand its customers and their support needs.

Zendesk Support was one of the first business solutions that met WePay’s growth demands. To answer customers how-to questions and support inquiries, WePay leverages many of Zendesk Support’s features and integrations.
