ERPLY is proud to lend its support to Small Business Saturday and drives commerce to small businesses.
Today we are happy to announce our participation in this year’s Small Business Saturday, taking place on November 26th. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting local small businesses and strengthening and celebrating communities across the country.
We’ve been a supporter of brick and mortar stores since our launch all the way back in 2009. Now we’re proud to be a part of the one holiday that promotes the businesses right on your block. With ERPLY as your partner we make it easy to keep track of sales and all of the important data so that you can focus on what’s most important, building a relationship with your local customers.
Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday serves as the ceremonial kickoff to the holiday shopping season for small businesses across the United States. In 2015, 95 million consumers shopped at small businesses on Small Business Saturday and spent an estimated $16.2 billion at independent retailers and restaurants on the day, according to the 2015 Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey.¹ The day was also championed by elected officials in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., including President Obama.
The entire ERPLY team recognizes the importance of supporting small businesses, the jobs they help create, and the culture they instill in local communities. According to the U.S. Small Businesses Administration, as of 2014, small businesses nationwide accounted for 63% of net new private-sector jobs created and represented 99.7% of firms with paid employees.²

Small Business Saturday was created in 2010 in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: more customers.
