Diving is an in-person experience, which means the pandemic was a heavy weight belt for the Bondi Dive Centre. But with the help of Square they moved online, and launched a retail store. We spoke to Duncan about their ‘pain-free’ transition to link their website to point of sale and inventory systems.

FINDING THE SWEET SPOT ONLINE

When the Sydney lockdown settled in, KOI Desserts Bar was stuck. They'd put a lot of effort into building their in-store experience, and 90% of their business went out the door overnight. However, their customers still craved that sweet moment of happiness a great dessert can bring, and so an idea was born - KOIrantine. In 2 weeks, their online delivery service was up and running. We spoke to KOI's Johnny Bhalla about how Square's eCommerce tools have supported them to grow, do and sell more.
