Blaze Candle & Wax is a small business that hand-pours its candles in small batches and takes pride in a personal touch.

Like many merchants, Blaze Candle & Wax is busiest during the holiday season. The beginning of each year is typically much quieter for Ryan and Raul, who weren’t expecting 2021 to be any different. That wasn’t for lack of trying, though. Despite a series of clever marketing plays, as January came and passed, it seemed like orders weren’t going to substantially increase until later in the year.

It all changed when Ryan, who had previously given Fast checkout a try, took 10 minutes to install PeachPay. Blaze Candle & Wax saw the number of orders more than quadruple in the following month. Everything came together for the company’s congenital heart disease (CHD) fundraiser. This noble initiative precipitated a significant increase in website visitors and, because the store offered a frictionless checkout experience through PeachPay, conversions followed en masse.

"As a small business owner, I have never felt more supported by what I'd consider a partner in my business. I would highly recommend PeachPay for any eCommerce brands.

..I've seen an incredible increase in transactions routed through PeachPay, which has only made me more excited to grow together with them."
