Originally named ZippyKid, the company was founded in 2010 by Vid Luther and group of friends aiming to “empower site owners to focus on building their sites instead of dealing with technical issues”. In 2013 they re-branded to a much more WordPress-friendly name: Pressable.
In 2016 Automattic became a majority stakeholder, after having invested significantly the year before. Vid Luther left the company following the sale.
Pressable’s positioning is reflected in its product portfolio, with plans targeting agencies and developers, high traffic / Enterprise websites and WooCommerce stores.
Complementing this a partnership program that extends beyond the affiliate scheme model, where they work closely with partner agencies on content and promotional activities too.
