Benefits for Square Retailers
Solutions partners can be a critical piece of a business’s growth by creating new revenue streams and custom integrations for storefronts, restaurants, or online stores.
To date, Square Solutions Partners have enabled sellers to launch customized kiosks, creative mobile checkout experiences, and deep integrations with third-party inventory and eCommerce stores.
Solutions partners help sellers win new business, increase efficiency, and invent new ways to bring Square’s seamless checkout flow to life.
The program already includes over 75 certified solutions partners across three categories:
Mobile and Web Agencies
These agencies help businesses develop unique online and mobile commerce experiences through a variety of platform integrations.
Whether businesses are using eCommerce platforms like Magento, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce, or are creating new checkout experiences through kiosks and mobile devices, sellers can now more effectively run their business and service their customers.
These partners simplify the critical back-end of a scaling business by connecting Square-powered points of sale with their ERP, OMS, and CMS solutions.
By enabling sellers to sync sales, customer information, and inventory data using APIs or pre-built integrations, Systems Integrators help manage all aspects of a business’s operations.
The reseller program is designed for partners that work with clients to identify, recommend, and implement the right point of sale hardware and software.
This new solutions partner program should give Square another feature to impress on small businesses that its payment processing platform offers the most variety and flexible options for their business.
Retailers and online merchants can now visit the Square solutions partner marketplace to find solutions to help their businesses grow.
