Seller Community: Join a Group!

Hello!


Did you know that you can join a variety of groups within the Seller Community? Every member of the Seller Community can join an open group or request to join a private group.

 

To check it out right now, go to the groups page. You can also click the Connect tile on the home page and select Join a Group.

 

Here’s an overview of the current groups:

 

Beauty and Wellness

This group is a place where anyone in the beauty and health industries can connect, share ideas, and help support each other with their unique knowledge and insights.

 

Food and Beverage

Join this group to meet fellow food and beverage business owners. Ask questions, talk about your business, share a customer story, or tell us about the awesome service and products you provide for your customers!

Hello! We are JMSD Photography! A small black and female owned startup. We wanted a place where we could show off our creativity and make a little money as well. We would love to support anyone anyway we can!

Localized groups are great!  I would also like to see groups centered around industries.  For example: clothing retailer, art stores, book stores, etc.  I think a lot of us would find it helpful to be able to swap ideas and troubleshoot within our niche industries in the groups.

Welcome to the Seller Community @BetwixtStudios and thank you for taking the time to share your interest in industry-specific groups. We recently launched a new group for anyone in the Beauty and Wellness industry (I just added it to the list above!).

 

Hopefully we'll be able to add more groups for different industries soon!

I have 2 grocery stores and would like to see a group for grocery/specialty grocery stores.  We also have gifts, so maybe gift shops/retail?

Also, we are in Kentucky,  so a region for us as well. Mid-eastern states.

I've been looking for a way to pull together any FOOD TRUCK-specific Q&As; a Seller Group seems like a great method! 

 

It would make it much easier for other food truckers to find tips & tricks to making Square work better under our specific scenarios.  Sometimes I dig around for hours to find the tidbit in a community comment that finally explains why a feature just won't work for us.  I can bookmark it for myself, but it would be great to be able to tag/flag it for others.  Posting a link in a Seller Group might be a good way to do that.  (hmmm...🤔 now I'm wondering if I can share a bookmark list. LOL 😄

 

Thanks, @Helen , for managing this list of Seller Groups!

Thanks @Mexitrachos, we are definitely hearing the need to add more groups around specific industries, including Food Trucks! We'll share updates in this thread and in the Community. Thanks for your patience in the meantime!

I'm not seeing any groups for Veteran Owned Businesses.  Is this coming soon?

How about groups for small non-profits (less than $50,000 annual income) and all-volunteer businesses.

This sounds like a great idea!  I would like to suggest a group for Family Entertainment Centers.  It would be nice to collaborate on the best ways to use what square offers in our unique experiences.

Hi Helen thanks for all you do.  How about a group for direct sales and craft event vendors?  I do both and not much out there for neither.  Thanks.
