You may have noticed a change to the homepage today - we’ve just added tile for Seller Groups. This will make it easier for you to find, join and visit Seller Community groups. To check it out right now go to the homepage and click Seller Groups.
We have been busy creating a variety of groups and we aren’t finished yet! Everyone who is a member of the Seller Community can join an open group or can request to join a private group.
Here’s an overview of the Communities that you can join today:
A set of open regional groups that are designed to help sellers connect with each other and find and share local resources. You are welcome to join each group or choose the one for your state! Learn more about Square Local Communities.
Super Seller Lounge
This is an invite-only area exclusively for our Super Sellers. Super Sellers are Square advocates who are passionate about small business. To learn how to become a Super Seller check out this post: How to engage with Square on the Community + Beyond (and potentially become a Super Seller!)
We have an entire Community for Spanish speaking sellers where you can ask questions, share business strategies, learn about Product Updates and meet fellow Hispanic sellers! Click Español at the top of the screen to join. Feel free to introduce yourself on our “Nuevos miembros” board.
The purpose of this group is to highlight the work and resilience of the Asian Pacific Island (API) community, to create a business resource hub, and to build a place where API sellers can connect.
This group is a place where anyone in the beauty and health industries can connect, share ideas, and help support each other with the unique knowledge and insights.
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 serve to your customers!
We are planning to add even more groups but also welcome your suggestions! Share your ideas with us below.
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!
Thank you for sharing your feedback @Kats_Grocery! If we create a group for grocery stores/retail stores we'll add it to the list here and notify you too!
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!
