Feature Request: Square for Retail Available in Canada?

Hi, we have a new account and would like the vendor management feature of Square for Retail. I do not see the app in the App Store, so is it not available in Canada yet? 

 

Thanks.

Hi @WCAS - You are correct. Square for Retail is only available within the US at this time. We'll make sure to announce if that changes in the future.

I was told square for retail is US only. I'm in Canada. Is this not possible in Canada?

@NELLAMORE You're right, Square for Retail is currently only available in the US. If it's available in Canada in future we'll let you know!

I understand that Inventory Plus is only available in the USA it seems square users in Canada have been asking for this a long time at least 2 years. There is  not estimated time for when it would be implemented? This is a very important part of business. and would help immensely.  This is also something most Point of Sales have now and with the fees we are paying it would seem that we should also have this feature. 

Please give us a estimated time for when this feature will be available. my patience are wearing out.

Hey there! I hear you in your frustration for Square for Retail to be available in Canada. Detailed inventory management is super important to businesses, you're right, and we are working diligently on getting our Retail system (or Inventory Plus) available outside of the US. While I don't have a specific date, I can assure you it is on our road-map and top of mind, so your continued patience is appreciated. I have merged your post with an existing thread so we can keep all of these requests in one place.

 

In the meantime, I will encourage you to take a look at our inventory management partners that will be able to help you organize your inventory. You can get there by vising your Dashboard > Apps > Items & Inventory. We have seven integrations you can choose from. Shopventory is our most popular at the moment, but I urge you to find the system that is the best fit for your business. 

 

Let me know if you have any other questions. 🙂

Do we have a time line for this feature to come into play. Or do we need to start looking at different pos systems that have this feature

@Angele -

 

I'm afraid we do not have a shareable timeline when Square Retail is coming to Canada. Keep tabs on this thread as we'll share updates  as they come.

Is it still not available in Canada? This seems insane to me! Inventory is inventory regardless of country what is the hold up??

I have all my items in square and I have them Categorized how I like it. But it would be amazing if we could add a vendor column to the items.  Then not only would I be able to track sales by type but by the vendor also. Which would make ordering so much nicer.

Hey @Jason21, welcome to the Seller Community!

 

Thanks for bringing this up—this feature is included with Square for Retail, though I wasn't able to access a specific timeline for when that app will be available in Canada.

 

I'll be sure to surface your post with our Retail Team. In the meantime, you may want to have a look at our App Marketplace for partner services who may be able to offer a suitable solution

 

Appreciate your patience, and please don't hesitate to let us know if anything else comes up!

When will the Square Retail App with inventory cost be available in Canada. I would save much time and effort to have a field for cost of item.

Hey @Manana welcome to the Seller Community!!

 

I merged your post with an existing thread that we are using to track this feature request. As you can see, it is a popular one and is definitely on our radar. While I don't have a timeline for you on when it will be released, I can say that we also agree that this will really help benefit sellers as far as saving time in inventory tracking. 

 

In the meantime, you can also view any of our partner apps for inventory tracking to see if they fit your needs as a business owner.

Is there a reason its taking so long for Square for Retail to be available in Canada? This thread was created November 2018.... 

I hate having to use multiple 3rd party apps and trying to remember passwords and make sure things are synced correctly. I would prefer to have it all in one system.

@meggyj113 I'm really sorry for the frustration and that Square for Retail isn't available in Canada - yet. But I have some good news! We're currently beta-testing Square for Retail with a small group of sellers in Canada. Though, it's a closed beta program which means we can't add more sellers to it I'm afraid. Is there a specific feature (or features) of Square for Retail that you're interested in?

@Helen  I hope it gets out of the beta phase soon! I’m really interested in having wholesalers/vendor information to be able to be reordering easier, having the whole sale cost available in the back end to see wholesale vs retail prices,  marketing,  instant payment transfers.    

I currently own a hair salon with a large inventory of hair products, but I also work with a lot of small local businesses selling their inventory whom also use square so this would help greatly.

I would love for this to be available in Canada. It’s frustrating that this thread goes back two years and it’s still not available here. Is there an estimate for how long the testing phase is expected to last?
