Join your Square Local Community Today!

Earlier this year we launched Square Local - a way for you to connect with other people and business owners in your community online. I’m delighted to let you know that we’ve just upgraded these communities to Groups! Read on to learn how to join a group and how you can participate.

 

How do I join a group? 

 

  1. Find your Group: Choose the group for your region or state (see the descriptions below) or join as many groups as you like. The more the merrier. 😊
  2. Sign in and click Join Group Hub
  3. (Optional but encouraged!) Read the welcome post and introduce yourself

 

How do I participate in a group?

 

  1. To start a new conversation click Start Thread or click Reply to join a conversation. Use the ‘Like’ button to show your appreciation for another seller’s contribution. 💚
  2. Never miss a conversation: click Options > Subscribe to receive a notification each time a new post is published in the group.
  3. Ask questions about using Square, about issues affecting your community or state, share or ask for information about state guidelines/restrictions. Or share a business problem you faced recently and how you overcame it.

 

These new groups will allow you to see the other sellers that have joined from your region. When participating in any group please the Community Etiquette Guidelines in mind. Square Local Groups are open and moderated by the Community Team.

Hello @CBeadle! There is a Canadian Seller Community though we haven't added any groups there, yet! In the meantime you start a thread in the Canadian General Discussions board to start a conversation relevant to Ontario sellers. (I'd suggest including 'Ontario' in the title to catch people's attention.)

 

Thanks for your patience while we work to add more groups!

👋@HWPZEBRAHERD You might be our first seller to join the Square Local groups from Ohio! You could check out Square Local Midwest and say Hello in our Welcome + Introduce Yourself post for that group.

Hi there -- I do not see a British Columbia group or even a Canadian group?

You're right @SuzisSeconds - these groups are part of the US Seller Community. We haven't added any groups to the Canadian Seller Community  where I see you've already started a post. We'll certainly announce it if we create Square Local groups in Canada! Thanks for raising this!

Hi Helen! I’m in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and would love to join a group in my area or at least the same country? I’ve been using square soon after it was available in Canada. 2013 I believe. Thx

Hi Helen and thanks for the invitation. I just join the community and was wondering if there will a Massachusetts community in the near future? Thanks in advance.

Hi @TDS!

 

It looks like Massachusetts is part of the Square Local Northeast mentioned above. 😊

Hi ashc and thanks for the reply. I did notice Massachusetts in a cluster of cities. Like New York and Californian, I'm looking forward to know and be able to connect to Massachusetts community directly. Thanks

Hello and welcome @TDS! We may consider creating more groups in future but, for now, please feel free to ask any Massachusetts-specific questions or start any discussions for that area in the Northeast group. (You are welcome to join any group though!) Thanks for joining!

Hey @bettywhite743! If you are located in Virginia you could join the Southeast group. But you're welcome to join any other groups too!
