Stellar Sellers: Recognizing Top Contributors in the Seller Community, January 2024

Hey everyone, 


2024 is fully underway and we’re kicking off a fun and new initiative in the Seller Community called Stellar Sellers! This new series will celebrate some of the amazing community members and all of their incredible contributions that make this community a great place to be.

How are members selected to be a part of Stellar Sellers?


To discover our top contributors of the month, our team looks at how many best answers members offered, how many kudos they've received, and how engaged they've been in the Community. We also look beyond the metrics and check out how our members embrace our community values and guidelines which help make the Seller Community a welcoming and inclusive space. 


I want to be selected for the Stellar Sellers, how do I make this happen?


Good news! If you’re already active in the Community and connecting with other members, then that is a great start! 


Here are some more things to keep top of mind: 

  • Give and receive kudos (click the Like button)! 💚
  • Provide helpful answers.
  • Create your own posts and engage with others.
  • Be kind and welcoming.


So without further ado, it’s now time for the first edition of our Stellar Sellers! We hope that you’re ready to celebrate these amazing members that have made a big impact in the Seller Community this month.

Exactly what I needed because I am back to working my business after 1095 days of taking care of personal family matters with my now deceased parent. Square changed to Weebly when the order rolled out to stay at home due to the pandemic. Simultaneously, my parent contracted Covid and spouse was in ER for a severed thumb. Geez! All that said, I kept up as much as I could with Square changes. Alas! However, my security blanket was in the sellers community - knowing that they’ve got my back with clarifying questions and getting us answers. Now with these steller folks, I have a better way to access resources quicker. Nice job with this engagement campaign idea!! I’m so happy for all who have been listed and most of all grateful!! Very grateful. My 7yr business has hung in there by a string.  I feel like a start-up and that’s ok. The glory is in the rising! Thank you Community!  


@artsyfaliar Glad to see you back and sorry to hear about all that you are going through! Hoping that this year is a brighter year and appreciate the kind words on this series! 🙂 

Square Champion

@Sam_400º!!!! I know him!! I know him!!!


Congratulations, friend!


Also, I want to be @TheRealChipA when I grow up!


I'm a bit late to the party as I've been away, but congratulations @Sam_400º 🎉 ❤️
