Payment processor Square announced this week the Square Solutions Partner Program. This new program will better connect sellers of all sizes with best in class partners that can build solutions specific to a business’s needs.
Small business owners who are just getting started, and large-scale sellers with complex needs, will be able to easily identify Square approved agencies, resellers, or systems integrators.
Agencies interested to become a part of the Square Solutions Partner Program can apply by going here.
Approved companies that join the Solutions Partner Program are eligible to receive early access to beta products, specialized account management, and additional financial benefits.
Partners will also be able to offer their clients all the great benefits that come with using Square. This includes a superior commerce experience with PCI compliance, dispute management, and simple, fair, and transparent rates.
“The App Marketplace now boasts hundreds of partners that help boost productivity and sales, but growing Square sellers often seek a partner to build custom solutions for their business. The Solutions Partner Program doubles down on our commitment to build a strong partnership platform.”
Pankaj Bengani, Square Global Partnerships Lead
Benefits for Retailers
Solutions partners can be a critical piece of a business’s growth by creating new revenue streams and custom integrations for storefronts, restaurants, or online stores.
To date, Square Solutions Partners have enabled sellers to launch customized kiosks, creative mobile checkout experiences, and deep integrations with third-party inventory and eCommerce stores.
Solutions partners help sellers win new business, increase efficiency, and invent new ways to bring Square’s seamless checkout flow to life.
The program already includes over 75 certified solutions partners across three categories:
Mobile and Web Agencies
These agencies help businesses develop unique online and mobile commerce experiences through a variety of platform integrations.
Whether businesses are using eCommerce platforms like Magento, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce, or are creating new checkout experiences through kiosks and mobile devices, sellers can now more effectively run their business and service their customers.
These partners simplify the critical back-end of a scaling business by connecting Square-powered points of sale with their ERP, OMS, and CMS solutions.
By enabling sellers to sync sales, customer information, and inventory data using APIs or pre-built integrations, Systems Integrators help manage all aspects of a business’s operations.
The reseller program is designed for partners that work with clients to identify, recommend, and implement the right point of sale hardware and software.
This new solutions partner program should give Square another feature to impress on small businesses that its payment processing platform offers the most variety and flexible options for their business.
Retailers and online merchants can now visit the Square solutions partner marketplace to find solutions to help their businesses grow.
