|Add brand color profiles with one click|
It’s now quicker and easier to apply brand colors to a site. Color scheme presets based on sellers’ selected brand colors can be instantly assigned to sections using new 1-click color palettes.
|Get the look you like by previewing section layouts|
When a new section is added to a site, sellers can now click through and preview each layout on the page before applying it.
|Customize self-serve ordering instructions|
Edit the banner message shown when a customer scans a QR code to place an order. Sellers can also provide further instructions after the customer submits their order.
|Start collecting service fees on self-serve orders|
Sellers can now add a service fee to orders placed using the QR code-based contactless ordering feature. Specify a flat fee or charge a percentage of the order total.
Talking Squarely Podcast
Season One of the Talking Squarely podcast brought together independent business owners for frank discussions about running a business, decision making, and more. This candid series is available on Spotify, Apple, Google, and Stitcher.
The Future of Restaurants and Future of Retail reports
Square developed the Future of Restaurants and Future of Retail reports to give sellers a snapshot of what businesses are investing in and what’s working.
To uncover these insights, we collaborated with Wakefield Research to survey 500 restaurateurs, 500 retailers, and 1,000 consumers across the U.S. Additionally, we spoke to Square sellers and industry experts to share how retailers and restaurateurs are facing challenges, embracing innovative solutions, and forging new paths forward in 2021.
These two reports are filled with inspiration, tactics, and tools that can help set up sellers’ business for future success and can be a great resource for partners to reference.
The Square Online Affiliate Program
As a new Square Online affiliate, you can earn $50 for subscription plan purchases and an additional $50 when a new seller you refer makes their first sale via their new store. The program offers a 30 day referral period. Some restrictions do apply, so please review the payout details.
