The Square Seller business provides products and services that helps sellers start, run, and grow their businesses and participate in the economy. The foundation of our offerings is a full service, managed payments offering and extends to include point-of-sale software and services that help sellers make informed business decisions on their orders, inventory, locations, employees, and customers. We have grown rapidly to serve millions of sellers that represent a diverse set of industries and sizes, and span geographies including the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
Much in the same way that Square revolutionized basic payment processing, Square’s Vertical POS products are disrupting the payments and workflow systems that power more-sophisticated businesses. Our Vertical POS products are disrupting legacy on-premise solutions by providing a one-stop-shop for our sellers to both take payments and run their business, in-person and online. Today we serve restaurants, retailers and those who sell their time, and we are building a remarkable suite of products that owners can trust to serve their specialized needs, so that they can get back to focusing on what is most important: growing their business.
