Square up is now integrated with the Multi-vendor Marketplace app for Shopify. This integration will help your sellers to connect their Square POS to the admin’s Shopify store. Thus, the marketplace sellers can manage products, inventory, pricing at a single location.
Squareup is mainly a Free mobile POS app developed for Android applications. It offers the simplest way to accept credit card payment from customers. Thus, the sellers who are selling products using Square POS can connect their stores to the admin’s Shopify store.
With the Squareup connector, sellers selling on Square POS can auto-sync their products with the admin’s marketplace. Also, the sellers can import their products from Square POS to the admin’s marketplace. Accordingly, inventory will be managed at both the ends once an order is created/updated for the seller’s product at Square POS or at Shopify.
