Square Sellers United is an independent online community and platform that helps organize and empower businesses and
individuals who use the popular Square POS (re: squareup.com).
In addition, the SSU platform allows members to vote on which new features, changes, etc. they’d like to see Square
make and then as an official Square Partner, the SSU leadership brings the most voted issues/requests to Square directly.
If Square doesn’t act on a particular request or it’s too far out (in their plans), the SSU Development Team creates a
code-based solution ourselves using Square’s various APIs, as well as our own existing in-house technology (and solutions).
Finally, whichever features SSU does not develop (ie. because it’s not voted on enough) SSU members have
the option of self-funding that feature by using the very same Feature Requests section where members vote, which also allows
members to make low-increment pledge(s) similar to crowd-funding... with one major difference:
Members who self-fund/crowd-fund a feature (or solution), essentially become the owners of that technology and SSU pays them
a percentage of revenue based on how many members opt into using that particular feature (or solution).
SSU’s CODE-Installer - a custom software
installation technology that we created to
automatically install most of the cool tech (ie. SquareTech) and software/code-based solutions we create that
are powered by Square’s API and work with Square’s various POS versions and equipment.
It usually takes just 10-30 seconds for a single instance of our code/tech to automatically install. See the
How It Works page to learn more.

Who We Are
We’re a Chicago-based Technology Solutions company -
that specializes in creating high quality Native Mobile Apps, Responsive Websites, Web Apps, Software,
APIs, Frameworks, SDKs (software development kits for apps), etc.
We’ve been creating solutions for 20+ years and in that time we’ve
amassed a heck of a lot of technology, expertise, best practices, etc.
Our current digital IP Portfolio
is worth about $5M+. IP = Intellectual Property. That means all the
stuff we make that’s unique that can be used to create mobile apps, websites, etc. How do we know it’s
worth $5M+? Good question. Here’s that answer »
Yes, we’ve tried the VC-route and it wasted more valuable time than it helped. And, since we’re typically
2-5 years ahead of everybody, which has secured us some very big partnerships, we figured it was about time
we tried a different approach.
First and foremost, we’re almost like an extinct species. We make “Native”
Mobile Apps, whereas SO much of the tech industry centers around “Hybrid” Cross-Platforms.
