Square has introduced Square Market, a new online ecommerce marketplace for Square merchants to sell online. According to Square's description of Market, sellers are not charged a monthly, listing or setup fee for their online store in Square Market - just 2.75% per online sale. Items listed by Square merchants sync across their Square Register app and their online store.
The Wall St. Journal quotes CEO Jack Dorsey: "There's a blurring of the lines between offline and online commerce. "This is the next obvious step for us."
In an article titled "Square’s New Online Stores Could Make Twitter Where You Shop", Wired.com's Marcus Wohlsen writes "Square Market ... isn’t so much a destination—though Square does hope it will become one—but a platform-agnostic backend for social selling."
