Sellers can leverage the app for taking high-quality and stylized pictures of their products from a mobile device and add to a Square item catalog or the online store.

Along with sellers enrolled in Square, anyone who wants to sell a product can seamlessly take a stylized picture of a product and sell with a Square Online Checkout link.

With the help of the Square Photo Studio app, sellers can improve customer experience without using a professional photo studio, and, thereby, save their time and money.

The recent move is expected to drive the company’s momentum across sellers worldwide. This, in turn, will strengthen SQ’s business globally.

We believe that Square’s expanding global footprint will continue to help win investors’ confidence.

Notably, Squarehas returned 6.6% on a year-to-date basis against the industry’s decline of 6.5%.
