Square Eyes Product Photos As Its Latest Service To Attract And Keep Merchants


Square is getting into...photography? The POS giant has added a new product to its lineup, giving merchants the chance to get professional product photos taken in order to drive ecommerce sales. Similar to what AirBnB did in its early days, sending professional photographers to host homes to take high quality pictures, only in Square's case they are charging customers for the privilege. I wonder if this experiment ends up becoming a free service for some number of products, or bundled with the website builder to attract merchants onto the still nascent ecommerce business.
