How do I get certified for Square Projects?

NOTE: This article is for designers and developers who wish to get certified for building Square Online store websites. Square is a different product and company than Squarespace. If you are interested in learning more about Squarespace, please see this article.


99designs by Vistaprint has partnered with Square to provide their clients (called "sellers") with a way to quickly and easily hire a professional to help build their Square Online site. To ensure the best possible experience for Square sellers, it is very important for all certified Experts to have proven experience with the Square product.

Right now, Square is only available to customers in the following countries:

  • United States
  • Canada
  • Japan
  • Australia 
  • United Kingdom
  • Spain
  • France

If you do not live in one of these countries, you will need to have a VPN in order to work on Square Online sites. Even with a VPN, it can be difficult to work with Square clients if you are not located in one of the countries listed above, so you may want to wait until Square expands to your country.

If you are interested in being matched to Square clients and projects, the first step is to fill out this waitlist form. It will ask about your previous experience with Square and other website builders to help us understand your current skill level. You'll also be asked to provide links to sites you've built. If you don't have any experience with Square, but wish to learn, we have an opportunity for you to design some sample sites in order to learn the product and earn your certification. Our team will review your information and portfolio and let you know the next steps based on the experience you already have with Square. We usually review these within 10 business days.
