Square just announced the launch of Square App Marketplace, which is basically what it sounds like - a place for sellers to discover business apps that sync with Square accounts.

"With this addition to our service, sellers can easily discover and connect to all types of business applications that work seamlessly with Square," a spokesperson for the company tells WebProNews. "In the last year alone, tens of thousands of sellers have accessed our integrated apps. From Square App Marketplace, all sellers can now easily find and learn about these useful tools that integrate with their Square Register. Square App Marketplace also offers developers and partners a channel to more effectively showcase their integrated apps and appeal to Square sellers."

Square has added integrated apps from Intuit QuickBooks, Xero, Stitch Labs, IFTTT, TaxJar, SumAll, Fresh KDS, Shopseen, and ShipStation since launching its software partner program a year ago.

Beyond such partners, however, any developer can create apps for sellers for the Marketplace.

"Square is making sophisticated, big-business tools simple, easy to use, and available to anyone," the company says. "Independent sellers are increasingly adopting Square Register at the counter for its intuitive interface, smart analytics, continuous updates, and simple processing fees. Square products focus on making it easier for sellers to run and grow their business."

Earlier this week, we learned that Square is also testing a payroll solution for businesses, starting in California.

The company recently raised a new $150 round of funding at a $6 billion valuation.
