  • Not for freedom lovers

    An app designed for those people looking to free themselves shouldn’t be forcing people into creating an account just to browse and shop. Hence why target and Walmart will win.

  • Wow! I was missing out before I had this app!

    Wonderful app. The interface is stellar and easy to navigate. The businesses also have a great interface through the app and are also easy to navigate. I really love Public Square and I can’t say I will ever buy beauty products in person again!

  • Great for big businesses, nothing for small biz

    I was excited when I first heard about this platform, I had been saying for years someone needs to develop a platform that promotes conservative businesses for the parallel economy. So when I heard about it I eagerly signed up and added my small business

    After using it for a few weeks, I’m honestly underwhelmed and quite disappointed. The app will send me advertisements from BIG corporate businesses, but there isn’t much benefit for local small businesses. I get that big businesses provide the most advertising dollars for the platform, and I think it’s better to support conservative big businesses over woke corporations…

    but better still is supporting small businesses that are the lifeblood of the American dream and traditional western family structures.

    • Hard to find what I’m looking for

      I was hoping for an alternative to amazon, where o could search for what I want to buy and get a list of all the items available through your retailers. The categories are broad and I spend a lot of time going to the websites to see if they have what I am looking for. It’s too time consuming. I like the idea but the execution needs work.

    • I want to try this app out but rejected?

      Hello. I am a hairstylist and I was recommended this app because of your values and was so stoked to see a community of people who we can support each others businesses. I am conservative and definitely love the idea here. But I go to add my business and realized it was about a week later I still didn’t see a response to my request. So I reached out to you all. I was sent this message.

      “We appreciate you supporting our mission as a company, however we have found that our values are not fully aligned with the company you represent. We cannot allow you to list your business on our platform at this time. Thank you for your understanding!”

      So in this message it doesn’t tell me what I said or did to not have “fully aligned values”. I want to know why. I have been waiting for a response and I truthfully am shocked I got rejected. I don’t understand how me working for my self in American and being married and selling my service in American is not the goal here? What is it that I could have done or said in my application that isn’t apart of that? Please explain so I can enjoy your app. I hate to even complain or say this but I really love the concept.

    • Good start

      I think the only thing that bothers me is the search feature. I don’t want to search for brands I want to search for items. I was trying to search for American made jeans but I couldn’t search for jeans I had to look at men’s clothing then click on every brand till I found one that sells jeans.

    • kindergarten compared to competitions

      Why do I need to sign up for an account just to view what’s for sale? The web version is really primitive. I want to see products, not fox, oan or whatever network that your company appears on. Feels like some web devs trying to show off their skills and not an e-commerce site trying to sell products, so Amazon and Walmart still get my money.

    • Finally a reliable directory of Patriotic businesses

      Thanks for providing this. So many of my friends, and I, can’t keep track of which businesses are anathema to our values, but at least we have a place to start looking for what we need when we have a need before slinking i to the commie hellholes.

      I cannot use this app unless I “sign up”. And give you my email. I’m not looking for another social media. And I don’t see why you’d need my email to look for conservative businesses. Other business apps I use don’t need my email. I’m not doing business with you. I just want to see where our conservative businesses are.
      Please make it so we don’t need to sign up.
      I’m out until that happens.

      I love and appreciate the fact that American patriots now have a place to shop. The local option is amazing as well. There are still a few glitches in the data, but there is a place where you can report them. So happy to have heard of this app on Fox News! ❤️🇺🇸

    • Why

      I have been an Amazon user for many years. I would like to consider using Public Square but I have concerns over the type of data that is collected by the app in the age of personal information security why does Public Square need to collect so much data from its users? For me that is a significant deterrent to using this app

      This app has great potential, but it’d be nice if each business in a category included a short summary about what they are/provide without the need to open the individual business listing.

    • Absolute trash—Compromised my Apple ID

      I only ever downloaded the app. Never opened it, nor registered for anything, and yet somehow this company got my contact info and began sending me emails asking me to verify my account/email. What account? I never registered anything! I didn’t even open the app once since downloading. And since clicking on the email sent to unsubscribe from their mailings (which I obviously never signed up for), I have begun receiving bogus texts and emails to my Apple ID linked phone number and email (which I am careful to NEVER give out—have protected it for 15 years of the App Store’s existence). I highly recommend that you do not download this app, if you value privacy and account security.

      I absolutely love this app! Could have been the best thing that has come from the “pandemic” .. I love shopping small biz with people who align with my values and morals. I’ve shopped One God clothing brand and an adorable baby boutique for a friends baby shower so far and the interaction with the stores were phenomenal . I will continue to look here first for shopping and services from now on!

    • Overwhelming

      While I absolutely LOVE knowing there are freedom-loving brands out there, I really wish this platform made it easier to shop. I’m always short on time and need to find specific things fast. I do not have the time to go through each brand to find what I’m looking for. I hate Amazon and the other big platforms, but they do make it easier and show multiple brands for the specific item I’m searching for. PLLEEEEEAAAAASSSSEEEE find a way for this to happen.

    • Growing pains

      Not a good experience as a small business owner. Lack of right-up-front transparency about e-commerce sites that can be linked to PS, as platforms like Etsy and Zazzle are not approved by the company. (I tried to sign up a month ago, so maybe this has been addressed now). I wasted a lot of time because I was unaware of this fact until I was on the phone with a rep, as I’d intended to purchase a marketing package.

      But PS isn’t hurting those platforms by not supporting businesses that use them. It’s hurting small biz owners like me who have parts of their business on them for lack of other options.

      So fed up with hopium being doled out to patriots —come HERE and do THIS and be around like minded-folks. All the big names have endorsed us. It’ll be great. Just what you’ve been waiting for. A haven in the madness of the world. Oh, wait. You can’t have your biz here because the platform you use doesn’t “align with our company values. Create another site” in your spare time on another platform we approve of.

      Yeah, no.

      - UI is sluggish
      - No Review system for business
      - Missing social network aspect
      - Should consider implementing store front like shopify and gofundme.
