Three ways to add online payments.

Custom

Create a payment experience that looks like the rest of your site, with Square Payment Form and Transactions API.

Pre-built

Save time by integrating Square Checkout, a pre-built workflow hosted on Square’s servers.

Plug-in

Connect using existing integrations for WooCommerce, Magento, Zen Cart and more—without writing any code.


Build a custom online payment workflow.

Square Payment Form provides secure, hosted components for payment data like card number and CVV, while enabling you to make it your own. It’s designed to help buyers enter their card data accurately and quickly. It’s also designed to ensure PCI compliant payment processing: Card data is collected securely and tokenised, never hitting your servers.


Do more than take payments.

We provide a platform for commerce, not just payments. Associate transactions with itemised orders, products, customer profiles and more. Configure product catalogue and inventory counts to automatically sync between online properties and Square Point of Sale.


Focus on building your site. We’ll handle the payments.

PCI compliance

Our online payment APIs are compliant with PCI-DSS regulations. We take on the burden of staying compliant, which means you don’t have to worry about assessment fees or potential expensive data breach fines.

Dispute management

We have a dedicated disputes team to deal with the bank for you. We’ll ask for the documentation we need and take care of the rest with no additional fees.

Fast deposits

Get your money faster with Square. We deposit funds into your bank account as soon as the next working day.

Fraud detection

We use machine learning to analyse every payment in our ecosystem and continuously innovate in fraud prevention.

Square Online Payment APIs and SDKs are free for developers to use.

Square charges a processing fee on card payments.

2.2%

Per transaction

Custom rate

Custom pricing packages may be available for large businesses depending on payment volume, average transaction size and more. We’d love to have a conversation about it.
