Do I need Wi-Fi at my venue to use Square?

What happens if I lose internet connectivity?

If you lose connectivity, you can use Offline Mode for accepting credit card payments. When operating in Offline Mode, we recommend the following:

  • Set a limit for card transactions taken offline under Per Transaction Limit.
  • Upload your offline payments within 72 hours. Once you’ve regained internet connectivity, payments will show as completed and will be visible from your online Square Dashboard.
