Square's Standard Deposit Schedule

With Square’s standard deposit schedule, deposits are initiated every weekday at 1 P.M. for payments taken Monday - Friday before 12 A.M. Melbourne time. Deposits for sales made prior to 12 A.M. Melbourne time will arrive in your linked bank account by the following working day.*

Note: If you have recently signed up for Square, it can take up to five working days for your bank account to verify, and link to your Square account. Learn more about linking your bank account.

After you activate a Square Point of Sale account and link a bank account, funds are automatically sent to your linked account as per our standard deposit schedule. Our standard deposit schedule is the quickest way to receive your funds.

With our standard schedule:

  • Payments are sent to your bank account by the next business day.
  • Deposits are not sent on Saturdays or Sundays.
  • Depending on your bank’s processing speeds, deposits will normally be available in your bank account on the same day they’re sent by Square.
  • Deposit cutoff and initiation time will adjust accordingly with daylight savings time.
  • Banking holidays may affect deposit timelines.
