Accept Payments on Square Online
Accepting payments with Square Online is simple. From your Square Online Overview page , you’ll see a few different payment processors you can connect to your site.
Accept Payments with Square
Square Online is automatically configured to use Square’s payment processor to accept payments during the checkout flow of your site. No additional setup is needed.
Accept Payments with PayPal
Note: Using PayPal requires an upgrade on your Square Online site.
With PayPal’s payment processor, you’ll have access to a more global customer base, allowing a wider range of customers to purchase from your website where their cards may not be accepted. To start, you’ll need a PayPal Business account. If you don’t already have one, convert your personal PayPal account to a Business account or sign up for a new PayPal Business account.
Other Payment Methods
You can still accept payments through Square Online from any supported:
Visa, Mastercard, American Express and JCB cards
eftpos chip cards
Square Gift Cards
Every supported card has the same flat rate. Business cards, prepaid cards, gift cards and rewards cards have no additional fees.
Buy now, pay later (BNPL) payment options – such as Afterpay or Zip – are not supported with Square Online.
Apple Pay and Google Pay are not currently supported with Square Online in Australia. However, you can accept Apple Pay and Google Pay for in-person payments.
Stop Accepting Payments
You can temporarily suspend accepting payments for orders from Square Online. To turn off online orders and suspend taking payments during checkout:
In your Square Online Overview page, go to Settings > Checkout or Shared Settings > Checkout.
Toggle off Accept online orders.
When this switch is off, items will still be visible on your site but won’t be available for purchase. This is helpful when you want to put your online business in vacation mode for any reason so new online orders don’t come in while you’re away. The toggle also makes it easy to turn things back on once you’re ready to get back to business.
