We’re experiencing issues that may affect your Square services. We’ll continue to update our status page with more information.


Navigate the Square Online Overview Page in Dashboard

The Square Online Overview page contains key information about your website and some additional tools to help you grow your business online.

Like other Overview pages in Dashboard, you can access the Square Online Overview page by going to your online Square Dashboard and selecting eCommerce > Online. Learn more about how to navigate the online Square Dashboard.

Below, you’ll understand what each link in the navigation menu means and what you can do to manage the different aspects of Square Online.

Note: If you have multiple sites in your account, you’ll see a line break in the navigation menu. This line break indicates that all tabs above it are for the specific site you’re viewing, and all tabs below it affect all of the sites in your account (regardless of the site you’re currently viewing).
