Send Digital Customer Contracts with Square Appointments

With Square Appointments , you can automatically send digital contracts for free once a new appointment is booked with your business by setting up contract templates from your online Square Dashboard.

Note: If you are not subscribed to Square Appointments Premium, you can still manually send digital contracts for free in the Contracts section of your online Square Dashboard, but they won't be automatically attached to Appointment bookings.

Create Contract Templates

Create a custom contract template or customise an existing template to fit your unique business needs, such as COVID-19 liability waivers or general service agreements. This will allow you to easily and safely receive and track customers' signatures and agreements.

You can also create custom contract fields in your contracts to collect specific information from your customers. Learn more about creating custom contract fields in our Support Center.

Before you send your customers a contract, you will need to create a contracts template.

  5. Click Save.

To use one of the existing templates from Square

  2. Click Templates.
  3. Under Customise an existing template, select the Square template you want to use and click Create template or Create contract.
