Square Loans Eligibility FAQ
For eligible Square sellers, Square offers business loans to grow your business. You can check your business’s eligibility by going to the Loans tab of your Square Dashboard and keeping an eye on your email inbox.
If you don’t see an offer in your Square Dashboard, take a look at the key factors that may be affecting your eligibility below. Offer eligibility is based on a variety of factors related to your Square account, including payment processing volume, account history and payment frequency.

How do I become eligible for a Square loan?
Keep processing with Square – and consider the eligibility factors below as you process. Be sure to check out the Square Dashboard for more information about your current eligibility status. There’s no need to contact us or request an eligibility review. The review is automatic, and we will let you know through your Square Dashboard and by email if you are eligible for an offer – saving you time so you can focus on your business. We are unable to manually generate or predict offers and all sellers must qualify based on eligibility criteria.

When will I become eligible for another loan?
Square accounts – including accounts with an active loan – are reviewed for eligibility regularly. You don’t need to contact us or provide any additional information to become eligible for another loan offer. You can check your Square Dashboard at any time for more information about your current eligibility status.
Offers are not guaranteed and we are unable to predict when your business may receive another offer. New offers are not automatically extended when a certain percentage of an existing loan is repaid, but your business may become eligible for a new offer when your existing plan is closer to being repaid. In general, sellers repay at least 3/4th of their loan before receiving another offer. Loan offer details, as well as the timing of eligibility, may differ from your current Square loan.
