Add a Cookie Banner to Square Online with Cookiebot

Browser cookies help websites keep track of your visits and activity. A website might use cookies to keep a record of your most recent visit or to record your login information.

A cookie banner (or preference centre) is the consent management module on websites that allows users to give their consent to which cookies and trackers they will allow on their device. For example, in the European Union, websites and apps that store or access information on a user’s device (e.g. through cookies) must ask for and obtain their explicit consent to do so.

Here, you’ll learn how to add a cookie banner to your site using our preferred partner Cookiebot. You can also learn how to add a cookie banner to Square Online with third-party code so you may use a cookie banner provider of your choice.

Add a Cookie Banner with Cookiebot

Square Online allows you to add a cookie banner to your site with our partner Cookiebot. To add a Cookiebot cookie banner to your site:

  1. In your Square Online Overview page, go to Website > Site Preferences.

  2. Under Cookie Consent, select Set up cookie consent.

  3. Choose either a free or premium banner, and select Next to continue.

  4. Follow all provided prompts and select Save when finished.
