Pay Invoices with Square

If you receive an emailed or manually shared invoice from a merchant using Square, you can pay it online using a supported payment card, Apple Pay or Google Pay.

How to Pay a Square Invoice

  1. To pay a Square Invoice, begin by clicking Pay Invoice in the invoice notification message.
  2. Fill in all required info: name on card, card number, expiration month and year and security code (CVV). Note: You can also pay using Apple Pay or Google Pay.
  3. Click Submit.

You can also opt to pay with a physical or electronic gift card associated with the business invoicing you. To do so:

  1. From your Invoice notification email, click Pay Invoice.
  2. Tap the arrow next to Pay By Card.
  3. Select Pay by gift card. Note: You can tap Check balance before proceeding in order to check the balance of the gift card being used.
  4. Enter the full gift card PAN.
  5. Select the amount you want to pay. Note: The amount entered can not exceed the balance of the gift card.
  6. Tap Charge.

We recommend paying your invoice within 30 days, but the merchant may include different payment terms. Make sure to read through the invoice thoroughly, and follow the merchant’s instructions. If the merchant has tipping enabled, you’ll also see the option to include a tip with your payment. You can add a tip of up to 50% of the invoice total.

Note: Paying an invoice with Square is secure. Invoices can be paid with any supported card and you won’t be charged a fee.

You also have the option to pay your invoice in person with the Square Seller.
