With Square Contracts, you can create and send contracts right from your online Square Dashboard and Square Invoices app. You can use contracts to establish clear service agreements with your customers, secure digital signatures and help protect yourself against potential payment disputes.
Build Contract Templates
You can build custom templates with your business-specific information to save time and easily update any future contracts.
|Credit card authorization
|This contract template gives you authorization to store a customer’s card information and charge it as agreed upon. Use this for repeat customers or subscription services. Once a customer signs and submits this contract, their card information will automatically be added to their Customer Directory profile under Card on File.
|Set clear expectations with your customers about your service.
|Sale of goods
|Set clear expectations with your customers about your physical or digital products with this template.
|Completion of services
|Use this template once your business completes any services sold to a customer. This agreement helps you obtain written acknowledgement from your customer that your services were successfully completed as described. It can also provide added protection during a payment dispute process.
|Confirmation of delivery
|Use this template to obtain written acknowledgement from customers that the products they purchased were successfully delivered as described. This agreement can provide added protection during a payment dispute process.
Note: Square Contracts only provides sample templates for you to create your own contract. Square does not provide any legal advice, and we do not guarantee or advise that any contract is suitable for your purposes or enforceable in any jurisdiction. Review the Square Contracts Terms and Conditions.
Create a contract template
Build your own contract template or edit one of the predefined templates from Square to meet your business needs.
Note: You can copy and edit a standard template to create a new custom template. Your new templates will be saved under Custom templates and in the template selector of your Contracts page.
Develop Contract Clauses
Use the clause library to create and manage a set of custom clauses you can add to any contract or template.
Contracts support two different types of clauses: default clauses provided by Square and custom clauses created by you. There are three different types of custom clauses you can create:
Library clauses: Create a custom clause in your clause library to add to any templates or individual contracts. You can only create, edit or delete library clauses from within the clause library.
Template clauses: Custom clauses created for specific custom templates.
Contract clauses: Custom clauses created for individual contracts.
As you add clauses, you can edit, duplicate or delete your custom clauses and use the search bar to navigate your clause library.
Use Custom Contract Fields
Custom contract fields are available with an Appointments Premium or Invoices Plus subscription. With custom contract fields, you can choose what information you want to collect from your customers, like addresses, phone numbers or contract-specific details.
