Get Started with Google Workspace for Square Online
Square partners with Google to provide a complete email solution for domain names known as Google Workspace. When you have a domain name associated with your website, you can create an email address right from your Square Online Overview page based on that domain.
For example, if you own ‘mybusiness.com’, you can create an email address like ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. This allows you to reach your customer-base efficiently with an email address they can trust. From a business standpoint, your audience will better trust an email coming from ‘email@example.com’ rather than ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. This is because emails from personal email accounts that are meant to serve as business emails are often associated with spambots and scams.
Owning an email address based on a custom domain name is an extra step many businesses take to elevate their brands. It helps others take their businesses seriously, and can also associate those businesses with longevity.
Set Up Your Email Address with Google Workspace
To experience professional email and get your free trial started, visit your Square Online Overview page. If you enjoy your trial, extend to the full version for $95/year (less than $8 per month).
Learn more details about initial setup below.
Access and Manage Google Workspace
When your setup is complete, you can log in to your inbox by either going to ‘gmail.com’, or ‘mail.google.com/a/mybusiness.com’ (making sure to replace the ‘mybusiness.com’ part of the URL with your domain name). You can also log in to your inbox right from your Square Online Overview page using the Google Workspace Dashboard link.
You might see a reminder to agree to the terms of service in your Admin Console the first time you load your Google Workspace dashboard after signing up (if you didn’t do so the first time). If so, just click the link, log in (using your same username and password), and go through the prompts in the Admin Console.
You may perform other actions from your Square Online Overview page such as changing your username, changing your password and setting up aliases.
Creating email aliases enables you to receive mail from different addresses through the same inbox. Each Google Workspace inbox you purchase through Square Online includes the option of creating up to 30 different aliases of that primary address.
