Get Started With Square Card

Square Card is a free business expense card that is connected to your Square balance. Take a payment, and the money you earn is reflected in your balance. You can spend that money with your Square Card anywhere internationally that Mastercard® cards are accepted (including in person, online and at ATMs).

Spending Limits

The maximum you can spend using a Square Card is $10,000 per transaction, $25,000 per day, $50,000 per week and $150,000 per month.

 Please note: Daily limits reset at 5:01 P.M. PST (12:01 A.M. UTC), weekly limits are reset on Sunday at 5:01 P.M. PST (12:01 A.M. UTC) and monthly limits reset at 5:01pm (12:01 A.M. UTC) on the last day of each month.

If you’re using your Square Card to withdraw cash, the maximum amount which can be withdrawn at an ATM is $500 per transaction, $1,000 per day, $2,000 per month.

When withdrawing funds from an ATM, the ATM will probably state your balance is $0.00. This is incorrect. You can check your available funds from the balance section of your Square app.

Please note: Square does not charge you any ATM fees, but ATM providers may charge you a fee when you make withdrawals.
