Square Hardware Limited Guarantee

Square Reader is covered by a one year limited guarantee.

We want to make sure you’re back to business as quickly as possible. If you’ve already attempted troubleshooting common problems and you’re still having issues with your hardware, follow these steps:

  1. Complete the guarantee claim process for your Square Reader or Dock in our Online Shop.
  2. We’ll ship you a replacement, with any accompanying accessories. The replacement hardware should arrive in 2 - 3 business days.
  3. Send us your old hardware within 14 days of receiving your replacement. Use the same box that your replacement hardware arrived in and apply the DHL label we’ve provided via email after the claim has been completed.

Important: Make sure you return your old Square hardware within 14 days of receiving your replacement. Otherwise, we’ll assume you want to keep both units and charge the cost of the new hardware to your payment card on file.

Third-Party Hardware Guarantee Claims

If you have issues with third-party hardware accessories, contact the appropriate manufacturer for your hardware.
