Technical Issues with Square Hardware

If you’re having trouble with your hardware, please visit the following Support Centre articles to troubleshoot:

Replacement Hardware for Square Stand, Square Register and Terminal

If any piece of your Square Stand Accessory Kit (USB hardware hub, power adapter and power cable) is damaged, please write in to our team to submit a warranty claim for these parts. If you have lost any of the parts or are outside of our warranty window (two years for Square Register, and one year for Square Terminal, Square Stand and the Square Reader), you can purchase a new Square Stand Accessory Kit by visiting our Shop.

To request replacement tools for lost items in your Toolkit, write in to our team.

Square Hardware Limited Warranty

Chip and PIN card readers

The Square Reader for contactless and chip and PIN is covered by a limited one-year warranty, as is the Square Stand Accessories kit, which includes a USB hardware hub, power adapter and power cable. If any pieces of your Square Stand Accessory Kit are damaged, please write in to our team to submit a warranty claim for these parts.

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 Square Reader, please follow these steps:

  1. Complete the warranty claim process.

  2. We’ll send you a replacement hardware unit, with any accompanying accessories. The replacement hardware should arrive in 5–7 days.

  3. Send us your old hardware within 14 days of receiving your new unit. Use the same box that your replacement unit arrived in and apply the DPD label we’ve provided via email. Square will pay for delivery both ways.

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

Square Stand

Square Stand is covered by the same limited one-year warranty, as is the Square Stand Accessories kit, which includes a USB hardware hub, power adapter and power cable. Contact our Support Team to submit a warranty claim for Square Stand or the Square Stand Accessory Kit. The replacement hardware should arrive in 5–7 days.

Square Terminal

Square Terminal is covered by the same limited one-year warranty as most of Square’s hardware. In addition to our standard warranty, we want to make sure that you can get back to business as quickly as possible, once your warranty claim is submitted, we’ll send your new Terminal to you.

If your Terminal is being shipped to a P.O. box, you may see a slight delay in delivery.

Contact our Support Team to start the warranty process.

Square Register

Square Register is covered by a limited two-year warranty. As always, we want to make sure you can get back to business as soon as possible, check out our Square Register troubleshooting guide for some tips. Contact our Support Team to start the warranty process. When your warranty claim is submitted, we will send your new Register to you with overnight post. 

Note: If you complete the warranty before 1:00 p.m. GMT, we will send your new Register via overnight post. This means that you should have your replacement Register on the next working day. If you complete your warranty after 1:00 p.m. GMT, we will send your Register the following day.
