Can I accept Multiple Currencies with Square?
The ability to charge your customers in different currencies with the Square app is not available. You’re unable to change the country of an existing Square account, but if your business has multiple locations you’re always welcome to open a new account and select any supported country. The country of your account will dictate the currency symbol and currency formatting of your Square app. If you decide to create a new account, you’ll always be able to log in to your old account if you don’t disable it. But it may be helpful for record-keeping purposes to download your transaction history from your previous account.

Set Up a New Account
Once you’ve downloaded your previous account information, follow these steps to set up a new account:
- Sign out of the Square app on your device. If you have trouble, learn how to sign out here.
- Click Create Account > enter your information > select your preferred country.
- Note: You will not be able to reuse an email already in use by an active Square account. To reuse an email, you must first edit the email in use by your other active account or disable the account.
- Finish setting up your account.
Each country has a specific set of features. Learn which features are available in your country.
Transfer Your Item Library
If you have a large item library, you may want to transfer your library to your new account.
Note: Support for transferring item images, transaction history, customer information, employee roles and permissions, business and bank account details is unavailable.
