Square Marketing FAQs

Existing Campaign FAQs

Can I cancel Square Marketing campaigns?

You can cancel any automated marketing campaigns and blast campaigns with a voucher at any time. Update, Event Invitation and Product Announcement blast campaigns can’t be cancelled.

To cancel a campaign:

  1. Visit Marketing in your online Square Dashboard.

  2. Select the Active campaign you’d like to cancel > click Cancel.

  3. Select whether you’d like to still honour unredeemed vouchers, or cancel and invalidate them.

  4. Click Cancel Campaign.

Can I duplicate a campaign?

You can duplicate a previously completed campaign. To do so:

  1. Visit the Marketing section of your online Square Dashboard.

  2. Click Completed and select the campaign you’d like to duplicate.

  3. Click Duplicate in the upper-right corner.

  4. Complete, review and send or schedule your campaign.

Where can I search for rewards using a customer’s email address?

If you don’t see the option to search for rewards in-app, please be sure you are using an updated version of Square Point of Sale.

How can I change the business name or address in a campaign?

For the first campaign you send, Square Marketing will take the business name and address from your Business Settings. To update your business name after sending a campaign, you can do so from the campaign header under Business Name.

Please note: Changing the business name from Business Settings won’t affect what’s displayed in your campaigns. To modify the address that appears on a campaign, you’ll update it from the last campaign sent.

Payment FAQs

Can I add my Square Online Vouchers to a Marketing campaign?

Yes! You can use the vouchers from your Square Online site in your marketing campaigns. After you have created a coupon for your Square Online site, you can share the voucher to your customers with Square Marketing. To do so:

  1. Head to Marketing in your online Square Dashboard.

  2. Select Offer A Voucher > Design Campaign.

  3. Click Unique auto-generated code on the image of the voucher in the campaign preview on the left.

  4. Select Online use on the right side menu and input the Square Online voucher code you created under Voucher Code.

  5. Fill in the rest of the details of your voucher just as you did in your Square Online site. *Note: if you fill in any of these details differently than when you set up your original voucher in Square Online, these changes will not affect the terms of your voucher. To edit any details of your voucher, visit your Square Online Overview page.

  6. Once you’ve finished setting up your voucher campaign, click Select Audience in the top right.

  7. Select your voucher campaign audience.

Once you launch your campaign, customers will receive an email with your Square Online voucher code, which is only redeemable online.

Why wasn’t my customer’s reward automatically applied at the time of sale?

There are two ways your customers can redeem their rewards.

  1. Rewards need to be applied manually to a sale by looking up the customer’s associated receipt email address or 6-digit reward code. Your customer can locate the email address or 6-digit code associated with their reward in the email they received. They’ll need to present this information to you at checkout so you can locate and apply the reward.

  2. Your customer can elect to tie the reward directly to the payment card they last used at your business. The reward will be automatically applied when they use that same payment card during their next visit. If you have trouble, ask the customer for their 6-digit reward code or email to apply the reward manually.

Why is my customer seeing a pending charge on their bank statement for the full sale amount instead of the reward price?

When a reward is redeemed, Square will authorise a payment card for the full sale amount before the reward is applied. Some banks reflect this activity as a pending charge. These are not actual charges, but simply Square verifying that funds are available. Your customer will see the discounted sale amount posted to their account in the next few days.

I voided a payment that had a reward applied. Can the customer redeem the reward again?

Not at this time. Rewards are no longer valid and are considered used, if they were added to a sale that was voided. You can manually apply a discount to the customer’s next sale.

Integration FAQs

Why can’t my customers using Outlook see my campaign’s images?

Unfortunately, since Outlook doesn’t support the same formatting standards as most other email clients, images from your campaigns may not populate correctly for customers using their services.

Most popular email clients do support our standard formatting, so the majority of your customers are able to see your campaign’s images.
