Subscription Payments with Square Online Checkout Links
With Square Online Checkout, you can set up one checkout link with the subscription feature enabled. Instead of using Square Invoices for recurring payments, the subscription checkout link can be used to accept weekly, monthly, quarterly or annual payments from multiple customers with a single checkout link. You can also self-select which specific checkout links your customers will be able to pay through. For example, use donation links for accepting monthly payments from donors and supporters.
Send your customers a subscription checkout link through an email or Square Marketing campaign, or let your customers pay at their convenience by posting the link on social media or your blog. There is no monthly fee for using Square Online Checkout links for receiving subscription payments. You’ll only pay Square standard eCommerce processing fee of 1.4% + 25p for UK cards per transaction and 2.5% + 25p for non-UK cards per transaction.
To create subscription payments from your computer with Square Online Checkout:
From your Square Online Checkout page, select Create a link.
Choose either Collect a payment or Accept a donation.
Enter a name for your link that’ll be displayed to the customer. If prompted, enter the amount you want to charge.
Accept recurring payments by choosing the frequency you want to collect them (e.g. weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.).
Select Advanced settings to toggle on Allow buyer to set the price (best when accepting donations). You can also Allow one time payments, which will give your customers the option to choose whether they’d like to pay for their purchase once or sign up for a recurring payment plan.
In Advanced settings, add two optional custom fields that can be used for whichever fulfilment needs you may have (e.g. collecting delivery address, coffee flavour choice, etc.). Whatever you enter as the custom field title will be requested from the buyer on the checkout link.
Select Save to create the checkout link, and select Copy to share the link anywhere.
When you create links to collect payments, the new subscriptions will appear in your Dashboard’s Square Order Manager with your other orders.
