Enabling Clearpay with Square is free – there are no monthly fees or startup costs. The Clearpay processing fee is 6% + 30p per Clearpay order across all Square products that accept it.
Square sellers using Clearpay get paid the full amount at the time of purchase, minus a processing fee on the total order.
You only pay when you make a sale – there are no processing fees charged on the remaining instalments or if your customer makes a late payment.
Clearpay rates are fixed and do not vary by subscription type, hardware or custom pricing.
