Find answers to commonly asked questions about using Square.

Why is Square Point of Sale free?

The Square Point of Sale app is free because we believe small businesses should have access to powerful tools that help them grow. Businesses around the world have been using a free version of Square Point of Sale since 2010.

So how do we make money? Currently, we make money by offering card processing and other paid services in select countries.  We’re working to bring these services to new markets and will keep you updated on our progress.

Will I be able to use Square to process payments in my country?

Great question. Not at this time. We’re working to bring payment processing to more countries, but it will take some time. In the meantime, we wanted to introduce Square Point of Sale to people and businesses everywhere. We don’t have a specific timeline for availability yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we have more information.
