Set Up Item Subscriptions in Square Online

Note: Make site items subscribable by upgrading your Square Online site.

With Square Subscriptions, you can make your items subscribable and sell them on your Square Online site, enabling buyers to automatically order them on a recurring basis (e.g. monthly). Start by simply creating a subscription plan, then attaching that plan to your site item.

Note: If you sell non-physical items with Square Online like memberships, be aware that Subscriptions doesn't currently support an entitlement feature (e.g. if a gym offers five classes per month as part of a membership package, Subscriptions won't keep track of how many classes a subscriber has already redeemed).

Learn more about getting started with Subscriptions in Dashboard for information on creating a subscription, or check out the Square Subscriptions FAQ for details on benefits, features and more. You can also learn more about items and categories in Square Online.
