Link and Edit Your Bank Account

Link your bank account from your Dashboard or the Square app to have your money deposited within 1-2 business days.

Overview

If you have a multiple location business, each location can share a single bank account or you can link a unique bank account to each one.

You can link your bank account from your online Square Dashboard or the Square app to start receiving your funds on any one of our deposit schedules. If you already have an account linked, you can change it at any time so you can receive your funds where you need them.

There are a few things to note before you get started:

  • You will need to link a United States bank account to process payments using a U.S. Square Account.
  • Square requires a transactional bank account (an account that allows for both deposits and withdrawals) to support refunds or chargebacks. This means prepaid cards or online-only accounts (such as PayPal) aren’t supported at this time.
  • You will need your full routing and bank account number to link your bank account.

Before you receive your first deposit from Square, you will need to add a verified bank account to your Square account. You can start the verification process right from your Square Dashboard or Square App.

  1. Visit Account & Settings > Bank Accounts > Add Bank Account in your online Square Dashboard. If you are changing your bank account, select Change Bank Account.
  2. Enter the requested bank account information. You can find this information listed at the bottom of your checks, or you can contact your bank to confirm this information.

  3. Click Verify.

Note: If you are changing your bank account, you will need to enter your Square account password and check your email for a confirmation from Square. Click the link within 24 hours to confirm the bank account change.

  1. Tap: Three Horizontal Lines
  2. Tap Settings > Bank Account > Add Bank Account.
  3. Enter the requested bank account information. You can find this information listed at the bottom of your checks, or you can contact your bank to confirm this information.
  4. Click Continue.

Edit Your Bank Account from the Square App

  1. Tap: Three Horizontal Lines
  2. Tap Settings > Bank Account.
  3. Tap Change Bank Account.
  4. Enter your Square account password > Continue.
  5. Enter your new bank account information > Continue.
  6. Tap Done.

Check your email for a confirmation from Square. Click the link within 24 hours to confirm the bank account change.

The entire verification process can take up to 4 business days (excluding weekends and holidays). Square isn’t able to expedite the process.

Note: Until your new bank account is verified, we’ll continue to send deposits to your currently linked account. If you’d like to unlink your current bank account, contact us. This will allow your deposits to remain in your Square balance until your new account is verified.

If you’re using Instant Deposit or Same-Day Deposit, make sure you update your linked debit card any time you update your linked bank account on Deposit Settings to prevent funds from being sent to a previous account.

Receive Deposits from Square POS into Cash App

If you have a Cash App account, you are able to receive deposits from your Square POS account into your Cash App. You can do this using your Cash App Account and Routing number.

Note: This option is available for standard deposits only (not instant deposits).
