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 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. Which 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.

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