Set Up and Manage Same-Day Transfer

Fast transfers are a standard with Square, with money in your bank account in one to two business days. With same-day transfer, you can get your money even faster on a recurrent basis. Customize your transfer and automatically send funds to your linked bank account at the end of your business day (any day of the week) for a fee per transfer.

Same-Day Transfer: The Facts

  • Timing: Your funds will be sent directly to your bank account at 5:15 p.m. PT/8:15 p.m. ET or 15 minutes after your close of day time. You’ll receive an email notification once your funds have been sent to your bank account. Funds that are not eligible for same-daytransfer will be sent to your linked bank account in one to two business days.

  • Fees: Same-day transfer costs a fee per transfer, in addition to Square’s processing fees.

  • Flexibility: You can set same-day transfer as your default transfer option for any day of the week – even weekends.

  • Limits: To use same-day transfer, you must have a minimum balance of $1 after Square’s fees. You can send payments as large as $10,000. If your daily balance exceeds $10,000, you’ll receive multiple transfers from Square. There is one exception: Individual payments greater than $10,000 won’t be sent via same-day transfer or instant transfer. When this occurs, these payments will be sent via next business day transfer and will be available within one to two business days to your linked bank account.
