When you sign up to Square Appointments Free, you have the basics you need to manage bookings and payments for your business at no monthly cost for a single location. You will only pay Square’s standard processing rate of 2.6% + 10¢ when you process your client’s credit or debit card in-person.
For Square Appointments Plus or Premium, your processing fee for card-present (swiped, dipped, or tapped) payments will be 2.5% + 10¢ per transaction. For other types of transactions, whether it’s an online payment or the card is not present, you’ll follow Square’s standard processing rates.
|Payment Type||Free Processing Rate||Plus Processing Rate||Premium Processing Rate|
|In-person card transactions||2.6% + 10¢||2.5% + 10¢||2.5% + 10¢|
|Online payments (prepayments/no- show transaction fee)||2.9% + 30¢||2.9% + 30¢||2.9% + 30¢|
|Manually keyed-in or Card on File||3.5% + 15¢||3.5% + 15¢||3.5% + 15¢|
|Cash App Pay (Card-Present Transactions)||2.6% + 10¢||2.5% + 10¢||2.5% + 10¢|
|Afterpay||6% + 30¢||6% + 30¢||6% + 30¢|
Note: The rate of 2.5% + 10¢ for card-present transactions is only for payments processed through the Appointments app. If you use the Square Point of Sale app to process payments with your Appointments account, you will pay the standard processing fee of 2.6% + 10¢ for card-present transactions.
Square sellers using Afterpay get paid the full amount at the time of purchase, minus a processing fee on the total order. Enabling Afterpay with Square is free — there are no monthly fees or startup costs. You only pay 6% + 30¢ per when you make an in-person appointment or sale. There are no processing fees charged on the remaining installments or if your customer makes a late payment.
Important to Note
Afterpay rates are fixed and do not vary by subscription type, hardware, or custom pricing.
Afterpay acceptance is not yet available with Square Appointments Online booking sites.
