Use Square Pay for Online Orders

Square Pay provides a secure checkout solution for businesses using Square Online or Square Payment Links, allowing buyers to save and reuse their payment details when ordering online from your business. The saved information is linked to the mobile phone number they enter during checkout, and includes their name, email, address, and card details. After a buyer opts in to Square Pay, they can access their saved information from their Square profile to quickly order from any Square Online site or Square Payment Link in the future. Setup is easy, and buyers can update or delete their information at any time.

Square Pay provides benefits including:

  • Higher customer retention: Customers that use Square Pay have a 1.5x* higher retention rate compared to customers who do not use Square Pay.

  • Faster checkout: Customers who use Square Pay checkout 2.5x** faster than those manually entering credit card information.

  • A secure, built-in digital wallet: When customers checkout online, they have a digital wallet they can trust to help keep their payment information secure.


Note: Square Pay is a buyer-facing feature that can't be disabled. This built-in digital wallet can help your customers checkout quickly and securely, and is supported on all Square Online sites and Square Payment Links.

Buyer First-Time Setup

When making a purchase from a Square Online site or Square Payment Link, buyers will be able to save their payment information by choosing the Square Pay option during checkout and entering their mobile phone number. They'll then be able to save their contact information, shipping address, and preferred payment method to their Square profile, and receive an email confirmation with details on how to access their saved information on future orders.

Use Saved Payment Information

Once a buyer opts in, they’ll be able to use their saved payment information on any Square Online site or Square Payment Link. Here's how it works:

  1. The next time a buyer checks out from a Square Online website or Square Payment Link, they can enter their phone number and the system will recognize that the buyer has a Square profile with their Square Pay information.

  2. The buyer will be prompted with a six digit code that is sent to the mobile number associated with their Square profile.

  3. Entering the code will auto-complete the rest of the checkout fields with their saved profile information.

If a buyer prefers not to use the saved information, they can simply close the code pop-up window and complete the checkout fields manually. They can also use the Edit links option to make changes to billing information after entering the confirmation code.

Update Square Profile Information
