  • What is a payment link?

    You can create a payment link from the Payment Links section on the online Square Dashboard or from the Payment Links add-on in the Square POS app. There, you’ll choose either Collect a payment, Sell an item, or Sell classes or tickets. Enter a title for your link and the amount you’re charging for an item or collecting as payment. If an item is from your library, the price will pre-populate. After you save your payment link you can then choose to format it as a buy button or generate a QR code, depending on how you want to share it or get it in front of your customers, clients or donors.

    When the recipient of your link clicks on it, or if you’re using a QR code and they scan it, they’ll open a secure online checkout page where they can submit payment. This page can be customised with your business name or logo. You can also add custom form fields to the information displayed on your checkout page, as well as customise the button colour and button text.

    There is no monthly fee for using Square Payment Links. You’ll only pay Square standard eCommerce processing fees of 1.4% + 25c + VAT per transaction for EU and EEA cards or 2.9% + 25c + VAT per transaction for UK and non-EEA cards, and you can accept a variety of payment methods, including Apple Pay, Google Pay, Square Pay and card payment. Upon completion of a transaction, funds are transferred to the bank account you have linked to your Square account.

  • How do I share a payment link?

    You have a number of options when it comes to sharing payment links. Easily paste a pay link in an email or a Whatsapp or SMS message and send it to a group of recipients all at once. All it takes is one link and you can collect payment from multiple people for the same item or service. Or post a link on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and turn those social media sites into a payment gateway. Payment links can be saved as buy buttons that you can embed on an existing website or blog to quickly introduce an eCommerce component to those online destinations. You can also format your pay links as a QR code that you can print on signs or leaflets that customers can scan with their phone and get taken directly to a mobile-ready payment page.

  • Is Square Payment Links secure?

    All Square products, including Square Payment Links, run on the Square payments platform. From the time a customer uses a credit or debit card or enters their information into our solutions, payment data is encrypted until it reaches the Square processing environment. Our proprietary tokenisation scheme ensures that unencrypted payment data never touches your device or application. In addition, Square complies with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), which is a standard put forth by the five largest credit card companies to help reduce costly consumer and bank data breaches.
