PCI and EMV compliance

Our hardware and software are compliant with PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and EMV regulations. We take on the burden of staying compliant, which means you don’t have to worry about assessment fees or potential expensive data breach fines.

End-to-end encryption

From the time the customer dips or swipes a credit card, the data is encrypted until it reaches Square’s processing environment. Customer data never touches the seller’s servers. And it’s all preconfigured, with no additional steps necessary.

Dispute management

We have a dedicated disputes team to deal with your credit card issuer for you. We’ll ask for the documentation we need and take care of the rest with no additional fees.

Fast deposits

Get your money faster with Square’s deposits as soon as the next business day.

Fraud detection

We use machine learning to analyze every payment in our ecosystem. It enables us to prevent fraud on sellers’ behalf, regardless of the payment volume they are processing.

Easily make informed decisions with a complete view of your inventory, customers, and products across all of your online, in-app and in-person sales.

“Square offers us a way to think outside the box in terms of what’s possible for transactions and experiences in-Shack. We’re freed from the restrictions put on us by legacy products, and the Square suite of tools enables a variety of new opportunities.”
