Tell us about your business.

We want to make sure you know exactly how Square can meet your business’s unique needs. Fill out the information below so we can provide specific information about how Square can work for your business.

If you do not have an official business name, enter the name you want on your receipts.

Your tax ID will be used for tax reporting purposes only. You can edit this information on your Square Dashboard at any time.

Looks like we need your full SSN.

We weren't able to verify your identity based on just last four digits, so we'll need your full social security number to enable you to start accepting payments.

Verify your identity.

We need you to answer the following questions in order to confirm your identity. These questions are based on information from your past that you should be able to answer quickly. If a question is not relevant to you, please select the “none of the above” option.

For your security, this step must be completed within ten minutes.

Link your bank account.

Link your bank account so we can deposit the funds you receive from card payments. Refer to your checkbook or bank website to get your account and routing numbers. Once your bank account is verified, card payments are deposited in 1 to 2 business days.

To verify this account, we will withdraw $0.49 and then refund the charge. Make sure you have at least $1.00 in your bank account to prevent your bank verification from failing due to insufficient funds.

Let's get you a free magstripe reader.

Your Square reader will arrive within 10 days. You can key in card payments manually until your reader arrives.

You can request a free magstripe reader at any time from your Square dashboard.

Enter your zip code to find the retailer nearest you. After buying your reader, visit squareup.com/redeem and we'll fully reimburse the cost.

Congratulations! Your Square account is now activated and ready for use.

We've confirmed your Square Reader order, and you'll receive an email from us when it ships.
