- Does Square have tools for complex businesses?
Square has solutions for businesses of all sizes. Our connected tools are built to scale with future-focused, connected tools. Enhanced, customer-friendly experiences help build deeper data and better customer relationships. And our open platform means you can connect to prebuilt integrations or build out your own with our APIs. Learn how Square works with larger, more complex businesses.
- What are merchant services?
Merchant services is an all-encompassing term that describes the hardware, software, and financial services needed for a business to accept and process payments — credit cards, debit cards, NFC-enabled mobile wallets, and other contactless payments — both online and in-store.
Just getting started and need a simple way to take payments? Your first Square Reader for magstripe is free when you sign up for an account. Additional readers are $10.
- Does Square have tools for professional services businesses?
Square built a suite of integrated tools to help service businesses save time so they can focus on growing revenue and delivering exceptional service to their clients. Square Appointments works for any business that needs appointment scheduling capabilities and a point-of-sale system. Use Square Invoices — a free, all-in-one invoicing solution that helps businesses request, track, and manage their invoices, estimates, and payments in one place — to get paid faster. And Square Messages is a platform designed to keep your client communication (texts, emails, receipts, invoices, feedback, checkout links, and more) in one place; you can send and receive texts online, and your clients experience more immediate customer service. Learn more about our solutions for professional services.
- How does buy now, pay later work?
Buy now, pay later, or BNPL, is a payment option that allows a customer to pay for a purchase over time in installments while merchants get paid in full. With Afterpay, Square merchants can let customers pay in four interest-free installments over six weeks.
- How does Square compare to other business software providers?
Square’s point of sale software and suite of tools makes it easy to sell in person, online, over the phone, or out in the field. As your business evolves, you can quickly add tools that help your business, from managing team members to adding devices and locations, all with a couple of taps. You can also track customers’ preferences and purchases to create more personalized marketing and loyalty programs to keep them coming back more often. We stand out with best-in-class hardware and an all-in-one platform.
