How Square compares
Choosing the best payment processing solution can be confusing. So we broke down the different options for merchant services (accepting credit cards), from banks to ISOs to Square. It’s a big decision that can cost (or save) you thousands of dollars, so we want you to be as informed as possible.
Accept all major cards and get deposits as fast as the next business day. Connect a Square Reader to your device or slip an iPad into Square Stand to take payments at our standard rate. Or sell with Square Register or Square Terminal for 2.6% + 10¢ per tap, dip, or swipe.
Per Swipe, Dip, or Tap
Get a custom rate for your business
We can create custom pricing packages for some businesses that process more than $250K in card sales and have an average ticket size over $15. If that’s you, get in touch—we’ll even review your current statement with you. An average ticket size under $15 is unlikely to qualify for a custom rate.
“We’ve never had any problem with the consistency of Square’s performance or the deposits or anything else. They continue to just make improvements and add features I didn’t even know I needed until I used them.”Casey, BANG Salon, Seattle, WA
