Flexible formats

Pick the format option that works best for your business—payment links, buy buttons, or QR codes. Share them through social media, email, text, or 
on a website.

Advanced payment features

Unlike basic payment apps, Square Online Checkout lets you track payments and fulfill orders through shipping and pickup. Your customers don’t need an account or special app to pay, and they can even earn rewards with Square Loyalty.

All kinds of businesses can take advantage of Square Online Checkout.


Accept donations, membership fees, or offer subscriptions. Use the basic subscription feature to offer automatic renewal or collect regular contributions weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually, or bi-annually.

Professional services

Writers, artists, therapists, and other professionals can use Square Online Checkout to easily accept prepayment for their services or automatically charge for monthly services.

Health care and fitness

Simplify your existing billing process. Let your clients pay for classes, sessions, and services by allowing them to enter the specific amount of their bill and submit payment online. No more paper checks to process.

Remarkably flexible and shareable.

Use options like pay links, buy buttons, or QR codes for whatever you’re selling and share them with customers in all kinds of ways.

Embed buy buttons 
on websites

Save your link as an embeddable buy button and easily put it on your existing website or instantly add eCommerce to your blog. Customize the text on buttons to reflect a specific action like, “Buy Now” or “Subscribe”. Even tailor the button color to match your brand.

Put QR codes on print pieces

Make scannable QR codes and place them on mailers, flyers, or signs to take customers directly to an online checkout page to pay on their mobile device. Accept remote and touch-free payments easily.

Share payment links in emails

Customize your checkout page, then copy and paste the link into emails, text messages, or on social media. With one click you can accept online payments easily from multiple channels.

Build with Square Checkout API

Checkout API lets developers easily integrate a pre-built, Square-hosted checkout page into any workflow with minimal coding. Flexible features and a wide range of payment methods make this the perfect solution for businesses looking to add Square payments.
