An Update to Square Pricing

We're changing the rate for tapped, dipped, and swiped transactions from 2.75% to 2.6% + 10¢.

Beginning November 1, 2019, we are changing the U.S. rate for tapped, dipped, and swiped transactions from 2.75% to 2.6% + 10¢. We are making this change to better align our rates with industry-wide transaction costs. Like all payment service providers, for every payment Square processes, Square has to pay a set of fees that are both a percentage of the transaction and a flat fee. Our card-not-present (keyed-in) transaction pricing has always reflected this structure, and now our tapped, dipped, and swiped rate will as well.


We know a pricing change can feel complicated so we want to make sure you have enough time and information to understand this change.

  • You can visit our Pricing page to learn more about our rates.
  • You can visit our Pricing FAQ to help answer key questions.
  • You will receive an email and in-app/dashboard notifications with more details about how you are affected and so you are aware of the change.
