Square simplifies point-of-sale transactions and payment management for your business. By combining Square with Setmore, you can book customer appointments and take payments online and in-person.

Not only that, your Booking Page displays options to prepay using Apple Pay and/or Google Pay (G Pay), giving customers extra flexibility.

  • Your Setmore account: The Square integration is available to Setmore Free, Premium and Pro users in the US, UK, Canada and Australia.

  • Your verified Square account: Make sure you have completed the Square setup process, along with basic identity verification, prior to activating this integration. Without identity verification, you won't be able to take card payments. Learn more >

If you have any trouble entering information, keep these tips in mind:
