Preferred Provider: Use Square with the free version of Setmore

Use Square with the basic, free version of Setmore to take customer payments through your appointment calendar. You don’t need a Setmore Premium account to use this integration, but you will need both a basic Setmore account and a Square account ready to go.

Create delightful in-person experiences

With Square enabled for the Setmore mobile app, you can process a payment for any appointment on your Setmore calendar while making good use of a Square magstripe reader (which you can get for free when you sign up for Square) to swipe your customers’ payment cards.

When you sign up for Square, you can also purchase a contactless chip reader, then swipe, dip, or tap to take payments from your customers’ chip cards, or let them pay with Apple Pay or Google Pay, from your point of sale terminal.

Three phones show the in-app activation screens for using Square in Setmore.

Simply open the details window of an appointment and tap on Payment. Here you can add items or discounts to the service cost. When you’re ready to charge, tap “Next” and the Square app will open on your device so you can swipe the customer’s card to accept a payment! Once the transaction is complete, you’ll be seamlessly returned to your Setmore calendar.

Note: The Square integration does not currently support payments for class sessions in Setmore. You may still accept payments for 1:1 appointments and services. Support for class payments will be added at a later date.

Maximize convenience with online appointment deposits

One of the main benefits of the Setmore-Square integration is the ability to take customer payments from your public Booking Page. Customers can pay upfront, as they book their appointment, so your transaction is settled before they even come in for their service.

The Setmore Booking Page shows a payment screen.

Once the Setmore-Square integration is enabled, navigate to Settings > Payments > Booking Page. (In the mobile app, go to Accounts > Payments > Customer Booking.) Here you can enable Booking Page payments and make them required or optional for your customers at the time of Booking.
