WooCommerce Square

Description

Sync inventory and product data between WooCommerce and Square POS. Securely accept payments via the Square payment gateway.

Accept credit card payments easily and directly on your store

The Square plugin extends WooCommerce to allow you to accept payments via Square. Benefit from a PCI compliant payment processing option that meets SAQ A levels of compliance.

You can also use these advanced features:

  • Support for WooCommerce Subscriptions
  • Support for WooCommerce Pre-Orders
  • Allow customers to save payment methods and use them at checkout
  • Use an enhanced payment form with automatic formatting, mobile-friendly inputs, and retina card icons

Sync your product catalog with Square

You can sync your product data automatically between WooCommerce and Square.

  • If you sell mainly online, you can choose WooCommerce as your system of record. This will push the WooCommerce product name, inventory, prices, categories, and images to Square. Note that inventory will still be fetched periodically from Square and you must refresh inventory in WooCommerce before editing.
  • If you sell in multiple locations and online, you can choose Square as your system of record. This will pull product name, inventory, and prices from Square into your WooCommerce catalog. Product images will also be synced if not already set in WooCommerce.

Installation

You can download an older version of this gateway for older versions of WooCommerce from here.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To
automatically install WooCommerce Square, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu, and click Add New.

In the search field type “WooCommerce Square” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can install it by clicking Install Now, as well as view details about it such as the point release, rating, and description.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our plugin and uploading it to your web server via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Updating

Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

FAQ

Does this require an SSL certificate?

Yes! An SSL certificate must be installed on your site to use Square.

Haven't even launched, but when Woocommerce Square is active, all my of my product variations set to "Manage Stock" and show up as out of stock, and I am unable to change. I don't care about my products synching to Square… just want to accept payments.

I've had non stop issues with this plug in. Just doesn't process transactions. Much better off using Paypal for WooCommerce or Coinbase Commerce.

so many problems, so little time. it simply doesnt process credit card transactions. i keep upgrading to new version hoping something gets fixed but they actually break more stuff which i didnt think was possible.

Does not process any payments at all. No error msgs recorded in the logs, frontend error only states "An error occurred, please try again or try an alternate form of payment." even tested on a stock WP/WOO install with no mods... nowt happens! Other payment gateways work.... no help from WP or Square

This plugin was great at first and then with the last few updates it has tuned into a giant dumpster fire. It has destroyed my inventory count numerous times. It marked 350 products out of stock in woo that were in stock, and marked things that were out of stock in stock.. The square plugin takes control over your inventory and the only way you can change it is through the app which is so stupid or you can go into the product untick a box, save it, and then edit the quantity and save again. WHY?? WHY??? If that's not enough when you attempt to tell it that you want woo to hold your inventory it gives you the middle finger and then decides its master of all again. It don't care about what you want or your feelings. Horrible, the only way I was able to fix my site was to delete the plugin. Never again. I would rather export out my product as a CSV file and import it into square to use for vending then turn on this piece of poo again.
