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.

We have tried to update about every version since 2.0 came out and nothing has worked. Keep having to roll back. Pretty dissapointing

1 star is too much. I have shut down my web site because I can't accept cc. Is there another way to connect WC to Square??

This was working fine until 2 updates ago, everything started breaking... No matter how many times i tell it to NOT sync products with Square, it KEEPS DOING IT and also it keeps setting all my Variations to Manage Stock=Yes when i set them to NO... Totally useless as of 2 updates ago, i am now looking for a more useful extension to use Square as a payment gateway.

This is terrible ! what have you done? Wont sync to square, greyed out stock levels and only "managed by Square" ???? My whole system is now broken. Fix it please. I cant enter any new stock in Woo as it wont update or sync to square. If i change Prices in woo, it wont sync it to square so my website shows different prices to my shop. very annoying. And yes, i have checked the box making woocommerce my inventory management system, yet square is still in control. This is a disaster and caused many lost hours trying to fix the problem.

This is the second time this plugin was updated and it caused errors for everyone. And twice the system was forced to update. ( after the initial botched update) And again it screwed up my system. I hadnt updated because I was waiting for this to be fixed, and then I see it has been updated by force. Now my system is crewed again. This is not good for a big company like Automattic to force their updates on users. Let them decide... Add this to STOP any forced updates of plugins To disable all plugin updates (including forced pushes), you can use this snippet: add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', '__return_false' );
