[New] Square House Accounts

Hi Sellers! 👋


Let your frequent, trusted customers keep a running balance with you. Collect payment at a later time by sending an invoice, or even setting up automatic payments.




What’s new in this update?

With house accounts, you can deliver a more convenient experience by creating a running bill that customers can pay later with automatic invoices.   

  • Check out like any other sale.
    • Simply charge the purchase to the customer’s house account on your POS so the sale gets recorded and inventory gets updated automatically.
  • Get paid on time.
    • Set up recurring invoices to send on schedule so customers can easily pay their balance online with a credit card or ACH payment. For wholesale customers who buy in bulk, you can apply discounts to the whole invoice or individual items.
  • Manage and track accounts easily.
    • Set spending limits and lock, unlock, or archive accounts quickly from your Square Dashboard or point of sale.
