Can I stay exclusively in off-line mode for a period of time?

I’m going to an event that has no service this weekend. In the past, if I have not had service, the reader will try to connect, sometimes for several minutes. Instead of this, I would like to be able to run a credit card offline in one swipe if service is not available.  I do understand that I would be running the risk of running bad credit cards. Yes Does anyone know if this is possible? Thanks

If you put your device in Airplane mode, it will force you into Offline mode.  Or you can manually turn off both your Wifi and cellular services.

Hi @LTH! GlassDale is right, you can use Offline Mode to take payments without internet. But keep in mind your device must connect to the internet within 72 hours so that the payments can be processed. You can read more aboutOffline Mode in the Square Support Center.

 

If you have any other quesitons reply here!
