@Strachwsky Unfortunately there's not a "Pay Now" feature that's built into the Square Point of Sale app or default Online Store at the moment. While we have Square Appointments to take care of your booking needs, you'll still need to charge your customers through the Point of Sale app or with Square Invoices. 

 

@stickdog I'm definitely a proponent of a quick checkout style "Buy Now" option for customers, so I hear your frustrations. 

 

This feature request is picking up some momentum among sellers, so I'll be sure to let our Product Team know about the interest. 

 

Keep an eye out for changes in the future.

Hi there.

 

A pay now button can be developed with Square, but It really depends on your current setup. 

 

Did you already have your own E-Commerce solution? 

 

We have different options and integrations that might fit what you're trying to do. 

 

Check out this existing thread and let me know if anything helps: 

Launching an online store? You’ve got options with Square!

I already have a website.  I need a buy it now button.  Your website says you have this but it leads you down a rabbit hole of nothingness.

 

Please help me.  I need to take payments online on my website.

Thanks for clarifying. 

 

The Square E-Commerce API is a payment solution that allows you to use Square to take credit card payments online through your own websites. 

 

You'll need to be able to code or have a web developer code for you in order to make this work, as it requires you to build your own checkout solution using Square API from your own website. 

 

You can read up on more details about this and how to get started here: E-commerce API

Why make it so hard?  You need to simplify this like paypal does.  I don't code.

Hi, we are hosting some classes at the bakery and we use square to accept payments. Does square have a pay it now button or enroll button that would make it easy for our students to sign up and pay for an upcoming class?

Square is losing millions by not making a simple buy now template like paypal does that is customizable.

Most of us don't code.   I would be running thousands a month more through square if they had a customizable buy now button.  How is it possible that square still does not have one?
