You can take cards and record cash payments over the phone with Square using a feature called Virtual Terminal - no Square hardware required! With Virtual Terminal you can accept payments from your computer.

Here is how to get started with Virtual Terminal from your online Square Dashboard:

 

  1. Go to Virtual Terminal > then click Take a Payment.
  2. You can either select Quick Charge to charge your customer a single pound amount or select Itemised Sale to add an item, modifier, discount, and tax to the sale. 
  3. Add an optional note to the sale. Note: This will be visible on the digital receipt and can help to identify the transaction.
  4. Under Payment Method, select Manually Enter Card > enter the card details provided by your customer.
  5. Click Charge.

 

All of the following information is required to process a card payment over the phone:

  • Complete 16-digit card number
  • Expiry date
  • Security code/CVV

 

If any piece of information is entered incorrectly, the payment will be declined. 

 

You can read more about Virtual Terminal fees in our Support Centre and how to verify payment information here

 

If you are collecting payments remotely, you can also send an invoice or share a checkout link to your customer.
