Re: What does the "Invalid location" error mean? Is it because I'm outside the US?

Hi @ibay770

 

As mentioned in previous posts above, spoofing or faking geolocation violates Square's Terms of Service.

 

You're only able to accept payments within the country that you activated your account.

Invalid location

This reply was created from merging an existing thread: Invalid location

 

Why does my card reader keep telling me invalid location?

Re: Invalid location

well, let's start with the obvious.

 

1. where are you?  are you inside the country that you registered your Square account with?  If you created a USA Square account it can only be used within the GPS location of the united states.

 

2.  What hardware do you have?  and where did you buy it?  The contactless chip readers are county specific, i.e. the Canadian one won't work with an American account and vice versa.

Hi @Stevebarrel! Welcome to the Community.

 

Is your account registered under an Australian account and the hardware purchased from Australia as well?
