Incorporting Square POS

Recommended Posts

Square Register is not currently compatible with existing SquareSpace commerce, so I'd have to code it into our website.

Has anyone else had this issue, and been able to successfully connect the two?

You cannot connect Square to Squarespace. They are entirely separate.

If you want your online store to share the same data as your POS system, you'll need to do one of the following:

  • Build your commerce website with Square instead of Squarespace.
  • Run two completely separate systems (Square for POS and Squarespace for online), manually add the products to each system and then synchronise the inventory levels using a third party tool like Trunk.

The reason I'm asking is because customer service said you can incorporate it via coding. Thus I'm here

They are probably referring to the 'Square Buy Buttons'. These allow you to show a button that will take customers directly to a Square checkout. You'll find more detail about this on the Square website here: https://squareup.com/help/gb/en/article/7068-add-a-square-checkout-button-to-your-website

Personally I don’t recommend them as they aren’t very flexible or feature-rich.
