    Default How to integrate SQUARE payment system?

    Zencart Version: 1.50
    PHP Version: 5.3.4
    Operating System: Mac Snow Leopard Server

    I currently use SQUARE for my business. It allows me to take a payment directly from client (card swipe) or type in card number by hand. Is there any modules or updates to Zen Cart that would allow the SQUARE setup and use? Pay Pal is $30/month. Just looking at my options for my store.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The best way would be to see if they have an API system that a module could connect to.

    Be careful with unsolicited advice via email or PM - Make sure the person you are talking to is a reliable source.

    Square does not have an API.

    It's not designed for consumer-not-present situations such as ecommerce.

    Default Square

    Has anyone tried or used square? I am very interested in getting it hooked up to my cart. I doubt it will be something I will need help with. I am looking for someone that can install it for me. I'm tired of a credit card billing service charging $600.00 in just fees every month.

    According to square's website, they don't currently offer an API for ecommerce websites.

    Just my luck. We are going to be using it in our shop, but I guess I&#39;ll have to stay with the crooks I have now for processing cards. Thanks...</p>

    You can manually enter data to square. They will charge 3.5% (plus $.15 per sale) versus the 2.75% for swipes. That is WAY cheaper than what you wind up paying for merchant services. I found that, being VERY diligent about debit versus credit transactions, I wound up paying 4.67% with all fees lumped together. One person paid over 6% because they didn't bother with the debit/credit.

    The problem is getting the data from Zen Cart in compliance with PCI et al.

    If Conor were still alive, I'm reasonably sure he would have made his manual card mod more secure.

    Default Re: Square

    I didn't figure out the percentage I have been paying, but my Wife told me we paid $600.00 last month just in fees and we're just a mom and pop outfit. If anyone figures out a way to make square work on the cart, I'll be his first customer.

    Thanks...
