Accepting Square Payments via the MassageBook Desktop Site

If you have the Square POS app installed on your device, you can use your Square card reader on with the full MassageBook desktop site on a tablet or phone. When you checkout transactions in MassageBook on a desktop or laptop computer, you'll be prompted to manually enter the credit card number, as Square card readers are not compatible with desktops or laptops. 

  1. Download and login to the Square POS mobile app on your mobile phone or tablet. Ensure your device and operating system are compatible with Square
  2. Navigate to and login to your MassageBook account on your tablet or phone.
  3. If you have the Square POS app installed on your device, you'll see the option for Square on the Payment Method page when checking out an appointment. 
    Note: If you do not have the Square POS app installed, you'll select Charge and manually enter the payment information.

    Note: You will not see your business' Square Products Menu here. Square is the payment processor, meaning MassageBook is sending Square a total amount to be paid by a Square payment method. When you select Checkout with Square, MassageBook is handing off the sale to your Square POS app to be paid.
  4. Square will serve up their Square POS payments page. Use your Square device if charging a card, or select from another Square payment method and complete checkout. If you are using a Square bluetooth card reader, ensure that it is configured in your POS app prior to checking out in MassageBook.  

  5. If tips are enabled in your POS app, they'll be offered up as normal during check-out. The checkout flow is Square's, so it should look just like what you're used to.

  6. Choose a square receipt option as normal, and select New Sale to be routed back to your MassageBook account. New Sale must be selected for the appointment to register as checked-out in MassageBook.
