Square

Setting Up Square for Foxy

  1. Create your account here.
  2. Go to the Payment Settings page in the Foxy administration.
  3. Once logged in, make sure your store is set to “Live Servers”
  4. Go to the Accept payments using your Square account option, check the box, and click the Connect to Square button.
  5. Sign into your Square account. Allow the app access to the Square account.
  6. Once returned to the Foxy admin with Square successfully connected:
    • Check the show credit card form box,
    • Select the Payment location (these are the locations as you have them configured in your Square account)
  7. Save the updated payment settings

If you're already using an integration that shows a credit card input on the checkout, you'll need to disable that in order to show the Square credit card input.

Please note that when using the Square option, you won't be able to have a gateway enabled under the Let Customers Pay with a Credit or Debit Card option, since the Square option shows a credit card form within the checkout already, and only one is allowed on the checkout at a time.

Customer Deduplication & Privacy Considerations

Per Square’s direction, we have added Square's customer deduplication functionality for guest customers as well as non-guest customers. This is generally a helpful thing, as you can use your customer records in Square for a variety of things; and if a customer checks out multiple times in Foxy as a guest, they'll only show up once in Square.

It's important to understand, however, that there's no email verification or other authentication for guest checkouts in Foxy. Though very, very unlikely to be an issue, we do want to make it clear that just because two orders in Square may show as being from the same customer, it doesn’t mean the same person necessarily placed both orders. If a customer says “Hey, I just placed an order ID12345, but I need to know what my previous shipping address was on my last order,” be aware of the security considerations. (A good example to keep in mind is somebody in an abusive relationship or being stalked. Verify whom you're talking with before you share personal info.)

This is good advice in general, but because we use existing Square customer records even for guest checkouts on Foxy, and because you may use the Square customer functionality more than Foxy's, it's something we want to point out.
