poster with words you can now accept payments seamlessly through square

Earlier this year we exhibited at two buzzing conferences in America. And the most common feedback was that you wanted to use Ticket Tailor with Square.  A couple of months later, and now you can!

Our dev team has worked tirelessly to integrate Square with Ticket Tailor – giving event organisers (and ticket buyers) even more payment choice ahead of the summer season and beyond.

New to Square? 

Here are the 4 main benefits:

  • It’s free to start a Square account, and transaction fees are competitively low. See Square fees based on your location.
  • Getting started is simple - thanks to our integration, you can easily start accepting payments through Square in a few clicks.
  • You can use Square to sell your event tickets, merchandise, gift vouchers and memberships, online.
  • Like our existing payment options PayPal and Stripe, you get paid directly. You’ll see the money in your Square account as soon as someone makes a purchase.

Already using Square? 

It’s simple to connect your accounts and start using Square with Ticket Tailor:

  1. Login to your dashboard and head to ‘Box office settings’ (top right), followed by ‘Payment systems’ from the side menu. Or click here.
  2. Select the button: ‘Connect a square account’.
  3. You’ll be taken to a Square page to connect your account to ‘Zimma Ltd’ (this is our trading name).
  4. You’ll then be asked to connect your account – once connected, you’ll be directed back to Ticket Tailor.
  5. You’ll then be presented with a pop-up to choose whether you want to use Square for all new events, and/or existing ones. And that’s it.

💡 If you want to use Square as your main payment processor, you'll also need to:

  • Head to your live event.
  • Change the status to 'Draft'.
  • Select 'Edit event and tickets'.
  • Scroll down to the box called 'Event settings'.
  • Uncheck Stripe, PayPal or Offline payment methods, and make sure Square is checked.
  • Click save.
  • Publish your event!

It’s as simple as that. Connect your Square account today
