Paired with Cognito Forms, you can create forms that accept payments, sell online, collect donations, and more in just a matter of minutes!

Connect your account

Connecting your Square account with Cognito Forms is a breeze! First, create a new form, or go to an existing form that you wish to add payment to. Click the Payment button at the bottom of the page to open up the Payment Accounts dialog, and select Square to either log in to your current account, or sign up for a new one.

After you login, you can connect your Square account to your form:
