How Do I Link My Square Account to My Debit Card?

For Square, linking debit cards to accounts has become one of its most valuable features. Linking your card allows you to pay with ease at physical store locations without tapping your phone or typing in a password. If you get stuck during the process and need further assistance, contact customer service for additional help. Other methods may allow you to link your debit card, such as using an online forum or contacting your card issuer. You can also get the help you need from online forums.

Square provides payment processing to businesses of all sizes. Square made headlines in 2014 by being the first credible challenger to PayPal's hegemony in small business transactions. Since then, it has continued to grow and has connected itself with many major companies, such as Starbucks and Apple Pay. Square's most helpful feature is its ability to link your debit card to your Square account and pay through the app. This feature is handy for small businesses that make most of their transactions at a physical store. Using Square, customers can walk up and swipe to pay without having to worry about tapping their phone or typing in a password.

Use the Website

Visit the square website and sign in to your account on the top right-hand side of the site. Click on "Square" and click "Link a Debit Card." Enter in all requested information, including a valid checking account number, bank routing number, and a phone number so they can contact you. Click "Save," and you are all set!

Use the App

Open your app store and download Square's mobile app to your phone. When you open the app, sign in to your Square account. The first page that pops up will have a "Link a Debit Card" option at the bottom. Press this and follow the steps provided above for linking a debit card via an online website. After giving the details, the app will store your account information, and you can start swiping.

Contact Customer Service

If neither of these options works, contact customer support for further assistance. You will have to provide information such as your checking account number and bank routing number, as well as a short description of the problem. Check the options above before calling customer service to see if you have input your information correctly, as this will save time on hold.

Contact Your Card Provider

Contact your card issuer if you are still having trouble getting your debit card linked to your Square account. Explain the problem and see if they have any customer support linking a third-party payment processor to your debit card. If they do not, ask if they can unlink your card, and then you can try one of the above methods.
