Square works with any US-issued and most internationally-issued magstripe or chip cards bearing a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, or UnionPay logo. The following card types are accepted:
Debit (processed like credit)
The Square Point of Sale app processes all card types with the same standard rates.
Note: JCB is not supported with the contactless and chip card reader at this time.
Accept Prepaid Cards
Square can process prepaid cards bearing any of the logos above at our standard processing fees. Any remaining balance from prepaid cards will display on the receipt.
PayPal allows you to make payments using a variety of methods including: PayPal Cash or PayPal Cash Plus account balance, a bank account, PayPal Credit, debit or credit cards, and rewards balance.
Selecting a preferred payment method
You can choose any of the payment methods in your account with PayPal as your preferred payment method in the Payments section of your account settings. If you select a preferred payment method, it will be shown as the preferred payment method when you make a purchase online, in-store, or when you send money via goods and services.
You can select different preferred payment methods for online transactions and in-store transactions.
If you choose an in-store preferred payment method and do not have any money in your PayPal Cash or Paypal Cash Plus account balance, your preferred payment method will be used for your entire purchase.
If no preferred payment method, it’s still your choice
There may be times when your preferred payment method cannot be used. For example, if you select a credit card as your preferred payment method and the card has expired, you will not be able to pay with that card. Also, the availability of certain payment methods may be limited based on a particular seller or the third-party website you are using to complete the transaction.
If you have not selected a preferred payment method, or your preferred payment method is unavailable, we will show you available payment methods, including the payment method you use most often or most recently, at the time of transaction. You can also click on the “Manage” link to see all of your available payment methods, or add a new one, and select a payment method during the transaction.
