Support questions

Help I get this error: "Location cannot be blank. A Square merchant must have at least one physical location with which to associate transactions in order to take online payments"

Make sure you completed filling out all the information for your location. If it is not completed you will need to complete this and reconnect in occasion via the Integrations page and select "Square" from the list of available integrations. If you keep getting this error please contact square support and ask them to enable your location for credit card processing.
