Setting up Square
With the Square payment gateway add-on, you can allow your customers to pay for orders using your Square account. There are some things you will need to get from your Square account to setup the integration:
Decide your checkout method:
Website: Users will stay on your website throughout the entire checkout process. This requires an SSL certificate!
Square’s Website: Users are taken to Square’s website to enter payment information and then returned back to your website after a successful payment. No SSL is required.
Create an application:
Go here on the Square website to create a new Application and get all the following fields:
- Application ID
- Personal Access Token
If you want to some test purchases first, make sure to also grab the following:
- Sandbox Application ID
- Sandbox Access Token
Enter all these values into the Square settings in Sunshine.
Select a location:
In the sub-menu where you created your Application, find the Locations tab. Get your Location ID and enter it into the settings.
