Apps You Can Integrate With Your Square Account

Dec 23, 2019

Founded in 2009, Square’s primary focus is to equip small businesses to easily and quickly take credit card payments.  Its offerings have expanded to inventory, point of sale, and employee management so that these small businesses can operate like large businesses.

Because of this mission, Square has opened up its platform to like-minded partners who also endeavor to help businesses simplify their daily operations. This has led to Square’s integration with numerous apps, including: Intuit QuickBooks, Xero, Stitch Labs, IFTTT, TaxJar, SumAll, Fresh KDS, Shopseen, and ShipStation.

All the details of the aforementioned apps can be found in Square App Marketplace and can be synced easily with your Square account.

A brief description of these apps and their functions are outlined below.

This app can handle accounts payable, time tracking, expense management, and data collection. You can customize based on “industry-specific” needs (law offices, restaurants, restaurants, etc.). It also offers “deeper data insights” with expanded data tracking and reporting capabilities.

This online accounting software is designed to save businesses time. From importing bank transfers to sending invoice reminders, this app does the work for you.  All your data is stored safely in one place, which allows you to see and track how your business is doing. Another plus is that you can invite your accountant or bookkeeper into Xero so that you are in compliance with your tax obligations.

Stitch Labs

This platform offers solutions for five crucial areas to contribute to business growth: inventory management, order management, fulfillment, purchasing, reporting, and financials.

You can connect your smart home to your Domino’s account. By creating an applet, you can set up your smart home to turn on your porch light once Domino’s notifies you that your pizza is out for delivery.

It also generates reports on how much they’ve collected in sales tax from all the platforms they sell through including Amazon, Shopify and eBay. It also features an AutoFile component that helps ecommerce businesses file sales tax returns in many states.

SumAll

This platform combines social media, sales metrics, web traffic, and other data to track business and social media metrics. It offers automation tools in order to engage with your customers 24/7. Best of all, it’s free!

In Conclusion

The Square integration with these apps can only mean efficiency, convenience, and time-saving solutions that will help small businesses focus less on the time-consuming aspects of running a business and more on producing a high-quality product and keeping customers happy.

Having a merchant account allows an account holder to take advantage of merchant cash advances. When a merchant is approved for an advance, the business agrees to receive a lump sum of cash in exchange for an agreed-upon percentage of future credit card sales.

Pricing varies depending on the merchant’s industry, past credit card processing history, the type of business seeking the account, average ticket sales, and average transaction volumes.

Yes, EMB works with merchants who are building their credit, as well as those who have poor credit. EMB also approves merchants that have no credit card processing history and businesses that have lost their merchant accounts due to high chargebacks.

Several factors influence a merchant’s risk level. Though only one factor likely will not get a merchant classified as high risk, a combination of these may: business size, location, and industry, credit score, credit card processing history, a industry’s reputation for excessive chargebacks, a prior history of high chargeback ratios, and whether a merchant exclusively sells online.

Virtual terminals are stationed on a merchant’s website, making it easy for customers to make a payment or purchase online. Merchants or a payment processor can easily set up virtual terminals, so online businesses can accept credit and debit card and e-check transactions.

A merchant account is a business account with an acquiring bank. Without this business account, which actually works more like a line of credit, a merchant cannot accept and process credit and debit card transactions. Businesses need a merchant account to accept major credit cards via a static point-of-sale terminal, mobile card reader, or through a virtual payment gateway.

After filling out EMB’s simple online application and submitting any necessary, requested documents, many merchants get approved within 24 and 48 hours.

EMB specializes in working with high-risk merchants. EMB works with many merchants, including but not limited to businesses in these industries: gambling and gaming, adult entertainment, nutraceuticals, vaping and e-cigarettes, electronics, tech support, travel, high-end furniture, weight loss programs, calling cards, e-books and software, and telecommunications.
