How to send a Square gift card
This holiday season, send a Square gift card for the local bookstore or coffee shop to a friend or family member. Here's how!
- Once you have Square Wallet installed you'll need to set up an account, complete with your payment information.
- You can then find a local store listed in Square Wallet, such as a coffee shop or bookstore, open the respective card for that business, and then tap "Send Gift Card."
- Enter the recipient's information, select an amount and delivery date, and then tap Next in the upper-right corner.
- Last but not least, select a digital envelope for the card to be delivered in.
The best part about sending a Square gift cards is that the recipient doesn't even have to own a smartphone. The recipient of the card will be able to add the gift card to their Square Wallet account, or print out the card (with a QR code) and redeem it at the local business. Square merchants can then use the Square Register app to process the gift card payment.
