How Can We Help?

Make sure you are subscribed for the SynthesisVR’s Square module:

  • Go to “Administration >> Arcade Setup >> SynthesisVR Subscriptions” and subscribe for the “Square Payments” module (it is free).

Once subscribed, you need to set up a new app account on Square by heading to https://developer.squareup.com/apps and logging into your square account (if not already logged in).

You need to set up a new “app” to allow SynthesisVR to connect to Square. First, you’ll need to click on the big “+”

Create an Application Name (like Arcade Name Square Processing or something) and then click on Save.

Once created, click on the Open button to get to all the data you will need:

  • </script>

When testing the widget, use the following ZIP code:
