Square Online offers a completely free plan, which comes with unlimited products, SEO tools, omnichannel selling, ordering via QR code, multiple shipment and delivery options and it syncs with Square POS. And if you want to test drive a paid plan, you get a 30-day free trial, and these plans start at around INR 989 per month, billed annually. For a custom URL, you’ll need a paid plan.
Even on its free plan, Square Online lets you accept Afterpay, which is a pay-in-four option for your customers. As a seller, you get access to the funds right away (minus a small fee), and the customer gets their product right away, too. Afterpay assumes the risk, since each customer who signs up starts off with a small amount they can borrow, and as they make on-time payments, the amount they can borrow increases with subsequent purchases.
This pay-in-four option is an ideal feature for ecommerce stores whose average shopping cart totals around INR 2,886 or higher, as that’s the cart minimum for using this feature. On any of its plans, you can also accept donations, Google Pay, Square Pay, Cash App, and Apple Pay.
Who should use it:
Small businesses that want free e-commerce website hosting with no strings attached.
