    Good information. Do you know what the interest rates are generally? What term lengths can the customer choose? Can the business owner set the term length? For example, I sell a one or two year membership, can I limit the term to 12 or 24 months max?

      Hi Jeff,

      Our understanding, based on a quick search on Square’s website, is that the customer applies and is offered an APR based on their creditworthiness, just like any other sort of line of credit, and then they are offered a choice to pay over 3, 6, or 12 months. The merchant does not have any say in the matter because it’s for the customers to choose.
