How to pass custom data to the Square transaction?

    Asked on January 13, 2018 at 07:09 PM

    Square has "items" filed into "categories". I have successfully set up several items in Jotform to integrate with Square and make sales. However, they go into Square as "uncategorized". Is there a way to add the Square category to the Jotform submission? Alternatively, is there a way to get Square to take the transaction from Jotform and recognize it as having a category?

    As far as I know the Square integration does not allow custom data, you will be able to pass over the the amount and credit card  details in order to process the data, but so far the API does not support any other data; however, rest assured that this will be implemented as soon as it's possible.

    I need this feature as well. Without the individual items displayed on the receipt and Square dashboard, this is making reconciling transactions a nightmare.

    Hello,

    There was a brief period when item names were not passed to Square properly.

    This has been resolved now.


    You should see all transactions and the related items on your Square dashboard now.


    If there is anything else we can help with, please let us know.

    Thank you

    I just created a jot form to receive donations to our non-profit thru Square but when a donation was made, it  showed as 'Uncategorized' rather than a donation which I have set as a category. Is there a way for me to change that?
