    The merchant has not given your application sufficient permissions to do that. The merchant must authorize your application for the following scopes: PAYMENTS_WRITE

    The URL to the Wix site you have shared is not a valid URL, or the page was taken down:


    I checked your payment form, and it appears to be connected correctly to your Square account, and it is in live mode, which means that it should take payments without an issue. Could you share a screenshot of the error that you received?

    You may also contact Square support to make sure that your account is ready to take payments.

    I am having this same issue.  Can you please share how it was resolved?

    The square account is accepting payments via swiping the card so there is a change required that is specific to online Jotform integration?
