The Square + Holded integration is only available to users in Spain. We strongly recommend users outside of Spain to not attempt integration setup as compatibility issues may arise with your specific country of operation.
The integration is 100% completely free of charge for those using Square and Holded in Spain.
Of course! If you would like to request a walkthrough or discuss the capabilities of the integration in more detail, you may schedule a support session with one of our integration experts.
Within your Holded dashboard, go to Menu > Settings > Developers page. Once here, you will need to click ‘New API Key’ which will generate the API Key that should be used within the ‘Secret’ field of the Amaka form. Note: Please be sure that your ‘Client Name’ in the Amaka form matches the nominated Holded account.
Yes, Square payouts are synced as bank transfers so you can easily match them to your Square deposits (appearing in your bank statement). Square fees and other Square settlements are also accounted for so you get a complete breakdown of your total Square collections. You can find the Square fees and Square other settlements synced as Other Payments or Other Receipts within the Square Balance account (a bank account automatically created by the integration as a clearing account for Square payments).
The integration filters the accounts for each transaction and payment type. If you cannot find the account that you are trying to map, try checking the account category of the account. You can refer to default accounts mapping for the account categories appropriate to the transaction or payment type. In case the account category is appropriate to the transaction you are trying to map, try checking the visibility of the account. You may need to tick the visibility for Sales, Other Payments and Other Receipts. Click here to find out more.
Sure, you can select the date that you wish the data to be synced from through the integration scheduler. You can backdate the sync up to one year.
Yes, this can be done through the Square + Holded Payment Integration. This has been built by the team at Holded (who also support all connections and requests regarding its behaviours). For any questions on this, we recommend reaching out to Holded.
In case you have revoked the access or changed credentials of an account used for an integration, you can easily reconnect it by expanding the options menu and clicking the Reconnect (or Edit) button on the Connected Accounts page.
At any time, you can access your Amaka dashboard and disable an integration by either turning it OFF or deleting it entirely. You can follow the instructions here.
