Unable to toggle ON the Payment Service feature


There are two possible reasons.

  1. Your Square account is not yet verified – If you are new to Square, you need to go through a verification process. Once your account has been verified, you can start receiving payments via credit card. Verify your Square account if you haven’t yet or check out Square’s Sign Up Troubleshooting guide.
  2. You’ve previously activated the payment service, however, Xero has been disconnected from the integration app


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 cliking the Reconnect (or Edit) button in the Connected accounts page.
