Cleantie is integrated with Square to process credit card transactions on Square terminal for walk-in customers and uses Square API to process card-on-file payments for App customers using the same Square merchant account.
Please note Square Station does not support Cleantie POS. You don't need a Square terminal to process credit card payments for App customers. The square terminal is only used for walk-in customers. Cleantie POS works across PCs, tablets, and Mac computers.
Card payment acceptance with the Square is currently available in the US, Canada, Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, France, and Spain. Click here to see Cleantie in Square App Market
