I know we can link multiple locations to a merchant account. But is it possible to add a different region to a merchant account? Consider, I have created a merchant account in the US region, so my main location is the US and I have added a few more locations in the US region through CreateLocation API. But, when I tried to add a different region [Ex: CA/UK] for the merchant account created above, I’m getting errors. So, is it possible to add the different country’s specific locations to the merchant account.?Thanks!
At this time creating a location that’s in a different country from the one the Square account was created in isn’t currently available. You’ll need to create a new Square account for that region to process payments in the countries currency.
Thanks for the input @Bryan-Square!
@Gayathri No, it is generally not possible to add locations from different countries or regions to a single merchant account. Merchant accounts are typically associated with specific countries or regions due to various factors, including legal and regulatory requirements, currency considerations, and financial regulations. Each country or region may have its own set of rules and guidelines that govern merchant accounts and payment processing.
Therefore, if you have a merchant account created in the US region, it is typically limited to adding locations within the US. If you wish to accept payments in a different country or region, you would need to create a separate merchant account specifically for that country or region. This ensures compliance with local laws, currency conversions, and other specific requirements associated with conducting business in different countries.
It is important to consult with the payment service provider or merchant account provider you are using for more specific guidance and information regarding adding locations from different countries or regions to your merchant account. They will be able to provide you with the necessary information and support based on their platform’s capabilities and requirements.
