Selling Gift Certificates with ReservationKey and Square

With the holiday season almost in full swing, now is the perfect time to set up ReservationKey Gift Certificates and Square.  While we have offered Gift Certificates for many years, we just now have added Square as a payment option.  Square has been very popular with our clients thanks to their competitive pricing, very secure platform (card data is entered directly into Square hosted fields, on their servers; the fields are embedded using an iframe, so the data is never touched by systems outside of Square), and easy to set up system.

Once connected, the Square form appears here:

Since it can take a second for us to get the card nonce (like a token) back from Square, we’ve also added an overlay screen to help prevent double clicks and to make it clear the charge is processing.
