Square Online offers a completely free plan, which includes unlimited products, SEO tools, omnichannel selling, ordering via QR code, multiple shipping and delivery options, and it syncs with Square POS. And if you want to test out a paid plan, you get a 30-day free trial, and those plans start at $12 per month, billed annually. For a custom URL, you will need a paid plan.
Even on its free plan, Square Online lets you accept Afterpay, which is a one-stop payment option for your customers. As a seller, you have immediate access to funds (minus a small fee) and the customer also receives their product immediately. Afterpay bears the risk, since each customer who signs up starts with a small amount they can borrow, and as they make payments on time, the amount they can borrow increases with subsequent purchases.
This four-way checkout option is an ideal feature for e-commerce stores with an average cart total of $35 or more, as this is the minimum cart to use this feature. On any of its plans, you can also accept donations, Google Pay, Square Pay, Cash App, and Apple Pay.
