  • If you choose Square, click "Use an external payment processor" - there is also an option to not to accept online payments.

4. You will need either your Business EIN or your SSN to continue setting up payments

  • What other placeholders does Spectora offer? Lots! Here's an article on all our placeholders and what they mean.

  • Can I create my own placeholder? No, the only custom placeholders we offer are generated when you create a custom scheduling field.

  • Why did my payment verification fail? Check to make sure you are entering your EIN correctly, with no spaces before or after.
