Square - Avoiding Token Expiry

Preventing “OAuth access token has expired”

Manual Prevention

A couple of times a week, go to Admin > Modules > Payment / Square WebPay, click Edit then click Update.

Automated Prevention

Set up a cron job job to run at least twice a week (daily is fine too) that refreshes the token.

Depending on your server configuration, you can do

php PATH_TO_STORE/squareWebPay_handler.php

(where PATH_TO_STORE is the value of DIR_FS_CATALOG from your includes/configure.php file)


/usr/bin/wget https://YOURSTORE/squareWebPay_handler.php
