How do I get paid?
You will be paid via your payment processing service. If you collect payment via Square, you get paid through your Square account. Same applies for any other payment processing service like Venmo, PayPal, Zelle, etc. Since MCB does not take a percentage of your earnings, how you collect payment is purely up to you. You can still track all your orders and statuses in MCB for payments made outside of Square.

How much does this cost?
MCB has been free to use since Nov. 2021. As we keep adding new features, we’ll start charging a $7.99 monthly subscription fee starting Sept. 2022 but that’s it! No hidden fees. No absurd charges. Just you and your shop.

We *hope* to make MCB available outside the US, make sure to follow us on Instagram or sign up for our newsletter to be notified when this becomes available.

What does the Customer see when using MCB?
You can create a mock order to “pretend” to be a client to see how the workflow appears to them. We’re working on some additional training materials for this part, hang tight!
