This is correct. The 2.75% fee is charged to the merchant not the customer.
In this case, we are the merchant, not the customer. Right?

The holder of the Square account is the merchant. I'm not sure what "Helpme" is trying to add.

I was trying to clear up the confusion if there was a charge (fee added) to the CC. There is no charge to the CC. The CC would be considered the customer. The 2.75% fee is charged to the merchant, the one who receives the CC. My guess for most of the uses here they are one in the same so it really doesn’t matter.

A lot of grocery stores but I would use a 6% cash back card.

Which card gives 6% ?

so if I pick groceries I would pay 2.75% processing fees and get back 6% if I have the blue cash preferred? Is there anyway for AMEX to tell that you're using square?

lechorah yes. Of course they can tell. Question is if amex can tell you're the merchant. Square will block u if u use ur own card a lot so make an AU.
The bigger question is what happens if u charge $100000, on cc's that give enough points to make it worth 2.75%. I know Sq. Audits accts that charge over 1000/wk... Anyone?

If the problem is AMEX being able to tell that you're the merchant just don't be. I'm sure you know someone that would let you use their card for this.

Square will work with Amex GC's. For your second question you should really read Squares T&C's and make your own decision.

Sq T&C state you can't use it for cash advances. Since the card is being charged to obtain cash, I believe this falls under that category
