How QR code ordering works
Step 1: Create your Square Online ordering page.
All ordering pages offer an app-like experience for easy browsing, ordering, and payment on mobile.
Step 2: Generate and print your QR codes.
Each QR code is uniquely mapped to one of your tables, walk-up windows, parking spots, or other ordering locations.
Step 3: Diners scan QR codes to open your ordering page.
Guests can order, add notes, and pay immediately or keep ordering on the same tab.
Step 4: Orders go to your POS and kitchen printers.
Your staff can prep and run orders, or you can provide guests instructions on where to pick them up.

“We really appreciated Square’s quick addition of self-serve ordering last year, and implemented QR codes immediately for our outdoor dining area. Most importantly, self-service technology helps protect our customers and employees.”
— Lisa and Abhijeet Purkayastha, Khana Indian Grill
“With self-serve ordering, we spend less time taking orders and more time with customers who want a conversation. With each self-serve order, we get the customer’s email address and can send them updates to keep them coming back.”
— Alysa Visnesky, Eastwood Farm & Winery
“Self-serve ordering lets customers place food truck orders without coming outside — a game-changer during winter. Each ticket includes name and table number so we can run orders instead of shouting out names. It’s a much better customer experience.”
— Marc Glaviano, Farm to Sandwich
