Choose from a variety of six label formats sizes, including barbell (perfect for jewelry) , as well as printing layouts to suit your business.

Send Kitchen Orders from Retail Point-Of-Sale

For businesses that sell retail goods as well as made-to-order food, you can now send kitchen orders from your Square for Retail POS to Square KDS (Kitchen Display Screen). This saves time by not needing to process separate transactions, and notifies your kitchen on what food & beverage items from the sale need to be prepared. Square for Retail users can subscribe to Square KDS for $25 per device / per month.
