Get the Most Out of Square: New Features and Tools We Launched in September

Accept tap-and-go payments

Want to start accepting Apple Pay or Android Pay? Allow your customers to securely tap their card or any digital wallet app on their phone for super-fast payment with the new Square contactless and chip reader. The reader connects wirelessly to your mobile device using the latest Bluetooth LE (BLE) technology, and it can be paired with our super-sleek Dock for Square Reader. Once it’s mounted securely on your countertop, it stays charged all day long. If you’re a mobile business, the contactless and chip reader is small enough to fit in your pocket — so you can take it with you wherever you want to sell. Learn more.

Personalise your Square Dashboard

You want control over precisely what data you can see when you log into your Square Dashboard. We’ve heard your pleas, and we’ve updated the Dashboard to allow you to personalise it so you can stay on top of what matters most in your business. The Dashboard widgets can now be added, removed and placed wherever you like with a simple drag-and-drop feature. Try it out.

Get easy updates with Square Invoices analytics

We’ve updated your Square Invoices dashboard to make it easier to manage your outstanding invoices and get paid faster. At the top of your Invoices dashboard, you can now see dollar amounts for three important metrics:

  • The total amount from invoices paid over the past 30 days
  • The total amount you’re owed from unpaid or overdue invoices
  • The total amount you’re owed from draft invoices

With this information at your fingertips, it’s even simpler to see where your business stands financially and determine when it’s time to send your clients a reminder. Check it out here.
