Sales reports in the Square POS app are now even more powerful

We’ve improved sales reports in the Square POS app to help you better run your business and make more informed decisions. Now you can access top-line sales metrics (such as gross sales, sales count, and refunds by time period) in seconds, and view time-based comparisons of your sales through charts and tables. Finally, your top-selling items and categories are at your fingertips in the POS app. Simply go to Sales in the Reports section of the app’s main menu.

Itemised Refunds in Square Dashboard

You can now issue refunds and process returns for specific items in a sale directly from your online Square Dashboard, not just the Square app.


When issuing an itemized refund, the amount being refunded will reflect any applicable taxes and discounts for the selected item(s).
