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

Square New Features July

We’re constantly releasing new tools and features designed to help you start, run and grow your business. To help you get the most out of Square, here’s a quick rundown of what’s new.

Delegate employee management for locations

Square Employee Management enables the business account owner to create employee roles and manage permissions in both Square Dashboard and Point of Sale. With our new Delegated Employee Management feature, you can create roles for managers in more than one Square location. Location managers can handle employee passcodes, assign employee roles and deactivate employees without having to grant them access to the full account.

To get started:

  1. Sign in to the Permissions tab in your online Square Dashboard.
  2. Select Create Role.
  3. Check the box next to each permission you’d like to enable for this role.
  4. Toggle on Access Dashboard and select Manage Employees.
  5. Select the roles this employee type can manage and Save to confirm the employee role.

Personalise your referral code

We’ve made it simpler than ever to refer other businesses to Square. Just claim your personalised code and share it with your friends and community. If someone you refer activates a new Square account using your code, you will both receive fee-free processing on up to $1,000 in card transactions for each referral (some restrictions apply). Learn more here.

Get access to Business Bundles at Vodafone

We’ve teamed up with Vodafone Australia to deliver a first-of-its-kind offer for Australian small business owners. If you’re a new Vodafone customer, you can now source your small business hardware, software and payment tools in one place. At selected Vodafone stores, Square Reader for contactless and chip can be purchased for just $5 (RRP $59) when bundled with Vodafone’s 24-month $60 and above Red plan and/or its $50 and above SIM Only Red plan. You’ll also receive fee-free processing on your first $1,000 in card payments if you’re joining as a new Square customer. Learn more about what’s on offer here.

Get organised with Square’s new item view

This new feature enables you to manage item variations, inventory (even at multiple locations) and location price overrides in the updated Items tab located in your Square Dashboard. We’ve also updated employee permissions, giving you more control over your employee’s actions outside of their home locations. Try out the new item view today on Square Dashboard.
