  • How do I switch from my current solution?

Just select your plan, sign up and import your inventory. You can easily transfer your existing inventory with bulk-intake importing.

    You can count on Square for transparent pricing and no long-term contracts. And if you need help, Square Support is here for you.

  • Can I upgrade my Square for Retail plan?

    You can upgrade your plan from Square for Retail Free to Square for Retail Plus by subscribing here. You’ll be able to use all existing features and you’ll only have to set up the added functionality included with your upgrade. After your 30-day free trial of the Square for Retail Plus plan, you’ll be given the option to pick your plan. If you don’t choose one, you’ll automatically be downgraded to the Square for Retail Free plan.

    To upgrade to the Square for Retail Custom Premium plan, contact our sales team.

  • Can I downgrade my Square for Retail plan?

    You can always downgrade your subscription from Square for Retail Plus to Square for Retail Free in your Dashboard. When you downgrade, you’ll see messaging in your Dashboard letting you know which features you’ll lose, like certain automated inventory management features, cross-location returns and barcode label printing. You can see and compare plan features on our pricing page.

    You can also pause your subscription at any time from your Dashboard. When you pause a subscription, you will not be billed. You can resume at any time and your account will be ready for you without losing your past data.

  • What’s the difference between Square Point of Sale and Square Retail POS?

    Square Point of Sale is the app sellers use to accept credit cards in person, online or on the go. Square Retail POS is an all-in-one point of sale designed specifically for retail businesses of all sizes. Square Retail POS builds on features from the standard Square Point of Sale and includes advanced inventory management features and more to help retailers streamline their businesses.

    Compare Square Point of Sale and Square for Retail Free and Square for Retail Plus plans to find the best POS solution for your business. Already use Square Point of Sale? Switch over to the Square for Retail Plus plan to take advantage of the discounted pricing for in-person transactions.

1The rate of 2.6% for contactless and chip and PIN payments for all major credit cards is only applicable to payments processed when signed in to a Square for Retail Plus account on the Retail POS, and the standard Interac contactless and chip and PIN rate applies.

2If your business processes $250K or more in credit card sales each year (not including Interac debit sales), you may be eligible to save money with a custom rate. Contact sales.
