  • Can I offer gift cards with Square POS?

  • How much is Square Point of Sale per month?

    Square Point of Sale software is free to use, so you can put that money toward more important things, like better ingredients for your baked goods or new equipment for your cafe.

  • Can I integrate a loyalty program?

    Of course. Square Loyalty is built right into Square Point of Sale and works perfectly for cafes, bakeries, restaurants – you name it. Square Loyalty starts at just $60 per month.

  • How does Square Point of Sale software compare to other cafe or coffee shop POS systems?

    Square Point of Sale is part of a unique ecosystem of offerings that provides all the tools a business needs to run and grow. With a synced online store, contactless in-person sales, invoicing, team management, loyalty programs, marketing, inventory management and third-party integrations, everything you need for your cafe or coffee shop is waiting for you.

  • Can I set up online ordering for my coffee shop?

    Square Online lets you design a website that fits your business’s online ordering and fulfillment needs. You can build a full website or ordering page and integrate it with your existing site to start taking orders. You can offer customers curbside pickup and delivery. Online transactions are subject to higher processing fees.

  • Can Square Point of Sale help with inventory management?

    Yes. Once you enter your items, you’ll automatically get alerts when inventory gets low. And since it’s a cloud-based POS, you’ll have inventory for all locations synced automatically.
