What exactly is a point of sale (POS)?

A point of sale system (POS for short) lets you ring up sales and accept payments. It’s like a till with brains. Square’s free point of sale app helps your business run smoothly. Create items and put them into categories, and bring popular items front and centre.

Track all your sales in one place

There’s no fee to record other types of payments, meaning you can track cash, gift cards, cheques or anything else you accept in your POS.

No training necessary

Square Point of Sale allows your staff to get up and running quickly. Its straightforward design makes it easy to get started.


Advanced features, included for free.

Traditional POS systems can be expensive — with Square our advanced tools are included for free. You can split tickets, send digital receipts and issue refunds. Plus, if your business has multiple sites, you can monitor them all with Location Management.

Receipt options

Customers can opt for digital receipts and you can get private feedback from your customers to know how you’re doing.

Open tickets and split tender

Keep tabs open and let your customers pay when it’s convenient. Split a tab by cards or take payments in multiple ways.

Manage inventory in real time

Change item details like price, name or quantity in real time. Track stock quantities and get email alerts when items run low.


Make more informed business decisions.

When you need to know how your business is performing, sign in to your free Square Dashboard from any computer. From new customer information to sales by item, see what’s working or where to improve.


Manage people and places.

Manage employee access

Control what data your employees can access with employee passcodes. Keep tabs on who sold and refunded what.

Timecards at the point of sale

Square Point of Sale lets employees clock in and out right at your point of sale.

Mobilise your staff

When queues get long, equip staff with Square Readers and a phone or tablet — send them out with their mobile POS systems to ring up customers.

Multiple locations, one account

Edit your menu, employee time cards and prices for different locations from anywhere, all through your Square Dashboard.

Reporting tools you can grow with

What our sellers say.

"We needed a system that could do open tickets that you could edit — say, if you moved tables. Our previous POS didn't offer this but Square had this feature built in for no extra charge — which was brilliant.”
