FAQs

  • Is Square for Restaurants right for my business?

    Square for Restaurants is built to work with single and multi-location full-service restaurants, counter-service restaurants, fast-casual restaurants, bars and lounges. If you use Micros, Aloha, Tevalis, Squirrel, Lightspeed or Epos Now, Square for Restaurants can likely fit your needs at a lower cost. We now offer a free version of Square for Restaurants, as well as two paid plans – Plus and Premium.

  • How much does Square for Restaurants cost?

    We have three pricing plans. Our Free plan covers basic day-to-day service. For more complex needs, our Plus plan is £69 per month per location with unlimited devices. To learn more about our Premium plan you can contact Sales. Plus and Premium include a 30-day free trial.

    All three plans cover unlimited device use and have a processing rate of 1.75% for chip and PIN and contactless payments. Custom pricing is available if you contact Sales. For more details on our plans, visit our pricing page.

  • What’s included in each of the three pricing plans?

    All three Square for Restaurants plans include Fast Order Entry, Menu Manager, Table Management, Order Manager, Open Bills, Service Charge, Remote Device Management, Multi-Location Management, the Square Team Management free plan and M-F, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. GMT support.

    With the Plus plan, you gain features including Item availability tracking, Item Counts, Shared Device Settings, Advanced Reporting, Live Sales Reports, Shift Reports, Close of Day Reports, Square Team Plus and 24/7 Support.

    Premium subscribers get everything listed above as well as custom pricing for additional Square tools, such as Square Online Store.

    To see a complete list of features for each plan, visit our pricing page.

  • Is hardware included?

    Hardware is not included with Square for Restaurants subscriptions, but you can explore compatible kits and devices to build a package that suits your needs. We also work with iPad and industry kitchen printers, receipt printers, cash drawers and routers, so you can use your existing hardware as well.

  • Is the hardware bought or leased?

    All hardware, whether purchased as a one-time cost or financed, is bought. It’s 100% yours once you’ve completed payments.

  • How do I set up Square for Restaurants?

    You can sign up for the free version of Square for Restaurants or start a free 30-day trial of Square for Restaurants Plus here. Please note: You’ll need to use a computer to sign up. Setup is simple, and you can self-onboard with the Free and Plus plans. But if you need help, we offer 24/7 customer support. To discuss a custom Premium plan, contact our Sales team.

  • How do I switch from Square Point of Sale to a Restaurants plan?

    You can switch from Square Point of Sale to the Free or Plus Square for Restaurants plans by subscribing. You’ll be able to utilise your existing features and setup. The only new setup will be for added functionality that’s included with your Restaurants plan.

  • How do I upgrade or downgrade my Square for Restaurants plan?

    You can upgrade from the Free restaurants plan to the Plus plan by subscribing to it here. You’ll be able to utilise all existing features and setup. The only new setup will be for the added functionality that’s included with your upgrade. After your 30-day free trial, you’ll be charged £69 per month per location. If you choose not to subscribe, you’ll be downgraded to the Free Restaurants plan, and you can continue to use the Restaurants POS system or choose to use Square Point of Sale.

    You’ll have the option to keep your Team Plus subscription. (If you cancel it, you’ll still be able to utilise the Team Management free plan features.) You’ll see messaging in your Dashboard letting you know which features you’ll lose with the downgrade. You can see and compare plan features on our pricing page.

    To upgrade to the custom Premium plan, contact our Sales team.
