Accept Tips with the Square App
Using the Square app, you are able to customise your settings to accept tips electronically or on a printed receipt. You can view all tip amounts your payment history in the Square app.
Enable Tipping In-App
From the navigation bar at the bottom of your screen, tap ≡ More.
Tap Settings > Checkout > Tipping.
Toggle on Collect Tips and select between showing your tip options on the signature screen or on a separate screen.
Note: If Allow Custom Amounts is enabled and the preset amounts are all set to 0%, Square Point of Sale will hide these amounts and display only the Custom Tip Amount and No Tip options.
Smart Tip Amounts
When Smart Tip Amounts is enabled, tipping works as follows:
If a transaction is less than $10, the available tipping options are No Tip, $1, $2 or $3.
For a transaction $10 or more, the available tipping options are No Tip, 5%, 10% or 20%.
Set Percentage Amounts
Enabling percentage amounts allows you to set three custom amounts, which you can adjust at any time. To create custom tipping amounts:
Tap Set Percentage Amounts within your tipping settings.
Tap each amount field to enter your custom percentage.
To allow your customers to enter a tip amount of their choosing, toggle on Allow Custom Amounts.
Note: Setting your fixed percentage amounts to 0% will only give your customers the ability to enter a custom tip amount.
Depending on the size of your sale, the maximum custom tip limits are as follows:
If a transaction is below $3, then the maximum custom tip amount is $3.
If a transaction is over $3, then the maximum custom tip amount can be up to 100% of the transaction.
If a transaction is over $200, then the maximum custom tip amount can be up to 50% of the transaction, up to $1,000.
