With Split Tender, customers can easily split a bill or use multiple forms of tender to complete a payment with Square. For each form of tender accepted, a separate receipt will be issued. Each receipt will display the total sale amount, all items sold and the type of tender used. To use Split Tender, make sure your app is up to date.

Note: Remember, when you accept cash or other tender payments, Square doesn’t actually process any funds.

Split a Payment Between Multiple Forms of Tender

  1. Tap the blue Charge button.
  2. Tap Split at the top-right of the screen.
  3. Tap Add Cash, Add Card or Swipe, Add Gift Card or Swipe, or Add Other, and enter the amount you’d like to charge for the form of tender.
  4. Tap Tender or Charge to process the payment.
  5. Tap Done to return to the payment screen.
  6. Continue processing the additional tender types until the entire sale has been completed.

Smart Split

To split a payment evenly across multiple payment cards:

Troubleshooting Tips for Split Tender Payments

  • A split tender payment isn’t complete until the entire amount of the sale has been processed and there’s no remaining balance. 
  • Tapping the arrow at the top of your screen before completing an entire sale will clear any amount previously recorded for this payment.
