Manage Multiple Locations with Square
Square has tools for businesses of all sizes. Square offers free multi-location management features including linked locations and transfer options, per-location item libraries, device management for security, and premium multi-location reports. You can also subscribe for additional team logins as needed.
Create and Edit Locations
If your business has multiple locations, you can manage everything right from your online Square Dashboard. You can create unique business profiles for each location with specific business hours and individual bank accounts or tags to differentiate transfers. You can also manage devices by location with Device Codes.
When viewing your online Square Dashboard, you’ll notice an orange or black bar at the top of some pages, this is to alert you that you are viewing location specific information.
Important to note
There is a 300-location limit per master account.
The Create Location action cannot be undone. Once a location has been created, it can’t be deleted and will remain visible even if it’s been deactivated.
To create additional locations, visit Locations in online Square Dashboard and click Create Location. Once you add a new location, you cannot delete locations, but you can deactivate a location at any time. Inactive accounts will still be visible and can be reactivated at any time.
Add the following information about each location:
Edit Location Information
You can edit locations at any time from Locations in online Square Dashboard. Just select the location, edit the information, and click Save.
Note: From your Account Settings on your online online Square Dashboard or Square POS app, you can update your business and location business name. Your Business Name and Locations Business Name should not change often and can only be updated three times. Depending on the name change you are making, your account will be subject to review.
Add Transfer Tags
Transfer tags help identify transfers to the same bank account from separate business locations. You can add a transfer tag for each location to quickly see which location is responsible for each transfer.
Bulk Assign Team Members to Locations
Go to Account & Settings > Business information > Locations in your online Square Dashboard.
Select a location and scroll to Team Members > click the team member count for the selected location.
Select individual team members, all team members, or filter team members by location and role. For example, select the Role filter > All Roles > Manager, then assign all existing team members with the Manager role to the location.
Switch Between Locations
To switch between locations from the Square Point of Sale app:
From the navigation bar, tap ≡ More.
Tap Switch location.
Choose the location you want to log in to.
Note: This feature is only available on the Square Point of Sale app. We hope to expand availability to all Square apps soon.
Manage Multiple Businesses using Square Launchpad
If you have multiple services or businesses with Square, you can navigate to each one using Square Launchpad. The centralised view is designed for you to easily access all of your businesses in one, streamlined place. You can toggle between card view or list view or use the search bar to quickly locate your business
You can also manage your personal settings by clicking Account & Settings > Personal Information to manage sign in information, two-step verification, security options and account preferences such as language or time zone.
Multi-location Item Management
Manage your items by location from your full access team member account. Items and item settings, including modifiers, discounts, and taxes, can all be assigned to specific locations.
Assign Items to Specific Locations
Go to Items from your online Square Dashboard.
Click Create Item or click an existing item.
Select applicable locations and save your changes.
If you add an item to a new location, check the current item settings (modifier set, discounts, and taxes).
If you have multiple locations in your Square account, you'll have the ability to create and manage price overrides. Price overrides can be used to set the price of an item to be different between multiple locations without needing to create a location-specific item. To create a price override in your online Square Dashboard:
Go to Items from your online Square Dashboard.
Choose an item you'd like to set a price override for.
Click on a variation to edit variation details, and then click Add price override.
Choose your price and select a location to apply the price override. Once this is complete, click Done to save your changes.
Multiple External Bank Accounts on File
You can link multiple external bank accounts to your Square account, so you can easily switch between bank accounts when sending your transfers across your business locations. If you’re managing multiple locations, linking multiple bank accounts also helps avoid sending your deposits to a closed bank account.
To link multiple external bank accounts to your Square account:
From Account & Settings in your online Square Dashboard, click Bank Accounts.
Under All locations, click the linked bank account next to the location of the bank account you want to update.
From the drop-down menu, select the verified bank account you want to add to that location. If you do not see the bank account you want to link, select Add external bank account and proceed through the bank verification process.
Click Update linked account > Done. Square will send a confirmation email to the email address associated with your account.
To confirm the change, you’ll need to click the link in the email within the next 24 hours or your new bank account will not be verified.
Note: You can only have one linked bank account per Square location at this time.
