Skip the Receipt Screen to Speed Up Checkout

To speed up your checkout flow with the Square app, Square Terminal, or Square Register during peak business hours, you can skip the receipt screen. This allows you complete a sale without prompting a customer to enter their phone number or email address, helping you quickly transition to the next customer in line.

Turn on Skip Receipt

  1. From the Square app, visit Settings > Checkout > Signature and Receipt. On Square Register, tap the down arrow > Settings > Under Checkout Options, tap Receipt.

  2. Toggle on Skip Receipt Screen.
