Appointments for Individuals + Team Management

Appointments for Teams allows you to create staff profiles for booking services. However, some Appointments sellers don’t need the calendar or booking features for their staff. That’s where Team Management comes in. While Square Appointments for Teams utilises Team Management’s features, there’s a different billing structure if you want to limit your staff’s access to the point of sale, without allowing them access to the Appointments calendar.

This subscription option is considered Appointments for Individuals (since only one person will be accessing the calendar) + Team Management. While Appointments for Individuals is free, for every staff profile you create, your monthly billing will be $35 per month per location, and you’ll pay Square’s standard processing fee.

Here are some examples of billing with Square Appointments for Individuals + Team Management:
