Yes. You can create automatic discounts from your online Square Dashboard based on items, categories, time of day, and period of time — so you can create discounts for happy hour specials and seasonal sales.
Yes. You can create post-tax discounts for things like manufacturer discounts and instant rebates. When a post-tax discount is applied, the item being discounted will be taxed at the original price instead of the discounted price. Learn how to create post-tax dicounts.
Yes. You can create a quantity-based discount at any time from your online Square Dashboard. Choose to have discount trigger when either a) an exact number, or b) a minimum number of items are added to the cart.
Yes. Customer based discounts allow you to create and link discounts to Customer Groups from your online Square Dashboard. The discounts will automatically apply when a customer from the Customer Group is added to a transaction. Also, any customer added to a Customer Group with an associated discount will automatically receive the discount during a transaction.
Conditional discounts only apply to a single item in your cart. For example: say you create a Buy One, Get One discount rule, so each time a customer buys a sandwich, they’ll receive a discounted bag of chips or soda. At this time, there is not a way to create a discount that will trigger when you add both chips and a soda. The discount will apply to the first item you add to your cart, but it will not apply towards both.
Only one automatic discount will apply to each item. The Square app will apply the discount most favorable to your customer. When applying Buy One, Get One Free discounts, the discount will be applied to the lower priced matched item(s). In other words, if a Buy One, Get One Free discount applies to three items priced at $20, $15, and $10, then the discount would qualify with the $20 item and apply to the $15 item.
When a discount is applied manually outside of your specified rules, a passcode is required. For example, If you are running a flash sale and a customer was in line to check out when the sale expired, the discount can be manually applied by an employee with the appropriate team permission enabled.
After toggling on “Auto Apply to Items and Categories,” you can apply automatic discounts to all items by selecting the checkbox next to Items. If you want to select a subset of items to include, you can select up to 100 categories or individual items.
Yes. By using information stored in your Customer Directory, you can create discounts that will automatically apply to buyers in your Customer Groups once they are added to the sale. Once associated, the discounts will work across all Point of Sale devices.
Discounts for customer groups can be created through your online Square Dashboard or on the Square Point of Sale app on iOS devices. Discounts can also be configured via Square’s Catalog API. Learn more in the Catalog API Overview and Catalog API Requirements.
