Get Started with Add-ons

Square Add-ons are tools designed for your business needs. From managing teams to marketing solutions, you can add tools to your point of sale to create an integrated solution.

You can discover new tools and add them to your point of sale straight from your Add-on Library. Any products or features you already use will show as Added in your Add-on Library. Here are some examples of what you’ll find in the Add-on Library:

Add-ons make customising your point of sale easy, so everything you need is at your fingertips. You can quickly discover, install, and manage in-app Square Add-ons through the Add-on Library located in your Square Point of Sale app. All products featured in this library integrate directly into your Square Point of Sale to help you run your business more smoothly.
