Accept Cash, Cheques, and Other Tender
To keep your payment records in one place, you can use Square to record and track cash, cheques, gift cards from third-party services and other types of payments.
There is no fee to accept other tender types. When you accept other tender types, Square doesn’t process any funds and functions only as an organizational tool. Money for these transactions are exchanged directly between you and your customer and will not be transferred by Square.
You can also customise your checkout screen by toggling and reordering what Payment Types are available at checkout.
If you’re using or plan to use a cash drawer for your business, learn more about cash drawer management with Square.
Troubleshooting Uncompleted Payments
If you accept Cash or Other Tender without an Internet connexion, the payments will be recorded in the All Transactions section of the app under Uncompleted Payments.
When your Wi-Fi or data service is restored, the payments will finish processing and will be recorded in both the Transactions section of the app and in Transactions on your Square Dashboard. Receipts associated with these payments will be sent to their recipients at this time.
