Term Definition
Your Customers The number of customers that have purchased from you within a given period of time. Customers are identified based on their payment card. Purchases from Cash and Other Tender are excluded entirely.
Returning Customers Returning Customers are any buyers in a given period that have purchased from you anytime before. A customer is classified as Returning based on their payment card; purchases from Cash or Other Tender are excluded entirely.
New Customers New Customers are any buyers within a given period of time – as far as Square can tell through previous card payments – that have never purchased with you before. Purchases from Cash and Other Tender are excluded entirely.
Customer Spending On average, your Total Collected per Customer Visit. Total Collected includes Tax and Tip. No sale transactions are not included in this calculation.
Customer Visits On average, your Visits per Customer in a given period.
Customer Frequency Customer Frequency is a view of how often your customers visit in the last 30 days, and how much they spend per month. Improving the number of monthly visits over time is an indicator of loyalty and ultimately customer value. These values are based on customers that pay with their payment card.
Customer Recency Customer Recency is the amount of time that has passed since a customer’s last purchase with their payment card. It shows the opportunity to bring now-disengaged customers back into your store.
