Item Variants or Price Points

Price points offer quick access to item variants, such as sizes, colours or SKUs. When processing a sale, item variants will display as options in the Square Point of Sale app and on your online store.

Also, once you’ve set up your item unit types and precision, you can create an item variation to be sold in either whole or decimal quantities.

Unlike item modifiers, which are usually used for food (toppings, add ons or special requests) – variants or price points will reduce your inventory count if you’ve enabled inventory management. Keep in mind: Item modifiers will not reduce your inventory levels.
