Customize Invoices and Receipts

You can customize the appearance of your invoices and customer-facing receipts from your online Square Dashboard. To do so, visit Account & Settings > Receipt. The appearance of both invoices and digital receipts is managed from this page.

If you have multiple locations, you can customize your receipt and invoice appearance for each location. 

Descriptive receipts and invoices help customers recognize purchases and prevent disputed payments.

Invoice Customization with Templates

You can also customize your Invoices with invoice templates or set a default template to use when creating a new invoice. Invoice templates automatically fill in your invoice  information, decreasing the amount of time and effort you’ll spend creating invoices. With each unique template you create, you can:

  • Customize basic details: add an invoice title and message that will be visible to your customer. You can also include an optional sale or service date to your invoices.

  • Save a default custom message: add your terms of service, cancellation policy, return policy or any other personalized message to your customized invoice in the Message field of your invoice.

  • Choose your payment settings: Pick your default payment settings for your invoices, such as setting your accepted payment methods, using card on file with a Square Invoice and adding a tipping option.

  • Add item-level notes: Add your item, select Customize and go to the Note section. Be sure to hit Save once you’ve selected your price point and taxes and added your note.

  • Share your invoice: Choose how you’ll send your invoice to your customers – via email or manually. You can also schedule payment reminders to be sent to your customer.

  • Add custom fields: With Invoices Plus, you can add a custom field – such as terms of service, cancellation policy, return policy, or any other personalized message – to your invoice and choose its placement within the template.
