Manage Notifications with the Square for Retail app

With Square for Retail, you have access to an in-app Notification Centre that centralizes all your notifications across the Square for Retail app. You can receive and read account alerts, new feature announcements and Square news – all from one easy-to-access place.

Note: Notification Centre is currently available for Square for Retail on iOS devices (iPhone and iPad). It is not available for Square Register at this time.

Account Notifications

Account notifications like order alerts, disputes and sales trends are indicated by a blue numbered badge overlaying the navigation menu.

Your POS Notifications

Your POS notifications, such as insights on how to improve your POS and new product features, are indicated by a blue badge overlaying the navigation menu.

Urgent Notifications

Urgent notifications such as a frozen account are indicated by a red warning badge overlaying the navigation menu. An urgent notification badge is also larger than other account notifications.
