Beta | Square for Retail app Redesign

Square for Retail redesigned the Retail Point of Sale, so you can customize the layout of your catalogue and optimize your checkout workflow by visually organizing the items, actions and functions most useful to you during checkout. This new design is available in Beta now, and we’re accepting more testers.

Get Started

With the new Square Retail Design you’ll have two default pages:

  • Favourites – Discounts, Customers and Saved Carts will be your default tiles before you customize your layout. Any favourites previously created in Square Point of Sale or Retail will also transfer over.

  • All items – All of your categories will have a tile. Just tap to view items within each category.

Note: Any favourites created in Square Point of Sale or Retail previously will also transfer over.

Customize your pages and grid

  1. Tap and hold any tile to switch to setup mode.

  2. From there, you can move tiles to your preferred layout.

  3. Select Done to save your changes.

Edit Pages

  1. Tap the page title to show the editing icon.

  2. Tap the editing icon next to the page name to edit the page. 

  3. From here, you can add new tiles for items, categories, groups or actions.

  4. To remove a page, tap Remove Page. This does not delete any items, categories or discounts from your account, only the page that organizes them.

  5. Tap Add a page to create a new page

Add and edit tiles within pages

You can add and edit tiles for individual items, categories, display groups or actions. 

  • Item: Creates a single item tile. Add multiple item tiles at the same time by checking the boxes by the item name.
