Price Items by Weight

You’re currently unable to fully integrate scales with the Square app to price items by weight. This is a popular feature request, so we’ll make an announcement if it becomes available.

In the meantime, the following options allow you to price items by weight:

  • Use a third-party scale and the Square app’s variable pricing feature.
  • E.g. Pre-program the weights of your items in the scale and enter those prices during the time of sale using a variable priced item.
  • Use individual items as a specific measure of weight.
  • E.g. Set a price of X for an item called “50 grammes”, and then if an item weighs 500 grammes, enter a quantity of 10.

Square doesn’t integrate directly with third party scales at this time, but the CAS 2000 Jr. scale can be pre-programmed to record weight and price.
