With Split Tender, customers can easily split a bill or use multiple forms of tender to complete a payment with Square. For each form of tender accepted, a separate receipt will be issued. Each receipt will display the total sale amount, all items sold and the type of tender used. To use Split Tender, make sure your app is up to date.

Note: Remember, when you accept cash or other tender payments, Square doesn’t actually process any funds.

  • Tapping the arrow at the top of your screen before completing an entire sale will clear any amount previously recorded for this payment.
