Transaction Search

Square’s transaction search allows you to search for credit or debit card charges made using the Square App.

You can search transactions by:

  • Tapping the customer's original payment card directly on Square hardware (to filter card transactions paid to your business)

  • Customer information (name, phone number, email)

  • Credit or debit card number used in the transaction (using the last 4 digits of the customer's card)

  • Receipt ID (located at the bottom of the receipt sent)

  • Item or ticket name

  • Item, bill, tender or ticket note

  • Device name

Note: Related transactions within the last year of the search date will be listed in your search results.
