Create and Manage Item Modifiers

If you need customisable options – toppings, add-ons or special requests –  create item modifiers. Modifiers that are applied to items will display on your customers’ digital receipts, inTransactions in your online Dashboard and in the Item Details report. 

Unlike price points used for sizes, colours or SKUs, item modifiers don’t decrease inventory counts if inventory management is turned on.

Create Item Modifiers Online

  1. From Items in your online Square Dashboard,  click Modifiers > Create Modifier Set.

  2. Enter the modifier information and click Save.

In your Item Library, you’ll see your modifier sets when creating and editing items. Tick the box next to the modifier set to apply it to an item.
