With Square, you can manually or automatically apply pre-set percentage or euro amount discounts to your sales. Learn more about creating discounts.
Note: Percentage discounts can be applied to an entire sale or to individual items. Euro amount discounts can only be applied to an entire sale at this time, unless you’re using automatic discounts.
Apply Discounts on a Tablet
Apply discounts manually from the Library tab, Favourites tab or by tapping an item in the cart and toggling on the discount. If you have set up automatic discounts, they will be added to the sale when the rules you have set have been met.
Note: If discounts are not applying according to rules you set up in your dashboard, try updating the Square app to make sure you have the latest version and features.
Apply Discounts to an Entire Sale
From the Square Point of Sale app, select a discount from your item list in the Checkout screen or Favourites tab if you’ve saved discounts to it.
Toggle on the pre-created discount you’d like to apply. Note: A manually-added automatic discount will apply to all items in the cart, not just items selected in that discount’s rules.
The applied discount will appear as a Discounts line item within the current sale.
Apply Discounts to Individual Items
Once items have been added to your sale:
Under Review Sale in the Checkout screen, tap the item you’d like to discount.
Toggle on the pre-created discount you’d like to apply.
Apply Discounts on a Smartphone or Tablet
Apply a Discount to an Entire Sale
From Checkout, tap the Library tab to view all items.
Tap the discount you’d like to apply to add it to the current sale. Note: A manually-added automatic discount will apply to all items in the cart, not just items selected in that discount’s rules.
Apply a Discount to an Individual Item
Tap Review Sale.
Tap the item you’d like to discount.
Tap the discount you’d like to apply to add it to the current sale.
Apply Multiple Discounts
If you apply multiple discounts to an entire sale, they’ll compound. Here’s an example:
A discount is added to a sale.
Square calculates the discounted sale total.
A second discount is added, which is applied to the total discounted sale price.
If you’re applying a combination of euro and percentage discounts, the percentage discount will be applied first followed by the euro amount discount.
Note: You can apply a specific discount to a given sale only once.
