Manage Multiple Locations with Square

Square has tools for businesses of all sizes. Square offers free multi-location management features including linked locations and transfer options, per-location item libraries, device management for security and premium multi-location reports. You can also subscribe for additional team logins as needed.

If your business has multiple locations, you can manage all of them right from your online Square Dashboard. You can create unique business profiles for each location with specific working hours and individual bank accounts or tags to differentiate transfers. You can also manage devices by location with device codes.

When viewing your online Square Dashboard, you’ll notice an orange or black bar at the top of some pages, this is to alert you that you’re viewing location-specific information.

Note: There is a 300-location limit per master account.

Create locations

To create additional locations, visit Locations in online Square Dashboard and click Create Location. Once you add a new location, you can’t delete locations, but you can deactivate a location at any time. Inactive accounts will still be visible and can be reactivated at any time.

Add the following information about each location:

Business Name and Nickname

Choose a business name and nickname for your location. The business name appears on your customers’ card statements and digital receipts. If you don’t have a business name, describe your goods or services and city (for instance, ‘Massage therapy – Chicago’). The nickname is an internal name for your location and won’t be seen by your customers.

Bio and Location Type

Enter a brief bio about your business. Short descriptions are effective and easy to remember. Select the location type: Physical Location for a physical shopfront or Mobile Location if you don’t have a physical location. Use Mobile Location if you are a mobile business, selling online, delivery or delivery-only, or just to manage the additional settings.

Business Address

Enter your address and Eircode. If you selected Physical Location, your business address will show on customer receipts. Mobile location addresses are hidden.

Contact Information

Enter your location’s email address and phone number. You can also add your social media channels and website here.


Your branding information applies to the look and feel of your receipts, invoices, appointment bookings and marketing. Add your logo by clicking + Upload Logo. The recommended size is at least 200x200 pixels for framed images and 1280x648 pixels for full-width images. Framed logos work everywhere in Square. Full-width logos can be displayed in large canvases like the header of a receipt or invoice.

Square Location Logo Upload

To add a profile image for your Point of Sale background, click on the image icon in this section. The profile image will appear in the background of your checkout screen in Point of Sale on devices associated with this location. The recommended size is 2328x1144 pixels.

Bank Information

Select the bank account to be used for transfers.

Note: All payments for this location will be transferred into the selected account.


The language you choose for this location will be used in Square emails and customer receipts.

Match Item Library

If you want to match the item library from another location, select the location to match from the drop-down menu. Note: This action will reset the item library for the new location and cannot be undone.

Edit location information

You can edit locations at any time from Locations in online Square Dashboard. Just select the location, edit the information and click Save.

Note: From your Account Settings on your online online Square Dashboard or Square POS app, you can update your business and location business name. Your Business Name and Locations Business Name shouldn’t change often and can only be updated three times. Depending on the name change you are making, your account will be subject to review.

Edit your VAT number

You can add or edit your business’ VAT number from the Location Details page:

  1. Go to Account & Settings in your online Square Dashboard.

  2. Click BusinessinformationLocations, then select the relevant location for your business.

  3. On the Location Details page, scroll to the Business ID Numbers section, then add or change the VAT number for that location.

  4. Click Save to validate your VAT number and apply your changes.

VAT numbers are validated per location and are verified against known government records. If you have multiple locations that use the same VAT number, you must make any changes across all applicable locations.

Add Transfer Tags

Transfer tags help identify transfers to the same bank account from separate business locations. You can add a transfer tag for each location to quickly see which location is responsible for each transfer.

Switch Between Locations

To switch between locations from the Square Point of Sale app:

  1. From the navigation bar, tap ≡ More.

  2. Tap Switch location.

  3. Choose the location that you want to log in to.

Note: This feature is only available on the Square Point of Sale app.

Manage Multiple Businesses using Square Launchpad

If you have multiple services or businesses with Square, you can navigate to each one using Square Launchpad. The centralised view is designed for you to easily access all of your businesses in one, streamlined place. You can toggle between card view or list view or use the search bar to quickly locate your business.

You can also manage your personal settings by clicking Account & Settings > Personal Details to manage sign in information, two-step verification, security options and account preferences such as language or time zone.

Multi-Location Item Management

Manage your items by location from your full access team member account. Items and item settings, including modifiers, discounts and taxes can all be assigned to specific locations.

Assign items to specific locations

  1. From the Items section of your online Square Dashboard, click Create Item or click an existing item.

  2. Select applicable locations and save your changes.

  3. If you add an item to a new location, check the current item settings (modifier set, discounts and taxes).

Price overrides

If you have multiple locations in your Square account, you’ll have the ability to create and manage price overrides. Price overrides can be used to set the price of an item to be different between multiple locations without needing to create a location-specific item. To create a price override in your online Square Dashboard:

  1. Navigate to Items > Item Library, and choose an Item you’d like to set a price override for.

  2. Click a variation to edit variation details, and then click add price override.

  3. Choose your price and select a location to apply the price override to. Once this is complete, click Done to save your changes.

Multiple External Bank Accounts on File

You can link multiple external bank accounts to your Square account, so you can easily switch between bank accounts when sending your transfers across your business locations. If you’re managing multiple locations, linking multiple bank accounts also helps avoid sending your deposits to a closed bank account.

To link multiple external bank accounts to your Square account:

  1. Go to Account & Settings > Business information > Bank Accounts from your online Square Dashboard.

  2. Under All locations, click the linked bank account next to the location of the bank account you want to update.

  3. From the drop-down menu, select the verified bank account you want to add to that location. If you don’t see the bank account you want to link, select Add external bank account and proceed through the bank verification process.

  4. Click Update linked account > Done. Square will send a confirmation email to the email address associated with your account.

To confirm the change, you’ll need to click the link in the email within the next 24 hours or your new bank account won’t be verified.

Note: You can only have one linked bank account per Square location at this time.
