Print Order Tickets with Square for Retail

With Square for Retail, you can easily connect a printer to your device to print order tickets.

After the feature is turned on, new orders will automatically print from your supported printing device. Any new orders will also be highlighted green in the Orders section of your online Square Dashboard and in your Square for Retail app to differentiate from existing orders.

Print Single Items per Order Ticket

As mentioned above, you can assign item categories to different printer stations and print a single item per order ticket. This is useful if you need to send specific items to different prep stations or service counters to fulfil orders.

To get started, be sure to assign your items to specific categories. Then, you can assign categories to print at each station. To do so:

  1. From the Square for Retail app, tap the three horizontal lines and select Settings > Hardware > Printers.

  2. Under Use this printer for, select either In-store order tickets or Order tickets with fulfilment and toggle on Use this printer for in-store order tickets or Use this printer for order tickets with fulfilment, respectively.

  3. Toggle on Single item per ticket if you want to print a single item per ticket. This is useful if you need to send specific items to different prep stations or service counters to fulfil orders.

  4. Select the categories you’d like to print at this printer station. Single item printing will only apply to the categories you select.

  5. Tap Save.

  6. Repeat these steps for each of your printer stations.

Print Compact Tickets

You can also remove the margin at the top of each ticket to save on space for printed order tickets. This can maximise your ticket space for large orders and save on printer paper and ink. To get started:

  1. From the Square for Retail app, tap the three horizontal lines and select Settings > Hardware > Printers.

  2. Under Use this printer for, go to Order tickets with fulfilment and toggle on Use this printer for order tickets with fulfilment.

  3. Toggle on Compact tickets if you want to print order tickets without the margin at the top. 

  4. Tap Save.
