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

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

Note: Item modifiers can only be created from the online Square Dashboard, iPads, or Android devices.
