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, on the Transactions tab of your online dashboard, and in the Item Details report. 

Unlike price points, which are used for sizes, colors, or SKUs, item modifiers don't decrease inventory counts if you've enabled inventory management

Note: At this time, item modifiers can only be created from your online Square Dashboard, an iPad, or an Android device.
