After your first purchase at a Square seller, you’ll have the option to provide your email address or phone number if you would like to receive digital receipts. If you provide an email address, you’ll start receiving automatic receipts delivered by Square at that email address for all purchases you make from Square sellers using the same card. Any card with that card number, regardless of the name on the card, will receive automatic receipts for purchases made at Square merchants to the initial email provided. Learn more about automatic receipts and shared cards.

If you provide a phone number to receive an SMS receipt from a Square merchant, this information will be pre-populated on the receipt screen for you to confirm during future purchases from Square merchants. You can edit the pre-populated phone number at the point of sale by tapping either field and entering new information.
