To speed up your checkout flow with the Square Point of Sale app during peak business hours, you can skip the receipt screen. This allows you complete a sale without prompting a customer to enter their phone number or email address, helping you quickly transition to the next customer in line.

Turn on Skip Receipt

  1. From the Square app, visit Settings > Signature.
  2. Toggle on Skip Receipt.

Skip Receipt Frequently Asked Questions

How does skipping the receipt screen affect automatic receipts and Square Marketing? 

With this feature turned on, customers will be unable to subscribe to automatic receipts, nor can they receive emails sent with Square Marketing.

Will skipping the receipt screen speed up cash or other tender transactions?

Yes! As soon as you tap Charge and tender the payment, you’ll see the change due, confirmation of the payment, and return to beginning of the checkout flow within a matter of seconds.

Can I still print receipts if I skip the receipt screen?

Credit card transaction receipts will automatically print only if Sign and Tip on printed receipts is turned on and you require signatures. For all other transactions, a receipt will not print if Skip Receipt Screen is enabled.  

What if my customer wants a receipt? How do I provide one?

From the Square app, tap the three horizontal lines. Then tap Transactions > locate and tap a payment > Issue Receipt

From your Dashboard, click Sales > Transactions > select a payment > Send Receipt
