Whether you need to quickly process a sale for one of your customers or review your transaction reporting for a specific time frame, Square Register allows you to do it all — and the customer facing display allows for easy, contactless payments to ensure safety for both your buyers and team members.
Note: Square Register does not support or read file attachments.
From the Checkout screen, enter a custom amount, add an item from your Library or Favorites page, or use a barcode scanner to scan the item’s UPC/SKU.
Your customer can either insert, tap, or swipe their card using the customer-facing display, as well as choose to enter their information after the sale to receive an email or text message receipt.
In the case that your internet becomes temporarily unavailable, you can continue to take payments in Offline Mode. To do so, tap ≡ More > Settings > Checkout > Offline Mode on your Square Register and toggle on Allow Offline Mode. Learn more about accepting payments on your Square Register.
Note: For your team members to enable or disable Offline Mode, they will need to have the Configure Checkout Settings box checked in their Permissions setting. Team members without this permission granted can still process payments in Offline Mode, but will be unable to enable or disable Offline Mode.
From the navigation bar on your Square Point of Sale screen, tap Transactions.
Review your transaction history in chronological order, or use the search bar to locate transactions based on card number, phone number, customer name, receipt number, notes and/or item name.
Once you’ve located the transaction in question, you can take actions such as issuing a refund or resending a receipt. You’ll also have insights into the transaction as a whole, including items sold, payment method used, and customers associated with the transaction. Learn more about reviewing your transaction history through the online Square Dashboard.
