Set up your Square For Restaurants mobile POS Kit for Android

To use your Square for Restaurants mobile POS kit:

  1. Set up your Samsung phone.

    • Turn on the phone and follow any setup instructions. While this is an unlocked phone, you do not need to have any data plan to use the Restaurants POS mobile app.

  2. Set up your hardware.

    • Using the image below as a reference, insert the Square Reader for contactless and chip into the case with the card slot down and logo out. Then, place the phone into the case.

    • Once the kit is assembled, plug in both the phone and Square Reader to begin charging them. Note: you won’t need to remove the Square Reader from the case to charge it — plug it in the slot within the case.

      Set up your Restaurants mobile POS kit with Android device.

  3. Download the Square for Restaurants mobile Android app from the Google Play store.

  4. Once you download the app, create a mobile device code to log in to Square for Restaurants mobile POS and begin using your device. Mobile device codes are labeled “Restaurant - Mobile.”

Note: You will need either the free 30-day trial or the paid subscription of Square for Restaurants Plus to use the Square for Restaurants mobile POS kit.
