Square for Retail on Terminal Beta

Thank you for opting into the Square for Retail on Terminal beta program.

If you have enabled automatic updates on your Terminal, you will now have the version you need to get started with the Square for Retail beta. No further updates are required. If not, please update your device so that you are on version 5.96 or above. To update your device, navigate to 'About Terminal' in Menu > Support.

To get started:

1. Power on your Terminal

2. Log out of your account

3. Sign back in using your email and password. You will then see the option to use Square for Retail as your Point of Sale.

Current Limitation:

While most of the Retail app features will be accessible on the Terminal, some Retail Plus inventory features, like Stock Overview, will not be available initially.

We’re excited to hear about experience with this new software. As a participant in the beta program, you can share your feedback, ask questions, and report any issues you may encounter within the

Square for Retail on Terminal group

on the Beta Community. Alternatively, you can send an email to
