Item Status Badges for Square Online Items
Note: Display additional item status badges by upgrading your Square Online site.
You can display badges on items throughout your Square Online site that show your customers stock, sale, and other critical item information at a glance. Status badges can also be customized to match your site design, creating an easy and seamless shopping experience for anyone visiting your online store.
Note: The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) prohibits misleading “former price comparisons.” If you advertise or promote items at a discounted price, it’s your responsibility to ensure you’re meeting the FTC guidelines. We recommend consulting a legal expert if you have questions about the FTC guidelines.
To enable badges for your site items:
From your Square Online Overview page, go to Items > Item Preferences or Shared Settings > Item Preferences.
Under "Item statuses," select Edit to choose your badge options.
Toggle on Sale indicator to display a badge on items that are on sale.
Toggle on Low inventory indicator to display when an item's inventory drops below your specified quantity. Be sure to enter a quantity of two or above.
Toggle on Out of stock indicator to display a badge on out of stock items. If you opt to display your out of stock items, you can select Out of stock indicator to display when an item's stock drops to zero.
Select Save when finished.
You can also automatically display preorder or discount badges when setting up preorders and discounts from your Square Item Library.
To customize the design of your item status badges:
From your Square Online site editor, select Site design.
Under “Site elements,” select Badges.
Choose a color, shape, and the text to be displayed on your Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary badges.
Select Item badge styles to apply the styles you’ve created to each of your enabled badge types. You can also change the position of your badges on individual pages to display below or above text or on your images.
Publish your site to see the changes live.

You won’t see the badges on your website unless you have at least one item that either:
has a sale price
has an inventory count of your specified quantity or less
is sold out
is available for preorder
If you’ve manually marked an item as out of stock, it will automatically sync and display on your website, even if the sold out item status is disabled. This lets customers know that the item isn't available and prevents them from adding it to their cart.
