  • What’s the difference between Square for Retail POS and Square Point of Sale?

    Square for Retail is a comprehensive, all-in-one POS solution designed specifically for retail businesses. Square for Retail builds on features from the standard Square Point of Sale and includes advanced functionality to help retailers run their businesses more efficiently.

    Compare Square Point of Sale and Square for Retail Free and Plus plans to find the best POS solution for your business.

  • How do I switch from my current solution?

    It’s simple and fast to sign up for Square for Retail. If you currently use SumUp, Epos Now, Clover, or another similar retail POS system, Square for Retail will likely fit your needs with a user-friendly interface. Just select your plan, sign up and import your inventory. You can easily transfer your existing inventory with bulk intake importing.

    You can rely on transparent pricing and no long-term contracts. And if you need help, Square Support is here for you.

  • Can I upgrade my Square for Retail plan?

    You can upgrade from the Free Retail plan to the Plus plan by subscribing to it here. You’ll be able to use all existing features, and you’ll only have to set up the added functionality included with your upgrade. During your 30-day free trial of the Retail Plus plan, you’ll be given the option to pick your plan. If you don’t choose one, you’ll automatically be downgraded to the Free Retail plan.

    To upgrade to the custom Premium plan, contact our sales team.

  • Can I downgrade my Square for Retail plan?

    You always have the option to downgrade your subscription from Plus to Free in your Dashboard. When you downgrade, you’ll see messaging in your Dashboard letting you know which features you’ll lose, like certain smart inventory management features, multi-location stock management and barcode label printing. You can see and compare plan features on our pricing page.

    You can also pause your subscription at any time from your Dashboard. When you pause a subscription, you will not be billed. You can resume at any time, and your account will be ready for you without losing your past data.
