All the tools you need
Payments, digital receipts, open tickets, inventory, reports, and more—Square makes it all easy.
Powerful enough for every business
From retail to bakeries, Square’s POS system serves every kind of business.
Works on Apple and Android
The Square POS app is free to download. Use it as a mobile POS on a smartphone or on a tablet at your counter.
Always getting better
We’re always building new tools and features. Keep your business up to speed with free POS software updates.
Customize your counter. Take payments on the go.
No training necessary.
Square’s POS system is designed to get your staff up and running quickly. Drag and drop items and categories, customize your items grid, and bring popular items front and center.
Receipt and tipping options
Customers can choose between digital (email or text message) and printed receipts. Suggested tip options keep employees happy, too.
Open tickets and split tender
Keep tabs open and let your customers pay when it’s convenient. Split a tab by cards or take payments multiple ways.
Manage inventory in real time
Change item details like price, name, or quantity in real time. Track stock quantities and get email alerts when items run low.
Clear pricing, no surprises
Process Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express at 2.75% per swipe, chip card dip, or NFC payment. There are no long-term commitments or monthly fees, and Square’s point-of-sale software is free to download and free to use across all your mobile and countertop terminals.
Take payments offline
When your connection is down, your business doesn’t have to be. Take payments without a connection in Offline Mode and pay the usual 2.75% per swipe. Payments taken offline are automatically queued in your POS system and processed when your connection comes back.
Deposits the next business day
Know exactly when you’re getting paid. Square deposits money accepted with your POS terminal directly into your bank account in one to two business days. Want your funds even faster? With Instant Deposit, you can get deposits instantly, even on weekends and late at night.
Card information is encrypted at swipe, and each transaction is monitored to detect suspicious behavior. Square’s POS software never stores data on your device after a payment has been processed.
Make more informed business decisions.
When the work day is done, sign in to your free Square Dashboard from any computer. From new customer information to sales by item, see what’s working or where to improve.
Manage employee access.
Use Square’s POS software to control what data your employees can access with employee passcodes. Keep tabs on who sold and refunded what.
Timecards at the register
Square’s POS system lets employees clock in and out right at your register. Every transaction is linked to an employee, which speeds up reconciling tips and commissions.
Mobilize your staff
When lines get long, equip staff with Square Readers and a smartphone or tablet—send them out with their mobile POS systems to ring up customers.
Multiple locations, one account.
Edit your menu, employee timecards, and prices for different locations from anywhere, all through your Square Dashboard.
Reporting tools you can grow with
Filter reports by employee, location, and device. Create revenue-per-labor-hour reports to see what’s working and core multi-unit reports your accountant will love.
Open new locations in a few clicks
Set up new locations from anywhere with Square’s POS software. Quickly assign employees and build your item library, then start selling in your new store immediately.
Send invoices straight from your POS to your customers’ inboxes. They can pay securely with a few clicks.
