It’s intelligent

Powerful inventory tools.

More than just a stock count, the Square for Retail POS system gives you powerful inventory management tools that streamline your processes and reduce errors.

Never run low

Get alerts when stock is low, then create and send purchase orders to your vendors in just a few clicks.

Multilocation ready

Easily track, adjust, or transfer inventory across all your locations—no matter how many stores you have. Create and print bar code labels, too.

More meaningful customer relationships.

Put your customer directory to work with the Square for Retail POS system, and get the insights you need to keep customers coming back.

Instant customer profiles

Automatically create customer profiles with every card transaction you accept, and keep track of important customer information and purchase history.

Instant customer groups

Square for Retail can automatically sort your customers into loyal, casual, and lapsed groups. And it’s easy to create custom groups, too.

Take notes for next time

Easily add notes and preferences to a customer’s profile and be ready to give everyone a personalized experience.

It’s intuitive

Competitive, custom rates

We can create custom pricing packages for some businesses that process more than $250K in card sales and have an average ticket size over $15. If that's you, get in touch—we'll even review your current statement with you. An average ticket size under $15 is unlikely to qualify for a custom rate.
