Software built for simplicity.
Square Point of Sale 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.
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.
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 point of sale. Every transaction is linked to an employee, which speeds up reconciling tips and commissions.
Multiple locations, one account.
Edit your menu, employee timecards, and prices for different locations from anywhere, all through your Square Dashboard.
