webster-city-iowa
We’re constantly releasing tools to help you start, run, and grow your business.

In August, we launched a bunch of cool new features. To make sure you’re getting the most out of Square, here’s a roundup.

Square Point of Sale supports new receipt printers

Square Point of Sale now supports five new receipt printers, including four popular Epson models (TM-T88V, TM-m10, TM-T20I, and TM-U220) and Star Micronics mPop. Now you have more freedom to choose the printer that works best for your business, and can connect to your device via Bluetooth, Ethernet, or USB.

Reprint order tickets with Square Point of Sale on iPad

Now you can reprint an order ticket from three different places within the Square Point of Sale app. Next time your printer runs out of paper, you can reprint the order ticket from the current cart, the Transactions tab, or the open ticket list. This feature is currently available for iPad, with Android coming soon.

Sync Square Invoices with your inventory

Square Invoices now syncs with your inventory. When you sell items via an invoice, your inventory is automatically adjusted so that your quantity is always accurate.

Add Mobile Staff to Employee Management

Now you can easily invite your field staff to create a Square account and take payments in Offline Mode or issue refunds on your business’s behalf. Add your employees to the “mobile staff” role in the Employees section of your Dashboard and mobilize your team with no extra cost.

Receive purchase orders from the Square Retail app

You can now receive purchase orders directly from the Square Retail app. When your purchase orders come in, you can receive them on Square Dashboard or directly from the Square Retail app.

You also can add optional fees to your order — like shipping and taxes — to accurately reflect costs in your cost of goods sold report. View the status of all your purchase orders in the app, and see whether orders have been fully received, partially received, or not yet received, and on which date to expect them.

Try it today with the Square Retail app.

Customize your free eGift cards

You can now upload any image to fully customize Square eGift Cards for your business. Free eGift cards are available to all Square sellers and provide an affordable, easy way to promote gift cards to your customers. Configure your eGift cards in your Square Dashboard.

New custom fields, customer notes, and reminders in Customer Directory

You can now add custom fields to your Customer Directory, giving you more control and flexibility over what customer information you collect. Additionally, new customer notes and reminders help you manage relationships with each customer by keeping track of when notes are added to each profile, and by whom. Need to follow up with a customer at a specific point in time? Set a reminder in their profile and get an alert when it’s time to reach out.
