New in Square's App Marketplace: 'If This, Then That'

It’s awesome when things are automated. And it especially rules when you’re running a small business—fewer interruptions, more streamlining.
So today, we’re excited to announce that you can now integrate your Square payment, refund, and settlement data with a cool tool called IFTTT, which stands for “If This Then That.”

Here’s how it works: You link your Square account with IFTTT and then select one of the “Square Recipes.” If a Square Recipe’s trigger is met, IFTTT will produce an action—like add a new row to a Google spreadsheet, send a text message, or post a tweet. Hence, if this, then that.

Scenario: You own an antiques store and want to recognize your staff for great work. So you set up an IFTTT Recipe that sends out a congratulatory message to your employees whenever they make a sale over a certain amount. You could even include a fist bump emoji for extra effect.

On the flip side, if you have to dish back a big refund, IFTTT can send an alert so that you can follow up with the customer quickly.
