FAQ

  • Is Square for Restaurants right for my business?

    Square for Restaurants is a good fit for single and multi-location full-service restaurants, quick-service restaurants, fast-casual restaurants, bars, lounges, and multi-concept restaurants. If you’re a restaurant owner or manager using Micros, Aloha, Harbortouch, POSitouch, Toast POS, Upserve, or another POS system or POS software, Square for Restaurants can likely fit your needs at a lower cost. We now offer a free version of Square for Restaurants in addition to our paid plans.

  • How much does Square for Restaurants cost?

    We have three pricing plans. Our Free plan covers basic day-to-day service. For more complex needs, our Plus plan is $60 per month per location plus $40 per month per additional device, and our Premium plan starts at $299 per month. Plus and Premium include a 30-day free trial.

    All three plans cover unlimited device use and have a processing rate of 2.6% + 10¢. Custom pricing is available if you process more than $250,000 per year. For more details on our plans, visit our pricing page.

  • What’s included in each of the three pricing plans?

    All three Square for Restaurants plans include Fast Order Entry, Menu Manager, Table Management, Order Manager, Open Checks, Auto Gratuity, Remote Device Management, Multi-Location Management, the Square Team Management free plan, and 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT support.

    With the Plus plan, you gain features including Auto 86ing, Item Counts, Shared Device Settings, Advanced Reporting, Live Sales Reports, Shift Reports, Close of Day Reports, Square Team Plus, and 24/7 Support.

    Premium subscribers get everything listed above as well as custom pricing for additional Square tools, such as Square Payroll, Square Marketing, Square Loyalty, and Square Online.

    To see a complete list of features for each plan, visit our pricing page.

  • Is hardware included?

    Hardware is not included with Square for Restaurants subscriptions, but you can explore compatible kits and devices here to build a package that suits your needs. We also work with iPad and industry kitchen printers, receipt printers, cash drawers, and routers, so you can use your existing hardware as well.

  • Is the hardware bought or leased?

    All hardware, whether purchased as a one-time cost or financed, is bought. It’s 100% yours once you’ve completed payments.

  • How do I set up Square for Restaurants?

    You can sign up for the free version of Square for Restaurants or start a free 30-day trial of Square for Restaurants Plus here. Please note: You’ll need to use a computer to sign up. Setup is simple, and you can self-onboard with the Free and Plus plans. But if you need help, we offer one-on-one implementation services and 24/7 customer support for sellers on our Plus/Premium plans and M-F 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT customer support for sellers on our Free plan. To discuss a custom Premium plan contact our sales team.

  • Is Square Register compatible with Square for Restaurants?

    Today, Square Register is compatible with the Square for Restaurants Free plan and all of its POS features. In the future, Register will be fully compatible with our Plus and Premium plans, too. For now, you can still use Square for Restaurant Plus features such as Advanced Reporting, Square Device Settings, and the Team Management free plan from your Square Dashboard.

  • How do I set up Square for Restaurants on Square Register?

    Setup on Register is simple, and this support article explains everything you need to know. Note that you’ll need to update your software to the latest version (details on that here) and create a device code on your Square Dashboard before signing in and following the onscreen instructions. Reminder: Register is available with the Free Restaurants plan (Plus and Premium coming in 2021).

  • How do I switch from Square Point of Sale to a Restaurants plan?

    You can switch from Square Point of Sale to the Free or Plus Square for Restaurants plans by subscribing here. You’ll be able to utilize your existing features and setup. The only new setup will be for added functionality that’s included with your Restaurants plan.

  • How do I upgrade or downgrade my Square for Restaurants plan?

    You can upgrade from the Free restaurants plan to the Plus plan by subscribing to it here. You’ll be able to utilize all existing features and setup. The only new setup will be for the added functionality that’s included with your upgrade. After your 30-day free trial, you’ll be charged $60 per month per location. If you choose not to subscribe, you’ll be downgraded to the Free Restaurants plan, and you can continue to use the Restaurants POS system or choose to use Square Point of Sale.

    Square Register will be fully compatible with our Plus and Premium Plans in the future. For now, you can still choose to upgrade to Square for Restaurants Plus and be able to use various features such as Advanced Reporting, Square Device Settings, and the Team Management free plan from your Square Dashboard. You will also receive 24/7 support.

    You’ll have the option to keep your Team Plus subscription. (If you cancel it, you’ll still be able to utilize the Team Management free plan features). You’ll see messaging in your Dashboard letting you know which features you’ll lose with the downgrade. You can see and compare plan features on our pricing page.

    To upgrade to the custom Premium plan, contact our Sales team.
