  • Can I upgrade my Square for Retail plan?

    You can upgrade from the Free Retail plan to the Plus plan by subscribing to it here. You’ll be able to utilize all existing features, and you’ll only have to set up the added functionality included with your upgrade. After your 30-day free trial, you’ll be given the option to pick your plan. If you don’t choose one, you’ll automatically be downgraded to the Free Retail plan.

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

  • Can I downgrade my Square for Retail plan?

    You always have the option to downgrade your subscription from Plus to Free in your Dashboard. When you downgrade, you’ll see messaging in your Dashboard letting you know which features you’ll lose, like certain smart inventory management features, multi-location stock management, and barcode label printing. You can see and compare plan features on our pricing page.

    You can also pause your subscription at any time from your Dashboard. When you pause a subscription, you will not be billed. You can unpause at any time and your account will be ready for you without losing your past data.
