The Hottest New Features We Launched in February

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

New rewards for referring friends to Square

Have you checked out Square’s Referral Program? Here’s how it works: When you refer another business to Square, they get to process $1,000 in credit or debit card transactions for free after signing up, and you do too. (1) And now you can choose to receive discounts on hardware. Head to your Square Dashboard to share your referral link with a business looking to join Square.

There’s customer attribution in Virtual Terminal

Now, after you complete a payment in Virtual Terminal, you can attribute that transaction to a specific customer. Learn more about personalizing your customer experience in our Support Center.

New roles in Employee Management

You can now designate a trusted employee or business partner as your Authorized Representative — the person who can discuss account-specific information with Square’s customer success team.

Your Authorized Representative can get in touch to ask questions about account details, from change of address to transfer and transaction status. You do not need to subscribe to Employee Management to use this feature. Learn how to set it up.

A new and improved Square Loyalty Dashboard

Square Loyalty has a redesigned Dashboard for sellers. It includes new graphs to help you better understand how your loyalty program is doing by time and location, and a new activity stream to give you a clearer timeline of your loyalty transactions for improved program management. Learn more about the improved Loyalty Dashboard.
