Repeat your Square Marketing email campaigns
Do you have a monthly coupon or other campaign you’d like to email multiple times? You can now set your Square Marketing campaigns to repeat automatically, selecting how often and how many times you’d like them to send. Set it up when you schedule your next campaign.
Custom gift cards now available in smaller quantities
Gift cards are a simple way to bring new customers to your business and boost your sales. But most providers only customize gift cards for orders of 500, 1000, or more, so customizing cards can get pricey. But don’t worry, now we offer custom gift cards in packages friendly for smaller sellers. Order custom gift cards in quantities as low as 250 today.
Virtual Terminal notes field is now visible on receipts and transaction reports
With Virtual Terminal, you can take payments directly from your computer — no hardware or app needed. By turning your computer into a cloud pos with virtual terminal, the notes field helps you organize your transactions, leave a note for your customers, refer to paper invoice numbers, etc. You can now easily track these notes in your buyers’ receipts and transaction reports. Buyers automatically see these notes on their receipts and you can export them in a CSV through your Square transaction report.
