Alise Bailey, Editor

We’re constantly releasing tools to help you start, run, and grow your business.

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.

Square POS now integrates with Brecknell 6700U scales

If you’re using Square Point of Sale on an Android device, Square Register, or Square Terminal, you can sync your Square POS directly with Brecknell 6700U scales. Connect your scale via USB, weigh an item, and automatically see the amount and price per unit on your POS screen. You’ll speed up your line and avoid manual math and data entry. Shop for a Brecknell scale.

Introducing prequalification for Square Installments

Now, your customers can find out how much they’re prequalified to spend at your business—before they start shopping. Why prequalification for Square Installments?

  • It’s fast. Prequalification only asks customers for a few pieces of information.
  • It’s convenient. Customers know how much they’re prequalified to spend at your business—before deciding what to buy.
  • It’s smart. It doesn’t affect their credit score to see what they prequalify for.

Learn more about Square Installments and see how easy it is for your customers to find out how much they’re prequalified to spend at your business.


Get discovered by more clients online — your way.

Keep online orders and bookings in one place with a custom website that matches your style.

Introducing easier-to-use permissions from Square

Square Team Management has revamped its permissions to give you greater control over your Square account. You can now:

  • Allow your team to view limited reporting with new reporting permissions.
  • Specify how much control your team members have (or don’t) over your business and device settings.
  • Assign “full access” for all permissions to a co-owner, manager, or franchise owner.

Permissions Redesign
