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

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

Square for Retail has a new look

We’ve updated the Square Retail app’s look and feel. Images from Dashboard now automatically populate in the app search to ensure accuracy. It’s also quicker to apply discounts on individual items and find cart actions in checkout — just tap the Actions menu. Learn more about Square for Retail design updates.

Automate your recurring payments with Square Invoices

It’s easier than ever to automate your recurring invoices. You can customize the frequency of your billing (monthly, daily, annually), and if your customer has saved her card on file and authorized recurring payments, you can check a box to make future payments on the recurring series automatic. It’s less work for you, so you save time for the things you love. Learn more about recurring payments or create a recurring invoice now.

Increased limits for Instant and Scheduled Transfer

Now existing Square sellers are eligible to transfer up to $10,000 per transfer with instant or scheduled transfer — up from $2,500. You get access to more of your money, faster. Start using instant and scheduled transfer.

Square Payroll integrates with QuickBooks Online

Now you can send your Square Payroll data directly to QuickBooks Online, saving time, reducing errors, and simplifying bookkeeping. Payroll data can be sent manually or automatically to get a real-time view of your business finances. Set up the Square Payroll QuickBooks Online integration.
