Square is more than just a little white reader. It makes it easy for you to start, run, and grow your business with reliable, affordable hardware, and powerful, intuitive software. Get started today at http://square.com/au.

You can manage multiple locations, employees, adjust menu items, track sales and inventory, from anywhere with the Square Point of Sale App and Dashboard. Download the Square Point of Sale app for free from the App Store or Google Play.


You probably know Square as the little white reader that lets you accept payments anywhere.

But there’s so much more Square can do to help you work smarter and save time. It all starts with our Point of Sale app

The point of sale app is simple, powerful and highly customisable.

It works in all kinds of setups, including Square’s beautiful hardware,

but right now, we’re going to focus on the apps.

First off, you can name and organise your products and you can take pictures of them for faster checkout and less employee training.

So, let’s take a payment for some baby toys. Hit the item, add another, then…

You’re ready for them to insert or tap.

It works perfectly, whether you’re selling clothes, coffee, or cradles.

But the point of sale app does more than just take orders…

It lets you add employees so they can clock in and out, and give them secure permissions to keep control of what they can see and do.

And through digital receipts, your customers can send you feedback directly, which shows up on your Dashboard.

What’s your Dashboard you ask? Dashboard is a free resource from Square that’s built to help you make better business decisions.

When you open it up, you’ll see this main page with high level metrics, and then you can click to see your sales summary, best selling items, and over here, a comparison to previous performance.

With real time information, you can keep track of your business constantly…

..from anywhere. You can access your Dashboard with the mobile app, whether you’re at another location, or at the beach.

You can manage multiple locations all from the same app.

You can click here to see sales from different locations and see which employees have sold what.

You can also integrate 3rd party software seamlessly through Square Dashboard. You can sync with apps for bookkeeping, tax prep, e-commerce and more. All to help you save time, work smarter and make more.

With the Point of Sale and Dashboard apps, it’s easy to get started, train employees, and manage items, inventory and locations - all through your Square account.
