What is Square Payroll?

Square is a point-of-sale (POS) application designed to provide businesses with a reliable and fast POS system. It enables you to take payments using your iOS or Android devices and can be implemented on the counter or on-the-go. The system comes with a free downloadable software plus a Square magstripe reader, allowing payments via debit and credit cards. It also comes with real-time sales and inventory tracker, as well as item management platform.

The easy to set up and simple to use POS is built to help get your staff up and running quickly. It lets you drag and drop items and categories, customize your items grid, and bring popular items front and center. With the system, customers can choose between digital (email or text message) and printed receipts. Its open tickets and split tender feature keep tabs open to let your customers pay when it’s convenient as well as split a tab by cards or take payments multiple ways.

Square gives you the ability to manage inventory such as changing item details like price, name, or quantity in real time. Likewise, it allows you to manage employee access to data with employee passcodes and keep an eye out on who sold and refunded what. Furthermore, Square’s POS system lets your employees clock in and out right at your point of sale. Every transaction is linked to an employee, thereby speeding up reconciling tips and commissions.
