How Square for Retail can help run all aspects of your retail business

(Source: Square)

Square is revolutionising the way small and medium-sized retailers can manage inventory and payments through a combination of next-generation hardware and custom-built software. 

Square’s Square for Retail POS is designed as a smart partner to connect every tool that keeps your retail business moving, allowing you to grow at scale, incorporating payments, inventory, e-commerce and beyond.

State-of-the-art software from Square allows retailers to accept every major payment type preferred by consumers – including Afterpay – both in-store and online, as well as enabling Apple’s Tap to Pay feature on iPhones. All of the retailer’s sales are automatically tracked in one place allowing inventory across all channels to be updated the instant a sale occurs. 

This month, Square is launching a special promotion for Australian retailers, offering 20 per cent off selected hardware – exclusively for companies with an Australian Square account. 

The hardware – Square Reader, Square Register, Square Terminal, and Square Stand – will help new users build their custom package of hardware to synchronise with their retail software. 

Michael Harms, owner of omnichannel retailer Barrowby Green, upgraded to Square Point of Sale for Retail when the company opened its first physical store. 

“I love the fact that it links to our Square website,” says Harms. “If I sold a product at a market or in-store, that product would also be deducted from the Online Store, which is really important when you have multiple places that you are selling.”

Square’s system also allows retailers to accept returns at any location and seamlessly process exchanges.

Online, Square’s Square Online eCommerce site allows any retailer to create a professional website, customised using their own builder or with design themes to suit your brand, sourced from Square’s library.

Square for Retail aims to streamline retail businesses so sales, inventory, purchase orders, customer directory and reports are integrated. (Check out this handy video about it here). The app works with retailers’ online Square Dashboard, along with iPad, iPhone, Square Terminal and Square Register, so connecting the dots (while optimising your business’ profitability) has never been easier. 

The systems have been adopted by retailers in multiple categories – fashion and accessories, food and groceries, furniture and homewares, and liquor stores are just some of the sectors where Square’s hardware and software is modernising the way retailers conduct their business.
