  • Improve your efficiency by freeing up staff to more deeply engage with guests.
  • Give customers more control to customize their order to their exact preferences.
  • Keep your font-and-back of house in sync with menus that update instantly.

"Before Square Kiosk, we were using QR code ordering and wanted to reduce the time it took to place an order. People struggle to type 16-digit credit card numbers on their phones and prefer tap-to-pay; today, it's here with Square Kiosk. Our guests can modify multiple items and complete their checkout in under 60 seconds. We plan to add more Kiosks in 2024."  -Erik Göranson, CEO at Recess


Square Kiosk software includes: 

  • Images for menu items & modifiers 
  • Brand customization (logo, colors, and other controls)
  • Time-based menus
  • Control over whether diners are asked to select takeout vs. dine-in
  • Automatic marking of sold out items from the POS and KDS
  • Signup & accrual of points (when paired with Square Loyalty)
  • Mobile enrollment into rewards through iPhone Digital Wallet

Is this US only?


@LukeNieuw Correct, US only to start, with other countries to follow in the coming months!

Can't see it anywhere @emusumano but please tell me there are SMS updates for customers when they order on the kiosk?

Can you join from the UK?

@pigsnoseinn Its only the USA at this time. @emusumano has said that it would be open to other countries later this year hopefully


@Sam_400º correct, yes! SMS texts for order-placed receipts and order-ready status updates are included with any Square Kiosk subscription. To use this feature well, we recommend pairing Square Kiosk with Square KDS to easily view incoming orders and mark tickets as complete.

Id like to sign up for this beta, what do I need to do to enable my account? Any specifics on a release date for the beta?


"To use Square Kiosk, your account needs to be updated to the latest Categories experience. Your account currently is not eligible for the new Categories experience. We’re working quickly to make this available more widely, so you can start using Kiosk soon."
