Square Point of Sale Update: Welcome to Signature Free Checkout!
Square Point of Sale Update: Welcome to Signature Free Checkout!

We are so excited to offer you a new way to speed up checkout at your business.


With the Square Point of Sale app you now have the option to no longer collect signatures on card payments.

Checkout will now be as simple as having your customer pay with their card, add a tip and then receive their receipt. No signature screen will be presented, and there is no need for them to sign.


Why did this change?

You may have heard that credit card brands are no longer requiring signatures for transactions. This is made possible by improved security/authorization solutions in the credit card processing world, such as chip-enabled cards and EMV card readers.


Since these requirements have changed, we wanted to make the Square checkout experience even faster — and still just as secure — for you and your customers.


How does this work?

Want to stop collecting signatures for payments? You now have two options. You can either never collect signatures or collect signatures only for payments over $25. If you would like to continue collecting signatures for all of your payments, you always have that option too.


To adjust your signature settings in the Square Point of Sale app on your device:

  1. Tap the following icon in the navigation bar:
  2. Tap Settings > Signature & Receipt.
  3. Select whether you’d like to Never Collect Signatures or Always Collect Signatures, or only Collect Signature Over $25.

If you ever want to change your signature preferences on your device, simply return to Settings in the app and select which option works best for you.


You can read more about how to disable signatures for Square app payments on our Support Center and if you are curious in learning more about Signature Free Checkout in general, see our recent blog post.
