Square's Loyalty Program

You might not know this, but Square has a loyalty program that's specifically designed for coffee shops. And what's great about it is that it works with the tools you already use.

Here's how it works: customers can earn rewards points for every purchase they make, and they can redeem those points for discounts on future purchases. And what's even better is that you can customize the program to fit your business. For example, you can choose to give more points for larger purchases, or you can give points for referrals. You can even set up a VIP program for your best customers.

The best part about Square's loyalty program is that it's designed to help stores sell in-store and online seamlessly. So if you have a brick-and-mortar store and an online store, you can use the same loyalty program for both. That way, your customers can earn and redeem points no matter how they shop.

Square is Great for Online Ordering

With Square Online, you can easily create a website, list your products, and start taking orders - all without a subscription fee. You'll only pay the transaction fee for orders placed on your website, or for any optional upgrades and services.

Plus, with Square Online you can fulfill your orders electronically, which means you can save time and money on shipping costs. And if you need any help getting started, Square's customer support team is always available to lend a hand.

Square's Hardware Design is Top Notch

What's more, Square offers a wide range of hardware options to choose from, so you can find the perfect setup for your coffee shop. Whether you need a simple cash drawer and receipt printer or a more sophisticated setup with a barcode scanner and iPad stand, Square has you covered.

And if you ever need help with your hardware, Square's customer support is top-notch. They're always quick to respond and they'll do whatever they can to help you troubleshoot any issues you're having.

Training Staff on Square is a Cinch

Since the Square POS app is so easy to use, you won't need to spend a lot of time training new baristas on how to use it. And that's a good thing, because it means you can get them up and running behind the counter more quickly. Plus, since there's no commitment and no monthly fee, you can cancel at any time if you decide it's not the right fit for your coffee shop.
