How POS integrations can streamline your business

How POS integrations can streamline your business

Square chief explains how the cloud point-of-sale system can become even more powerful when used with e-commerce, accounting, inventory and other online apps.

Integrations between cloud-based business applications is becoming increasingly common, and Square Point of Sale, for example, integrates with 14 other cloud applications.

Here Square Australia country manager Ben Pfisterer explains how several of those apps work with the cloud POS system to offer improved efficiency, customer service or visibility of your business.



Integration between BigCommerce and Square POS lets users connect their online and offline sales, giving them a view of everything they’re selling from one convenient dashboard, and synchronising inventory across their offline and online shop fronts to avoid selling something that is out of stock.


Sites built with Weebly can be synchronised with Square, allowing customers to pay through Square’s new online payment gateway and providing the business with a consolidated view of online and offline sales data in one convenient dashboard.


Intuit QuickBooks Online

Linking Square POS with QuickBooks Online means Square sales data is automatically imported every day, saving time and reducing the risk of errors. If you're not already taking advantage of this integration, up to 18 months of historic Square transactions can be imported.


Xero–Square POS integration synchronises transactions between both systems, reducing manual data entry to save time and reduce the risk of input errors that can have significant impacts on their business during tax season.


Stitch Labs

Stitch Labs provides online inventory control for multichannel retail business, automatically syncing inventory, orders and sales across every channel, including Square POS.

Employee scheduling


Integrating Square and Deputy gives business owners support in streamlining employee management, time tracking, communication and more. By managing attendance, task delegation and so, Deputy lets business owners focus more on their business and less on administration.

A complete list of integrations can be found at the Square App Marketplace.
