Create Units and Modifiers in the Seller Dashboard Beta release
This is pre-release documentation for an API in public beta and is subject to change.

Measurement units and item modifiers that exist in an external system must also exist in Square so that the two systems can be mapped using the Square Bridge Integration Wizard.

Important

Before using the Square Bridge Integration Wizard to map entities across systems, you must create any needed modifiers and units in the Square Seller Dashboard.
