A tender represents a discrete monetary exchange

Square represents this exchange as a money object with a specific currency and amount, where the amount is given in the smallest denomination of the given currency.

Square POS can accept more than one form of tender for a single payment (such as by splitting a bill between a credit card and a gift card). The tender field of the Payment object lists all forms of tender used for the payment.

Split tender payments behave slightly differently from single tender payments:

The receipturl for a split tender corresponds only to the first tender listed in the tender field. To get the receipt URLs for the remaining tenders, use the receipturl fields of the corresponding Tender objects.

A note on gift cards*: when a customer purchases a Square gift card from a merchant, the merchant receives the full amount of the gift card in the associated payment.

When that gift card is used as a tender, the balance of the gift card is reduced and the merchant receives no funds. A Tender object with a type of SQUARE_GIFT_CARD indicates a gift card was used for some or all of the associated payment.
