Accept any way to pay
The Square card reader is built from the ground up to allow small businesses to take any kind of payment wherever they vend their wares. It accepts chip and pin payments from credit and debit cards as well as contactless payments from both types of card and mobile devices. It accepts Visa, MasterCard and American Express as well as contactless options such as Apple and Android pay. It can also accept swipe cards using the included magnetic strip reader, which is ideal for international cards. This means that when you take your stock on the road, you’ll never have to turn away a customer who doesn’t have cash.
With the free Square Point-of-Sale app, payments can be taken when a cardholder is not present, so funds can be accepted remotely using your web browser. You can even send an invoice directly to a customer who is not present and track the progress for free. A 2.5% charge will be charged for these transactions.
Efficient on the road
Ideal for markets, festivals and pop-up shops, the Square Card Reader is easy to take with you wherever your business needs it. It has a powerful battery that can last up to 500 transactions, with clear LED indicators informing you how much power it has remaining. It charges via a USB cable that can connect with any computer, car charger or USB mains adapter. You can also charge the reader via the Square Card Reader Dock (sold separately), which not only keeps your card reader powered up but also gives it a handy platform for seamless transactions.
The reader works in conjunction with the free Square Point of Sale app to give you all the tools you need to manage your transactions efficiently. You process your payments through your smartphone, complete with a function that records your cash transactions too. You can keep a complete, customised list of all your products. You can apply discounts, issue refused and both send and track invoices. You can send receipts via email or text messages, or even connect to a receipt printer for hard copies, to keep records of all your sales.
Accepted payment methods and costs
For super fast fund transfers and a wealth of features, the Square Reader charges 1.75% for transactions with a cardholder present and 2.5% for keyed-in, invoice, online and virtual terminal payments.
