The Square Reader for contactless and chip is an elegantly simple way to start accepting EMV payments. It can handle both mobile payments and payments in your store. It’s a wireless reader with a battery that’s built to last for a whole day of processing.
You can connect this reader to any device with bluetooth connectivity and the Square app. That means it can connect to your smartphone, tablet, or computer. So, as long as you have one of those, you won’t have to buy any other kind of hardware to start processing.
The reader accepts a ton of different payment types in a small package:
- EMV chip
- Apple Pay
- Google Pay
- Samsung Pay
- Magnetic-stripe (with included magstripe reader)
Did we mention that every single Square contactless reader you buy comes with a free magstripe reader? That way you can take an old-fashioned swipe payment should your customers not have a credit card with chip or tap functionalities.
Finally, we should mention that when you get a Square reader, you’re also hooking your business up with one of our favorite credit card processors. Square was designed with small business in mind. Its services are streamlined and scalable. You can start with a simple reader and expand to a deep and intuitive point-of-sale experience.
These features and benefits combine to make Square a great place to start for most small businesses.
