Take payments. Get paid. No surprises.
Square Terminal is your all-in-one credit and EFTPOS machine for payments and receipts. It’s secure, reliable and an entirely fairer way to get paid.
Accept the fastest and most secure ways to pay.
Take payments quickly and confidently knowing every sale is securely encrypted. Pay the same simple rate for every tap or insert: 1.6%. Get your funds as fast as the next day, or instantly for a small fee.
Let customers tap their contactless debit and credit cards and complete the sale in seconds.
Use the payment terminal to accept smartphones and watches with Apple Pay and Google Pay.
Insert chip cards into the credit card machine and, if needed, let customers enter their PIN on Terminal.
We make taking payments one less thing to worry about.
Spend less time and money on your payments. We don’t charge you extra fees or lock you into long-term contracts. And we’ve got your back when it comes to data security and managing payment disputes.
Honest, fair pricing with no gotcha fees
There are a lot of fees out there: statement fees, chargeback fees, PCI compliance fees—the list goes on. We don’t charge for any of that. And long-term contracts? None of those, either.
Data security protects you and your customers
Security is engineered into our products from the ground up. We follow industry requirements that keep data safe (instead of passing that responsibility on to you).
We manage payment disputes so you don’t have to
We constantly monitor for suspicious activity and block fraudulent transactions. When payment disputes occur, our team of experts deals with the bank for you, helping you avoid costly chargebacks.
