May 20, 2015

Sellers Worldwide Can Now Grow Their Business with Square Point of Sale

Square has introduced Square Point of Sale to the world and for the first time, the product is available locally for entrepreneurs across Australia. Square’s revolutionary point-of-sale software serves sellers a powerful suite of back office tools that track daily activity and provide insights into their business. The free app is built for Android and iOS devices and available through Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

Square Point of Sale replaces the clunky, expensive cash register for sellers around the world.

The cash register was invented to solve the basic pain points of running a business, like recording sales,” said Square CEO Jack Dorsey. “Our Point of Sale empowers sellers to drill into their business with sophisticated reporting tools to run and grow their business.

The worldwide app gives any business a complete, cloud-based point-of-sale solution to track sales and manage items and inventory. It also includes these additional features:

  • Dashboard provides valuable analytics for sellers to better understand their business and their customers and monitor daily activity in real time, from anywhere.
  • Digital receipts enable sellers to connect with their customers and even respond directly to customer feedback to resolve issues and build customer loyalty.
  • Hardware accessories easily connect to Square Point of Sale so businesses can access receipt and kitchen printers, cash drawers, and barcode scanners.
  • Square App Marketplace offers sellers access to business apps that integrate directly with Point of Sale. Apps currently available for sellers worldwide include SumAll, IFTTT, and stitch_labs Labs.

Square Point of Sale is available worldwide in English, Spanish, French, and Japanese, and supports 130 internationally recognised currencies including AUD.

I’ve been using Square Point of Sale for about three years now,” says Michael Cheang, owner of Frisk, a bar located in Perth, AU. “We came across the app when searching the internet for point of sale solutions. We looked into all the alternative options, and ultimately chose Square for its simple layout. We love Register’s clear design, fast movement between screens and access to important info about my business online if I want it.
