Square Terminal

The smart payment terminal to help run any business.

Take payments. Get paid. No surprises.

The old way of taking payments is finally made new. Square Terminal is your all-in-one credit and debit machine for payments and receipts. It’s secure, reliable and an entirely fairer way to get paid.

Accept every debit and credit payment.

Let your customers pay with any type of payment method, including debit tap and chip and PIN. Get your funds as fast as the next business day.

Tap and go

Contactless debit and credit cards, Apple Pay and Google Pay – accept them all in seconds.

Insert the chip

Insert chip cards into the payment terminal and let customers securely enter their PIN on screen.

Swipe the stripe

Swipe cards and accept international cards without a chip.

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 monthly fees

There are a lot of fees out there: statement fees, charge-back fees, PCI compliance fees – the list goes on. We don’t do 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 charge-backs.
