Square works at the counter.

  • Accept all major credit cards (chip card, mobile payments, mag-stripe card) and Interac.

Sell it all with Square hardware.

Accept payments fast from anywhere. Square has hardware solutions that let you ring up items quickly in your store and on the go.

“Our customers are surprised they can have the same quick and easy payment experience at our shops as they do at larger retailers. Being able to accept contactless cards, including debit, and mobile payments shows our customers we are a forward-thinking business.”

ANET GESUALDI, AG MACARONS
