Introducing Square’s Virtual Terminal: Accept Payments on Your Computer

While smartphones and tablets continue to be vital business tools, we heard from our sellers that many of them also rely on computers for much of their back-office operations because it allows them to access key desktop features that might not be optimized for iOS and Android.

Today, we’re introducing a new payment solution, Virtual Terminal. Virtual Terminal can turn your computer into a cloud POS and give sellers the ability to accept payments from their computer through Square Dashboard. Sellers from all different industries like accountants, contractors, charities, and health and beauty professionals can now see and run their entire business on a computer, their main day-to-day tool for running their business.

Get Started with Virtual Terminal

Easily accept card-not-present payments.

Business owners no longer need a separate device to key in transactions — with Virtual Terminal, sellers can accept payments with Square on their computer in seconds, and current Square sellers have the option to access their money instantly with instant transfer.

Shane How, founder and CEO of Innovo Media Group, a business-to-business marketing firm in Orange County, California, uses Virtual Terminal to bill his clients for website creation and marketing campaigns. “I started using Square because of Virtual Terminal. It makes processing payments with Square easier and more efficient, and the ability to track all of our funds from our clients in one place is great.”
