Square, and our integrated apps, can completely transform the way your business makes sales. Square Point of Sale is the free app that gives you everything you need to power your checkout and run your business. When used with the stand, it allows you to accept credit cards, cash, cheques and gift cards — and take payments without a Wi-Fi connection in Offline Mode. You can also print or send receipts via email or text message and print or email sales reports. In addition to elevating your level of customer experience, Point of Sale also enables you to manage inventory in real time; adjust taxes, tipping and discounts; and create employee logins.
Sell faster and sell more with Square Stand — it’s just a few clicks away in the new online Square Shop.
Ian Baird, owner of Terre Bleu lavender farm, an apiary and horse stable in Ontario, tried numerous other point-of-sale systems but he was put off by the time-consuming and fiddly set-up. “You can literally take the stand out of the box and, with almost no instruction, set up the platform ready for sales in minutes,” says Ian. “Snap a picture of a product on your phone, drop it into the register template, add a few price details and — boom — you’re ready to sell. It really is that simple.” Ian says the user interface was so intuitive that his staff only took a couple of minutes to train. Ian’s customers have also had lots of positive feedback. “They love when we spin the POS around and they sign with their finger. They always say, ‘Wow that’s cool.’”
Square Stand includes stylish, secure and easy-to-use features, such as:
- It’s designed to move. The stand easily spins around to let customers sign and tip right on the iPad.
- The USB hub allows you to plug in any point-of-sale hardware you need, such as a receipt printer, cash drawer or bar code scanner.
- The integrated card reader lets you swipe cards securely and accurately, so you can process Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express at 2.65% per swipe.
- An included security kit lets you lock the iPad in place and secure Square Stand to your counter.
- Square encrypts card information at the moment the card is swiped and never stores data on the iPad after a payment has been processed, so your customers can also feel secure about the process.
- It is compatible with iPad (5th generation, 2017), iPad Pro 9.7”, iPad Air 2 and iPad Air.
Square Stand is now available on our new online Square Shop, where you can buy a range of hardware to suit your needs.
