Debit Is Here

Interac + Square Reader for Contactless and Chip

If you weren’t already aware, debit tap is here! Start accepting debit now with our new Square Reader for contactless and chip.

With the new Square Reader ($59), you can also accept chip credit cards and mobile payments like Apple Pay and Android Pay.

Some things to know:

  • You can only accept debit transactions under $100 at this time, and INTERAC cards can’t be inserted. For transactions over $100, ask your customer to use a credit card or alternate method of payment.

  • To tap credit card payments over $100, your customer may have to provide extra authentication—like a signature or thumbprint.

  • Your customer may also have to provide extra authentication for inserted credit cards. The method of verification will depend on the card so be sure to follow the on-screen prompts.
