Square Teams Up with Point-of-Sale Systems Vend and TouchBistro

Today, we’re announcing integrations that give sellers using Vend and TouchBistro in the UK the ability to process payments with Square. These merchants can now access the same affordable hardware, next-business-day transfers and business tools Square sellers use to run and grow their businesses.

Square and Vend

Larger businesses, specifically inventory-based retailers and full-service restaurants, have advanced point-of-sale needs and have built their businesses using Vend and TouchBistro. By integrating with Square, these merchants can continue to use the tools they love while taking advantage of all of the payment services Square can offer.

Whether it’s accepting contactless, chip and PIN and mobile payments, getting their money in their bank account as soon as the next business day or using analytics to view sales trends and enhance their business performance, Square can help businesses run the way they want.


Vend helps advanced and multi-store retailers manage and grow their business, on iPad, Mac or PC, with its powerful point-of-sale, inventory and customer management, and reporting. It’s perfect for inventory-based retailers, and makes it easy to manage stock and sales in real-time across multiple stores and online. Vend helps retailers avoid double-sells, easily track their products and profitability, and get out from behind the counter to reduce queues and provide a more personal customer experience. Retailers can also integrate Vend with other world-leading business apps and tools, to better manage and grow their business.


TouchBistro is the easy, smart and complete iPad point-of-sale solution that has been designed specifically to meet the unique needs of food and beverage venues. Their software provides restaurants of all sizes with an affordable, flexible and powerful point-of-sale solution built for food-service business owners, managers and servers. Integrate with Square Reader to accept payments whether you’re at the bar, counter or table.

Sarah Harvey, UK Lead at Square, said:

Larger sellers using Square - like full-service restaurants and retailers - often have specialist requirements, but still want to integrate with Square’s easy-to-use payments technology and beautifully designed hardware.

Vend and TouchBistro are two great examples of Point of Sale solutions that serve specific industries well. With this integration, their customers can now use Square to start accepting chip & PIN and contactless payments, and receive their money as soon as the next business day.

Merchants using either Vend or TouchBistro can start taking payments with Square right away.

Square Reader is available online and in Apple Stores across the UK.
