This is Square Terminal. This is paying fair.

Square Terminal

Take payments. Get paid. No surprises.

The old way of taking payments is finally made new. Square Terminal is your all-in-one credit card machine for payments and receipts. It’s secure, reliable, and an entirely fairer way to get paid.

Accept the fastest and most secure ways to pay.

Take payments quickly and confidently knowing every sale is securely encrypted. Pay one flat rate for every tap, dip, or swipe: 2.6% + 10¢. Get your funds as fast as the next business day.

Tap

Move your line even faster by accepting Apple Pay, Google Pay, and other NFC payments. Customers simply hold their devices near Terminal to trigger payment.

Dip

Chip cards (or EMV) are the new standard in payment cards. Insert chip cards into Terminal and complete the sale in just two seconds—one of the fastest you’ll find.

Swipe

Accept magstripe-only cards just like you used to—swipe the card through the magnetic-stripe reader on the side of Terminal.

We make taking payments one less thing to worry about.

Spend less time and money on your payments. We don’t charge you extra fees or lock you into long-term contracts. And we’ve got your back when it comes to data security and managing payment disputes.

Honest, fair pricing with no gotcha fees

There are a lot of fees out there: statement fees, chargeback fees, PCI compliance fees—the list goes on. We don’t do any of that. And long-term contracts? None of those, too.

Data security protects you and your customers

Security is engineered into our products from the ground up. We follow industry requirements that keep data safe (instead of passing that responsibility on to you).

We manage payment disputes so you don’t have to

We constantly monitor for suspicious activity and block fraudulent transactions. When payment disputes occur, our team of experts deals with the bank for you, helping you avoid costly chargebacks.

You already know how to use it.

Get up and running in fewer than five minutes—no need to go through a bank. Square Terminal is an intuitively designed credit card machine so you, your team, and your customers can use it right away.

It won’t let you down. And neither will we.

Designed for reliability

Square Terminal is designed to withstand the busiest checkouts. It’s a credit card machine built top-to-bottom by Square so everything just works.
