Sellers Worldwide Can Now Grow Their Business with Square Register

LONDON, UK November 20, 2014 — Today, Square introduced Square Register to the world. Square’s revolutionary point-of-sale software serves sellers a powerful suite of back office tools that track daily activity and provide insights into their business. The free app is built for Android and iOS devices and available through Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

Already utilized by millions of businesses in the United States, Square Register enables sellers anywhere to start, run, and grow their business at the counter or from their pocket. "Square Register offers us an interface that is both intuitive and simple, to register our sales without investing huge amounts on POS infrastructure and equipment,“ said Dennis Tang of Nylon Coffee Roasters in Singapore.

Square Register replaces the clunky, expensive cash register for sellers around the world. “The cash register was invented to solve the basic pain points of running a business, like recording sales,” said Square CEO Jack Dorsey. “Our Register empowers sellers to drill into their business with sophisticated reporting tools to run and grow their business.”

The worldwide app gives any business a complete, cloud-based point-of-sale solution to track sales and manage items and inventory. It also includes these additional features:

  • Dashboard provides valuable analytics for sellers to better understand their business and their customers and monitor daily activity in real time, from anywhere. 
  • Digital receipts enable sellers to connect with their customers and even respond directly to customer feedback to resolve issues and build customer loyalty. 
  • Hardware accessories easily connect to Square Register so businesses can access receipt and kitchen printers, cash drawers, and bar code scanners. 
  • Square App Marketplace offers sellers access to business apps that integrate directly with Register. Apps currently available for sellers worldwide include SumAll, IFTTT, and Stitch Labs.

Square Register is available worldwide in English, Spanish, French, and Japanese, and supports 130 internationally recognized currencies.
