An example of time and cost savings (data based on real Square businesses)

Our seller owns an online retail business, and plans to open 6 brick and mortar stores this year, which will account for 30% of their sales. Annual sales are $20M, average sale is $114.

By switching to Square they save more than $40,000. Plus, as they open more stores this year, they’ll be able to easily acquire and deploy hardware and POS software at lower costs than with other options.


Your case may vary, we’ll be happy to help figure out what your savings would be.

Set up hardware quickly, easily, and affordably.
