Square unveiled the next generation of Square Stand, the company’s countertop device that turns an iPad into a powerful, robust point-of-sale system that sellers can use to run their entire business. Launching concurrently in all of Square’s eight global markets, Square Stand features integrated contactless and dip payments technology, a sleek, professional design, and a new checkout flow that provides businesses and their customers with a more intuitive, transparent and streamlined commerce experience.
The reimagined Square Stand offers businesses an affordable, comprehensive and easy-to-use device for conducting commerce. Square Stand combines Square’s point-of-sale software and hardware into one complete solution, enabling sellers to take in-person payments and manage ecommerce sales, deliveries, and buy online, pick-up in-store orders from a single place. Retaining the swivel design of its predecessor, the new Stand integrates Square’s lightning-fast contactless and chip card readers into the display, helping sellers simplify their countertops and keep their lines moving while eliminating the need for additional payments hardware.
The new Square Stand also transforms the buyer experience. New software for Square Stand creates a faster, more transparent checkout process that includes an order summary screen and illuminated payment icons on the face of the device to guide customer transactions and speed up purchases. These additions provide sellers and shoppers with the benefits of a customer display without the need for a second screen.
The new Square Stand is compatible with the iPad (2021, 2020, 2019), iPad Air (2019), and iPad Pro 10.5”.
