Last month San Francisco’s Square announced that it was coming to Canada. Square enables anyone, anywhere to accept credit cards to run their business.
Square’s free Mobile Card Reader plugs into the headphone jack of an iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Square Register is the free app that enables anyone to safely and securely accept credit card payments with a transaction rate of 2.75% per swipe. Funds from swiped payments are available the next business day, eliminating the wait for cash flow.
Currently over three million individuals and businesses can already accept credit cards with Square and they’re processing over $10 billion in annualized payments.
Today Square announced that its Mobile Card Reader is now available in retail stores in Canada, including Apple, Best Buy, and Futureshop locations. Small business owners can pick up a Card Reader at their neighborhood retail location, along with other tools they need to run and grow their business.
