The app has a wealth of features for most face-to-face merchants, e.g. product library, tipping, taxes, employee accounts and a customer library. On top of this, you get invoice tools, a virtual terminal for over-the-phone payments and ecommerce options.
Alternatively, you can subscribe to Square’s specialised POS systems for retail, hospitality or appointments scheduling.
There is also a mobile card machine called Square Terminal, which only works through a secured WiFi connection. It doesn’t need a connected mobile device and has a touchscreen display with almost the same features as Square Reader’s POS app, hard-coded on the terminal.
Card transactions cost 1.6% on Square Terminal, but you buy it for $329 incl. GST.
