Square Unveils Apple Pay Reader

Square recently unveiled what it is calling its most powerful card reader yet: a wireless reader that enables any business with a tablet or smartphone to accept Apple Pay and contactless payments, as well as EMV chip cards.
The new Square Reader comes ready out of the box, connects with Square Stand or wirelessly with a mobile device, and pairs seamlessly with Square’s free point-of-sale app. Local sellers — from brick-and-mortar shops to mobile businesses— can use the lightweight, compact, and wireless reader as part of their countertop point of sale, or slip it in their pocket to accept contactless and EMV payments on the go.
Square offered 250,000 of these readers free as part of its continued commitment to give local businesses access to the smartest technology through secure and simple hardware. The new reader is also available for pre-order in the U.S. for $49 (with a $49 card processing credit).
Square will begin shipping the reader in fall 2015.
