Square Contactless + Chip Reader

Square Contactless + Chip Reader enables businesses to accept chip cards and payments such as Apple Pay, Android Pay and more. It connects wirelessly to the seller's device of choice and with Square Stand; and pairs seamlessly with Square’s free point-of-sale app. All customers have to do is hold their device near the reader or insert their chip card to pay. The whole transaction just takes seconds to complete. With biometrics like Apple's Touch ID, a signature is no longer required. The new reader is optimized for authenticated payments, pairing with the original Square reader for magstripe-only card payments.
