Square announces early access programme for businesses in Ireland
Square, the payments software and hardware company, has just announced an Early Access Programme in Ireland which will be offering access to an integrated suite of tools to help Irish businesses to sell in-person and online. This limited-space programme is now seeking SMEs across Ireland who want access Square’s hardware and software solutions to help move their business into one that offers a better commerce and ecommerce experience.
“Since starting with Square we have been able to unlock big improvements for our business, from e-commerce to payments” said Chris Arnold, owner of Lennox Street Grocer, one of the first businesses to beta test Square in Ireland.
“…We’ve been really impressed with the ability to have fractional quantities in our point of sale, and the increased transaction speed for tap payments – both make it easier for our buyers to check out both in-store and online, so we never miss a sale. Using the lockdown to switch to Square was a smart choice as we look to the future and post-pandemic growth.”
This marks the first time Square is available to Irish merchants and will allow new businesses to take card payments in person, access earnings faster and manage inventory.
“We’re excited to bring Square’s remarkable solutions to Irish businesses,” said Jason Lalor, executive director for Square Europe.
“We look forward to partnering with Ireland’s rich community of independent business owners to refine and perfect our products in advance of launch, ensuring that they offer the time and cost savings that will enable Irish businesses to grow and prosper both in-person and online.”
Space in Square’s Early Access Programme is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Interested businesses across Ireland can visit squareup.com/IrelandEAP to learn more.
Square expects to launch its products for general availability in Ireland later in 2021.
