Square, the digital payments company founded by Jack Dorsey which officially became available to Irish retailers last year, has announced that the Square ‘Register’, their point of sale (POS) solution, is now available for Irish businesses.

The new device is a countertop POS system with embedded software that includes delivery and order management along with Square’s own secure payment technology. The system also runs Square’s vertical POS software, Square for Retail and Square for Restaurants.

It also includes a detachable customer facing display which also houses a card payment terminal along with the option to pick up a 2 metre cable to allow more options for placement in-store.

Ru Whelan of Happy Out Café in Bull Island and Donnybrook, who have also been trialing the device said: “The speed of which the new system can process orders really helps us deliver a much more efficient and streamlined service for both our customers and employees.”
