Payments provider Square has launched its Square Terminal, an all-in-one device that makes credit and debit card processing fair and accessible to more businesses across the UK.   

Retailers looking to accept card payments have typically faced a range of challenges, including  credit checks, monthly fees and long-term contracts. Square addresses these hurdles head on  with the new Square Terminal, which offers business owners an out-of-the-box solution to start  accepting all major cards right away, with no contracts and no hidden fees.   

The device is aimed at all types of businesses, from restaurants to nail salons, that want to deliver  a seamless payment experience for their customers and their employees. Square Terminal lets  sellers manage their point-of-sale (POS), accept every form of payment and print receipts directly  from one elegant, modern and affordable device.   

“Many UK businesses today are using outdated keypad card terminals that come with unfair fees  and long-term contracts,” says Jesse Dorogusker, head of hardware at Square. “Designed to feel  familiar but new, Square Terminal offers a modern solution with dynamic software, so businesses  can do more than just take payments. Square Terminal is for sellers, often larger, who need a  portable, all-in-one payment terminal that staff can use for point of sale, taking payments and  receipts.”    

Reha Arslan, business development manager for Yamabahce, Alan Yau’s new Turkish concept  restaurant adds: “Our staff are constantly on the move and with Square Terminal they can now  take orders, accept contactless and Chip and PIN payments, and then print and send digital  receipts – all tableside. Other payment devices haven’t evolved, whilst Square Terminal is simple  to set up, reliable and just works, which is perfect for a cashless restaurant like Yamabahce.”   

Designed in-house, Square Terminal allows sellers to deliver professional and seamless services  while never having to worry about missing a sale. Unlike existing terminals, Square Terminal is  built on modern software and handles all updates automatically so features can be added as  seller needs evolve.   

“I switched from another payments provider to Square because its point of sale was more  intuitive and next business day deposits enable me to run my business,” says Sam Corban, owner  of 400º Pizzeria, a pizza pop-up. “Now with Square Terminal I track sales, take payments and  print receipts with one device which is ideal for a business on the move. Plus the payment  transaction fees are flat so with Square I can trust that there will be no surprises.”   

With simple pricing, no hidden fees and 24/7 expert phone support, Square Terminal is for all  types of sellers whether they are just getting started or expanding. It is available to purchase  online today for one upfront price of £199 ex. VAT. To help smaller sellers, Square is offering  zero-interest payment plans so businesses have the opportunity to pay for Square Terminal in  monthly instalments.
