The NFC-equipped Reader from Square the company launched back in November of 2015 is finally available to buy from Apple stores.
Square has officially announced that its newest Reader, which utilizes NFC to accept payments from Apple Pay, Android Pay, and other mobile payments options is now available to buy from Apple’s physical retail stores, or through the Apple Online Store, for $49. The new Reader is equipped to support the aforementioned mobile payment options, but also Chip-and-PIN debit and credit cards from American Express ExpressPay, Visa’s payWave, and MasterCard PayPass.
Apple Pay is already accepted at over 1 million locations in the United States, and quickly expanding to even more around the globe. With this support from Square, more small businesses will be able to accept Apple Pay as well, so the numbers will continue to grow.
