Ready to use in minutes, Square Stand works with Square Register, the free point of sale application, and gives merchants access to real-time analytics, robust reporting, and a delightful experience for their customers. Square Stand features an integrated card reader that keeps information secure from swipe to payment, and easily connects to the hardware accessories businesses need, including a receipt printer, kitchen printer, cash drawer, and barcode scanner. Merchants can lock their iPad in place and secure the stand to their countertop, making it easy to tilt and rotate the stand and complete orders quickly. Square Stand works with an iPad 2 or 3, with a version for iPads with Lightning connectors available later this year.

Notably, while Square usage continues to grow on smartphones, the company says usage is growing at a faster rate on iPads with iPad customers now representing nearly 50% of total payments processed by Square. The average payment volume processed by these customers is more than double the average volume processed by Square customers using smartphones.

Square Stand costs $299 and is available for pre-order today at squareup.com/stand. Customers will also be able to purchase Square Stand in Best Buy stores and other select retailers starting the week of July 8.

What about chip and pin ? Card swipes are really old school and not over secure ? In the USA I was very rarely asked to prove I even owned the card !!!

Good as a knife holder, maybe. You guys have no idea of how badly Square sucks. Terrible company, impossible to deal with outside super-duper narrow parameters. Worst customer service I've even seen. Gave birth to mutant hyenas. You get my point.
