Last November, Square released the NFC-friendly reader which is a square pad device that allows you to wave your phone or insert a card in order to purchase something. It supports payments like Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay and other micro-chip enabled credit/debit cards such as American Express ExpressPay, MasterCard PayPass and Visa payWave. But this device was only available on Square’s website for $49…. Until last Wednesday when Square announced that you can now purchase this from Apple Retail Stores and online for the same price.
The reader is compatible with NFC-equipped smartphones with a data plan in place. Apple devices should have an iOS of 9.1 and above and for Android, 4.4 or higher.
This is definitely a good purchase for those who own a business because this will provide your customers more ways to complete their purchase.
