Square introduced a new, thinner mobile payment reader this month. Mine arrived today. It’s a more sleek design but retains the same look Square’s known for.
Square is a mobile payment company founded in 2010 by Jack Dorsey and Jim McKelvey. Dorsey is also co-founder at social network and microblogging platform Twitter.
Square Register allows merchants to accept credit and debit card payments on iOS and Android mobile devices. The Square Wallet app enables users to pay for merchandise, sans card, at Square-equipped merchants.
In 2012, Starbucks partnered with Square to bring the service to more than 7,000 Starbucks locations nationwide.
