Square’s Reader for chip cards is now available for pre-order

Square’s Reader for chip cards is now available for pre-order

Square has opened pre-orders for the next version of its credit card reader. The new device, an update on Square’s existing model that could take payment on mobile devices if a customer swiped their card, adds support for EMV credit cards as their use increases across the US. The new reader takes both older magnetic stripe and more modern chip cards, works with iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, and is “small enough to fit in a pocket.”
