Square CEO Jack Dorsey announced that his payments company is expanding its hardware portfolio in Australia with a payments processing device Square Terminal.

Businesses of all types and sizes will be able to take sales and print receipts right from a custom-built hardware device that is designed to complement the aesthetics of any store interior.

“In 2016 we started helping the smallest Australian businesses accept card payments easily with our original Square card reader, and we didn’t stop there,” said Dorsey.

“We’re growing with our sellers, introducing new hardware that is still easy to access and quick to set up, but is also designed specifically to give bigger and more complex businesses better options when it comes to choosing a payments platform.”

Square says the new device is caters to the business owners that are looking to move away from legacy machines in favour of cloud-based software and design-focussed hardware.

“Businesses are ditching clunky payment machines and legacy technology because they want fast, secure and intuitive hardware that looks professional on their countertops,” said Square’s Head of Hardware, Jesse Dorogusker.

Built in-house, Square Terminal has a unique and simple design that also covers businesses for data security, dispute management and fraud prevention. Additionally, businesses will receive 24/7 phone support, a one-year warranty and the ability to try the device risk-free for 30 days.

The Square Terminal is available online at square.com or exclusively through Officeworks stores. The device retails for $439 (incl. GST) with one flat transaction rate of 1.6 per cent for all card types.
