Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey has this week launched his payment company, ‘Square’ in Ireland
Square is based in San Francisco and is designed to make the process of accepting payments through credit card much easier, in the US Square has already built a reputation for helping smaller businesses accept payments without the need for expensive software or a physical cash register.
The Irish launch will be a first come first serve basis, as this is an early access programme not everyone that wants to test Square will be able to do so yet.
An executive for Square has said:
One of our core principles is that everyone should have easy and fair access to financial services – we don’t feel anyone should be left out because barriers are too high, cost is too great or the technology is too complex and we have found that legacy systems can often penalise small businesses.
Square can process payments on mobile devices with iOS 12 and above and also from Android version 5. Other products on offer are Square’s top of the line invoice management software.
