The payments company founded by Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, Square stepping towards the UK as the company announced the launch of Square Stand turning an iPad into a point of sale system.
Square’s new product will be sold alongside existing products that the company offers in the U.K. The new product lets vendors process card payments, track sales, and manage inventory. Square Stand launched in the United States in 2013 where the stand has suffered several improvements and iterations.
Square’s hardware lead and designer of the Stand, Jesse Dorogusker said, “Square Stand was built to provide sellers with a unique and beautiful solution that makes taking in-person payments simple, elegant and fast.” Further, he added, “Sellers in the U.K. have been asking for a full countertop solution for their businesses since we first introduced Square.”
The company has picked up a lot of loyalty to its services and innovations even it is smaller than other competitors, however, it doesn’t break out numbers by geography or product. Square has taken a very deliberate route when it’s come to grow outside its home country. Square currently operated in the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan and now in the U.K.
Square’s spokesperson said, “Nothing to share on that front.” Further, the person added, “We are just getting started here in the U.K. and iterating fast to bring new services to market. Since we entered the U.K. market in 2017 we have continued to bring our U.K. sellers important products at a steady pace.”
