squarePayments solutions provider Square today announced an Early Access Programme in Ireland in a bid to offer exclusive access to an integrated suite of tools to seamlessly sell in-person and online. Square’s offerings enable sellers to set up online shops, take card payments in person, access earnings faster, manage inventory or a busy kitchen, and much more.

“Since starting with Square we have been able to unlock big improvements for our business, from e-commerce to payments,” said Chris Arnold, owner of Lennox Street Grocer, one of the first businesses to beta test Square in Ireland. “In addition to their fair, transparent pricing, we’ve been really impressed with the ability to have fractional quantities in our point of sale, and the increased transaction speed for tap payments – both make it easier for our buyers to check out both in-store and online, so we never miss a sale. Using the lockdown to switch to Square was a smart choice as we look to the future and post-pandemic growth.”

Square stated that merchants who enroll in the Early Access Programme can get started with its products in just days, with no long-term contracts or start-up fees, and qualify for free Square hardware. Square expects to launch its products for general availability in Ireland later in 2021.

“We’re excited to bring Square’s remarkable solutions to Irish businesses,” said Jason Lalor, executive director for Square Europe. “We look forward to partnering with Ireland’s rich community of independent business owners to refine and perfect our products in advance of launch, ensuring that they offer the time and cost savings that will enable Irish businesses to grow and prosper both in-person and online.”

Recently, the FinTech announced the launch of its latest hardware offering – Square Register. The solution offers an integrated countertop point-of-sale (POS) solution for UK businesses to manage their operations. The end-to-end solution includes a detachable customer-facing display with a built-in card payment terminal. A 2m cable is also available for sellers who wish to put even more distance between them and their customers.
