Square rolls out integrated solutions to boost Irish businesses
By Megha Bhattacharya
Square has announced its launch in Ireland, enabling all merchants and enterprises to access its ecosystem with the tools they need to start, run, grow, and adapt their businesses. The FinTech’s suite of products are designed to work with each other to save businesses time and money, reduce inefficiencies from managing multiple systems, and help sellers grow their businesses in the future.
Additionally, Square offers merchant-friendly pricing for business software and payment processing without requiring long-term contracts or extra fees. It takes care of fraud prevention, dispute management, security, and compliance at no additional cost. Businesses can access their funds as soon as the next working day and only pay a transaction fee when they accept a card or mobile payment.
“At Square, our growth is directly tied to our customers’ growth – we all succeed together,” said Alyssa Henry, Executive Vice President, Square. “We are thrilled to expand Square’s solutions into Ireland, helping merchants to run their entire business end-to-end with integrated software, hardware, and data analytics while making it easier for them to take card payments.”
According to Square, Irish businesses can sell online, in-person or both with its integrated suite of products for point of sale, restaurants and Square Terminal, Stand, and Reader. Square Online, its fully integrated e-commerce platform that automatically syncs inventory and orders with any Square Point of Sale makes it seamless for any business to expand through omnichannel selling.
“Independent businesses are the backbone of Ireland’s economy, and deserve the same tools and resources as big enterprises,” said Jason Lalor, Executive Director for Square Europe. “Irish businesses can trust Square to be a fair, transparent, and innovative partner they can rely on to help them run their business in times of uncertainty, and beyond.”
Damien English TD, Minister for Business, Employment and Retail, in welcoming the launch of Square in Ireland, said, “I know that a long-term goal for many in retail prior to the pandemic was to scale up online offerings to complement their physical stores. This goal has been accelerated due to the pandemic and many have now adopted new digital transformative models to ensure the strong relationships they have built with their customers can continue into the future. I want to see the retail sector develop and become one of our most innovative and resilient sectors in Ireland. It is the largest private sector employer in the country, and supports jobs in every city, town and village.”
