We’re pretty excited about unboxing our new NFC reader from Square!
This is Square’s first foray into the contactless payment world, and as usual, it’s beautifully executed with the great UX elements. From the small details like including a sticker with Apple Pay and Android Pay featured on it, to also an extra original Square reader so you can still accept non-chipped credit and debit cards, it’s been a pleasure to use.
The setup process took about 2 minutes total, including downloading some updates to the Square Register app (in our case, it was installed on a Galaxy Note 5). You have to charge the reader via the included USB cord, which only took a few minutes.
