The new contactless and chip card reader is a wireless solution which connects with Square Stand or a mobile device while pairing with Square’s point-of-sale app. A customer can either insert their EMV chip-enabled card or hold their device near the reader to pay. The customer does not have to sign anything if they possess Touch ID, the iPhone fingerprint technology.
The new Square reader costs $49.
