The package may make it easier for companies to begin taking payments, according to Square. Whereas in the past, merchants would have to acquire materials from many different sources, Business in a Box supplies them with everything they need to enter the world of mobile credit card processing.
The lower-priced package, at $299, includes two Square readers, an iPad stand and a cash drawer, while a set for $599 comes with a receipt printer as well, GigaOm reported.
Additionally, Bloomberg suggested that the company’s latest hardware options make handling cash simpler for merchants. Despite many vendors going mobile, paper currency continues to be an important part of doing business.
“Cash is not dead – people need a cash drawer to run their business,” Jesse Dorogusker, vice president at Square, told Bloomberg. “We weren’t going that full step and saying here’s everything you need, it’s in a box, click, pay, it shows up on your doorstep.”
According to Square, the company hit $10 billion in mobile credit card processing transactions in 2012.Back To Blog
