Square Terminal Overview
Square’s Take On The Classic Credit Card Terminal
Launched in October 2018, the Square Terminal (squareup.com/us/en/hardware/terminal) is a point-of-sale product from Square that is intended to replicate the function of conventional EMV credit card terminals. Square Terminal is designed for merchants who want to use Square for their face-to-face credit card processing but do not wish to pay for the company’s more expensive point-of-sale options like Square Register.
