Square Announces iPad-Based ‘Business in a Box’ POS System

Posted by at 6:02 pm on February 21, 2013

Square has announced the Business in a Box, a new hardware option for retailers. The system includes a cash drawer, a Square card reader, and a WindFall iPad stand, meant to hold an iPad running the Square Register app.

Square’s goal is to have the combination be able to handle all major POS tasks, including creating custom inventories and running analytics.

However right now there is one major pieces missing – hardcopy receipts. By default, receipts must be emailed to customers; adding a receipt printer costs another $300.

For all transactions Square charges businesses a 2.75 percent rate per swipe, or alternately a flat $275 fee per month.
