Square refreshes card readerSquare founder Jack Dorsey said the company will add support for Apple Pay at Square-based terminals at some point in 2015.

Square makes a dongle that attaches to smartphones and tablets, as well as a tablet-based register device, in order to help small businesses use modern tools to expand their customer base.

“We’re not building a credit card,” said Dorsey to CNN. “We’re not building a payment device. We’re building a [cash] register, and this register accepts all these forms of payments.”

Apple Pay is accepted at about 220,000 retail locations around the U.S., and just this week became available at Winn-Dixie and Harveys grocery stores. Apple Pay lets iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners make tap-and-go payments at compatible terminals.
