Mobile payments business Square has started offering a new “Business in a Box” package that gives a store all the hardware it needs to run Square Register and get a point-of-sale system starting at $300, the company announced today.
Business in a Box will complement the other solutions Square is offering to disrupt traditional payment methods. For example, you can plug a Square reader into your smartphone or iPad and take payments from anywhere. Its Square Register app for the iPad helps you take and track payments in-store. Consumers have Square Wallet to help them pay without even taking their phones out of their pockets.
The base Business in a Box package includes two Square Readers, an iPad stand, a cash drawer, and an optional receipt printer. All of the devices work wirelessly with the Square Register application. Business in a Box packages start at $300 and they are customizable depending on a company’s needs.
San Francisco-based Square has raised more than $341 million in funding to date. Investors include Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Sequoia Capital, Citi Ventures, Rizvi Traverse Management, CrunchFund, and Starbucks.
