Square Stand Turns Your iPad into a Payment Station

| Cool Stuff Found

Square's new stand does more than simply hold your iPad: Thanks to its built-in credit card reader the Square Stand turns your iPad into a complete payment station without the look of a clunky cash register or bland card reader. It works with Square's Register app so that's customizable for what you sell, and it works with the Square cash drawer, receipt printer and barcode scanner to make a complete POS terminal that looks sleek on your shop counter. Square Stand is priced at US$299 and should be on store shelves in July, but you can pre-oder from the company now.

I’ve seen several stores in my area using iPads as touch pad point of sale devices, but with stands that didn’t seem secure. Apparently this Square stand can be secured to the counter, but swivels for customer finger signature, and can be connected to receipt printer, cash drawer and barcode scanner.  Seems pretty slick, and if it can track sales (and inventory) too, as it appears, could be a great solution for small businesses, etc.
