Square (SQ) Boosts Presence in Canada With Square Register

Square SQ continues to make strong efforts to bolster its global digital payment footprint.

This is evident from the company’s latest launch of Square Register in Canada.

Notably, Square Register is a point-of-sale system, comprising easy-to-use software options and built-in payments, which helps sellers in managing touch-free payments, online sales, employees, contactless pickup, and delivery.

Further, it enables omnichannel commerce within minutes and provides sellers with access to all sorts of tools required for business operations. Moreover, sellers do not need to keep any tablets or other devices, and apps.

Expanding Reach to Canada

We believe that the above-mentioned useful features are likely to aid Square in gaining strong momentum across sellers in Canada.

Already businesses like Village Ice Cream, Steel N Ink, Kensington Brewing Company, Les Petits Ziboo, and Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation’s McMahon Stadium have started using Square Register.

The move reflects the company’s focus on helping businesses by offering cashless payment options via Square Register amid the pandemic.

Hence, Square remains well-poised to capitalize on the growing proliferation of cashless payments in Canada.

A survey commissioned by Square indicates that 72% of respondents in Canada are in favor of cashless buying options.

Notably, intensifying fear of contracting COVID-19 along with the imposition of social-distancing and stay-at-home mandates across the world has triggered contactless transactions.

Strengthening Global Footprints

The launch of Square Register bodes well for the company’s growing efforts to bolster its global footprint.

Apart from the latest move, the introduction of its all-in-one specialized point-of-sale called Square for Restaurants in Canada remains noteworthy.

Square recently rolled out the Early Access Programme in France in a bid to expand its reach to French sellers. Under the program, the company strives to offer access to its integrated product portfolio to businesses, especially small and medium enterprises, in France.

Further, Square unveiled the same program in Ireland to aid them to grow both in-person and online. On the back of this, the company aims to help businesses of the country in saving time and costs.

Bitcoin, Like the Internet Itself, Could Change Everything

Blockchain and cryptocurrency has sparked one of the most exciting discussion topics of a generation. Some call it the “Internet of Money” and predict it could change the way money works forever. If true, it could do to banks what Netflix did to Blockbuster and Amazon did to Sears. Experts agree we’re still in the early stages of this technology, and as it grows, it will create several investing opportunities.

Zacks’ has just revealed 3 companies that can help investors capitalize on the explosive profit potential of Bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies with significantly less volatility than buying them directly.
