Square indicated in September that Square Register would eventually support Apple Pay, which officially launched last month.
Founder Jack Dorsey reaffirmed Square’s support for the product in a CNN interview. Here’s a snippet from the article:
Apple Pay and Square have generally been viewed as competitors in the mobile payment space, but Dorsey doesn’t see it that way.
“We’re not building a credit card. We’re not building a payment device. We’re building a [cash] register, and this register accepts all these forms of payments,” Dorsey told CNN in an interview.
The company will start accepting Apple Pay sometime next year.
This week, Square also launched Square Register in more countries. It’s now available worldwide in English, Spanish, French, and Japanese, and supports 130 internationally recognized currencies.
