Square has changed the way so many merchants do business.
According to a Mashable article from 2013, there are over three million users and 250,000 merchants and presumably the time that has passed since the article was written has led to even higher numbers.
WP eCommerce is a popular WordPress plugin with over 40,000 active installs, but prior to today, folks who were using Square couldn’t accept payments through their WP eCommerce-powered store.
Now, we’re changing the game.
At the request of our audience, we’re introducing a new product:
- Accept every payment, everywhere
The new Square Reader lets you dip EMV chip cards and accept NFC payments like Apple Pay. You can also swipe magnetic-stripe cards with the included magstripe reader.
- Fast deposits, clear pricing
Pay 2.65% per swipe for Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express. See deposits in your bank account in one to two business days.
With the Square extensions you can accept payments on your WP eCommerce powered store from your customers.
This is only the initial release! More will be added in future updates, including features like inventory, product sync between Square and WP eCommerce, and more.
Download it, give it a try, and let us know what you think!
Square eCommerce payments is only available in the U.S, Canada and Australia
