Sydney, 8 March 2016: Square today announced that it would be selling its point of sale solution in Australia, its 4th market after the USA, Canada and Japan.

Cuscal has been assisting Square every step of the way on its Australian journey and Cuscal Managing Director, Craig Kennedy, said of the news:

“We’re very pleased for Ben and the team at Square and delighted that the Square Reader is now on sale in Australia. It will make it possible for anyone in Australia to accept card payments by turning their smart phone into a POS device. We think thousands of new Australian merchants will start accepting non-cash payments who previously thought it was too expensive or too difficult. At Cuscal we’ve always supported offering Australians increased choice in the way they pay for things – it increases competition, keeps prices down and levels the playing field.”

Speaking about the partnership with Cuscal, Ben Pfisterer, Australian Country Manager, Square said:

“Square is excited to work with the team at Cuscal, who demonstrate the same commitment to innovation and small business that Square does. Our entry to Australia is strengthened by our partnership with Cuscal which is a world class end-to-end payments leader with over 40 years’ experience in the local market.”
