WHO IS SQUARE?
In 2009, entrepreneurs Jack Dorsey and Jim McKelvey created Square, Inc., fulfilling their dream of creating technology capable of aggregating merchant services and mobile payments into a single, easy-to-use service. Less than a decade later, Square was downloaded over 33.5 million times by small businesses that use it to accept credit card payments, track sales and inventory, and obtain financing.
No one should be left out of the economy because the cost is too great or the technology too complex.
So Square built easy tools to empower and enrich people. Tools that shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it—because we believe in fair and square.
They started with a little white card reader but haven’t stopped there. Our new reader helps our sellers accept contactless and chip cards and our Point of Sale lets sellers keep track of their inventory, employees and their customers, so they can make smarter decisions.
We’re empowering the electrician to send invoices, helping the clothing boutique see what’s selling best, and providing the coffee chain with customisable gift cards. We’re here to help sellers of all sizes start, run, and grow their business—because helping them grow their business is good business for everyone.
