Square plans to sell a “Business in a Box” package that includes two Square Readers, an iPad stand, a cash drawer, and an optional receipt printer, it announced Wednesday. The items will all work together to allow business owners to accept credit card purchases, furthering the company’s mission of simplifying payments. “Square Register serves as the full point-of-sale system for businesses to accept payments, track sales, and share item and location information,” the company wrote in the press release. “Historically, business owners were forced to piece together multiple hardware components from various manufacturers, manage complicated contracts and pricing structures, and pay for expensive software licensing and service plans. Now, they can be up and running with Square Register in minutes.”
