Re: Will the Square Register be available in Canada? If so, any idea when?

Hi @CGC134!

 

Unfortunately there's not a timeline I can give on when it'll be available in Canada. 

 

You can keep up to date on the Square Canada by subscribing to our Product Updates board and by following Square on social media (Twitter/Facebook) as new hardware is typically announced there.

Hi @DCMuseum, the Register is not available in Canada yet, but I will let the team know about your interest!

I wonder, back in 2017 you guys already said will let your team know about our interest. It is 2020 and still the same reply to Canada's customer. 

 

The most attractive feature of the Square Register would probably be the customer-facing display. 

 

Other than the Square Register, I suggest to produce an individual unit (via bluetooth, wifi or USB) to connect to the hub/tablet, so the customer can see what's in their order and the total.  It will help a lot.

 

Also, the HUB is limited to 3 USB devices, which should have a 5 or 6 USB options to extend the wider usage in other devices. (e.g. Charging option for the touchless pad).  

 

Hope you guys really listen and take some action. Have a nice day!

Do we have an availability date for:

 

Square Register - Need a customer-facing screen, as turning the Square stand has mangled the cords and now we keep having to buy a new cord package for each Register - we now have 3!

 

Square Restaurant - Need to build tables so that servers can choose a table and seat at that table - or assign a name of a person, then enter their phone number to see if they are an existing client or not - and if not, create a new customer record - all for COVID tracing logs that are required by the government.

 

We are in desperate need for both!!!

 

Please advise. Thanks!

Thanks for the info Joe. I'm still confused why, after over three years, that Register and Restaurant are not available in Canada. Super-frustrating. We are constantly having to look to 3rd party solution apps, to do directly in Square what used in the US and the UK are already doing... 😞

Hi, I am also interested in the Square Register. A separate customer facing display with an integrated pinpad is definitely the best solution. Please also make it compatible with Star Micronics MPOP cash drawer-receipt printer. That'd be great.

Just looked at the new Square Register (USA) and it does look like it is a great system. Would love the opportunity to help test/verify in Canada!

Would the new system work in Canada if setup here?  Really would like to have it in Canada (client facing part is key)

Hey @hunter423 - Unfortunately, the Square Register will not work within Canada. It will give a location error if it is outside of the US that cannot be bypassed. We'll definitely make sure to announce if it does become available within Canada though!

Hi there! Is there any upcoming update regarding the possibility to one day have square register option in canada? Or at very least a system where people can pay debit card with a **bleep**...?

 

We love square but these limitation really start to hitch.

 

We might start thinking of switching for another provider if this square thing doesnt evolve. The POS software is great, the payment material? it really is another thing. Please step up your game square!

Thanks for checking in. The Square Register isn't available in Canada yet but when it is we'll update everyone in this post to let you all know.

 

I'm sorry that there are current payment limitations in Canada, I know it's frustrating. We definitely want you to be able to accept more payment methods, not fewer, but I don't have an update to share at this time. If anything changes on that front we'll post here to share the news.
