As always, our next generation reader enables you to accept secure payments easily, whether you’re on the go or working at a counter. Payments are safe and secure thanks to 24/7 fraud prevention, end-to-end encryption, and payment-dispute management.


The new, improved Square Reader for contactless and chip (2nd generation) features several physical upgrades including a USB-C charging port and a larger power button, but we’re most excited about new “under the hood” features that deliver an improved product experience! These include upgraded connectivity (BLE 5.3) with improved reliability and device pairing, enhanced security,  and a battery life that allows you to take 20% more transactions on a single charge than our first generation reader so you never miss a sale.  

Square Reader for contactless and chip (2nd generation) is compatible with Square Point of Sale as well as all of our industry-specific software solutions. There are a wide range of compatible accessories available including the new Bosstab Dock for Square Reader which elevates your reader and holds it in place on the counter for easy, seamless payments.


The new Square Reader is available now for $59 on Square Shop and at select retailers.
