Square adds support for Apple Pay with new contactless reader

Square is now rolling out a new version of its card reader, one that accepts NFC payments and EMV chip cards alike. This allows small businesses to start accepting contactless payment services like Apple Pay, along with chip cards, which have recently been rolling out in the United States.

To get the ball rolling on this new reader, Square has partnered with 100 small business across the U.S., while other business owners can reserve their reader from Square now. It cost $49, and comes with a free Square stripe reader right in the box. The new reader easily connects to Square's existing app, as well as the Square Stand hub.
