Square Stand, new hardware created by Square for brick-and-mortar businesses that turns an iPad into a complete point of sale, is now available, according to a company press release. With local businesses increasingly tearing out their old POS systems to run Square Register, Square Stand gives merchants a remarkable new way to manage and grow their business, all for the price of a cash register, said Jack Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of Square.

"Local business owners take as a given that they need an ugly, slow, expensive, and complicated point of sale system cluttering their counter," he said. "Square Stand is elegant, fast, affordable, and easy to use. Whether you're selling cupcakes, cardigans, or cappuccinos, running your business with Square has never been easier."

Ready to use in minutes, Square Stand works with Square Register, the free point-of-sale application, and gives merchants access to real-time analytics and robust reporting. Square Stand features an integrated card reader that keeps information secure from swipe to payment, and easily connects to the hardware accessories businesses need, including a receipt printer, kitchen printer, cash drawer and barcode scanner. Merchants can lock their iPad in place and secure the stand to their countertop, making it easy to tilt and rotate the stand and complete orders quickly. Square Stand works with an iPad 2 or 3, with a version for iPads with Lightning connectors available later this year, according to the release.

Square Stand costs $299 and is available for pre-order today at squareup.com/stand. Customers will also be able to purchase it in Best Buy stores and other select retailers starting the week of July 8.
