Square, the popular mobile payment service now works with Chromebooks too.
According to a blog post from Square, users can now use Chrome browser running on Chrome OS to process payments using Square.
You can take payments on an Apple computer running Google Chrome or Apple Safari browsers, or on a Chromebook running a Google Chrome browser. Setup takes just a few minutes. If you already have Square Reader for magstripe, plug the reader into your computer’s audio jack, open up Virtual Terminal, follow the onscreen prompts, and start swiping cards to take payments from your computer right away.
If you are using Square’s card reader, you should be able to connect it to your Chromebook’s 3.5 mm audio jack and swipe cards.
If you are a small business trying to set up Square based Point Of Sale (POS), Chromebooks and Chrome OS tablets are now a good option to consider.
