Australian retailers now have more choice in the way they run their business and sell to customers. Vend and Square’s POS partnership and payments integration, first launched in the US late 2016, is now available in Australia. This collaboration brings together two hi-tech retail systems and provides more options for advanced retailers, those with multiple locations, and complex operations.
Square’s payment system is popular with Australian small businesses because of the unique payments hardware it provides with options for contactless payments, chip card payments as well as Apple Pay and Android Pay, combined with fast deposits, and powerful analytics and reporting tools.
Matched with Vend’s point-of-sale solution, which provides sophisticated inventory and retail management for retailers all across Australia, advanced retailers can now run their business more easily and accurately with Vend, while giving shoppers a payment and check-out experience they love.
“Australian retailers are under increasing threat, especially with online competitors like Amazon launching into the market and putting more pressure on local stores. In order to compete, they need access to the world’s best tools. Vend helps retailers provide a better customer experience, with an advanced POS and powerful tools to manage inventory, customers, and their business. We launched our partnership with Square in the US last year, and are excited to bring it to Australia,” says Alex Fala, CEO of Vend.
“Vend is a great product for advanced retail and is a perfect fit with Square. Bringing our joint solution to Australia gives even more retailers access to integrated payments via Square Reader, in a seamless integration that is designed to help their businesses run and grow,” says Ben Pfisterer, Country Manager, Australia at Square.
