Square Register Stand: 3 Exciting Updates
Hey small business owners! We launched our Square Register Stand last week, and thanks to you guys, it was an instant hit. We’ve been working hard on fulfilling your orders and listening to all of your feedback. It seems that many of you have questions about our upcoming features, which we’re going to answer here in as much detail as we can.
Our three exciting updates:
- Tilting feature for customer interaction
- Free logo etching. Seriously.
- Super sleek, 100% acrylic version
1. Tilting feature
Once you (the seller) swipes the customer’s credit card, you’ll then need to turn the screen over to them to sign their name. To do this, we’re incorporating a swivel in the post so you can quickly flip the screen to face the customer. The iPad display would re-orient itself quickly to be right side up.
Why is tilting the iPad better than swiveling the base?
Tilting the iPad is a simpler and more elegant solution. Unlike a swiveling base, the motion is swifter, and you actually get a hard stop. We’re building it to be robust enough to go back and forth hundreds of times, and we’re also putting in a cushion so it lands well on both sides.
How much will this cost?
Because the Square app requires the customer to sign a credit card transaction, it will soon come standard on all of our register stands. Putting in a tilting frame is extra work, so we’ll need to raise the price $25 to cover for the extra labor. If you don’t need the feature, now’s a good time to get one.
When is this feature coming out?
Mid to late May. It’s available now!
2. Free logo etching
We were originally charging extra for laser etching, but now we’re throwing it in. Why? Because know the challenges of starting a small business. Branding is important (and often expensive), and there’s no better place to put it than at the point of sale.
The Tinkering Monkey logo won’t even show to the customer – it’s hidden behind the iPad, just so you have a reminder that it came from our little workshop :)
3. 100% Acrylic version
The 100% glossy acrylic version is coming out soon, and it’s seriously going to rock. Because they’re acrylic, they’re going to cost more, they are going to be sleek! You’re going to love them.
The acrylic version will come standard in black and white, but we like doing custom work, so for an extra fee, we’re going to offer it in a rainbow of colors.
Let’s Keep in Touch
