Ironically, Canadian-based unicorn, Shopify, just launched their Tap and Chip Reader to compete with Square today.

@rrhoover It's a reader, Square is a full blown POS system for restaurants. Different product.
@mr_pixelr yup! I wasn't implying that they're the same thing, but pointing to Shopify's movement into Square's space (no pun intended).
@rrhoover That would be a great 'pun'! You're right, there is a lot of overlap as far as card payments, and it appears both companies are heading towards the same final destination - Omni channel selling products. Will be interesting to see both products evolve.
It's going to be tough for Toast and others to compete with Square's offering.
Big moves from @Jack tackling Opentable.
@msitver doesn't seem like this supports reservations management
Is it available worlwide or only in the US? Asking from South America, Ecuador.
@chinozc Square seems to be available in many countries, I believe it's any country where they have a tax arrangement. But the default Square app can be used for all types of shops, not just restaurants. Main advantage is that its half the price of PayPal's transaction fees and they give you the EPOS till software for free!
Would love it if Square would handle credit card transactions like Europe for the restaurants. Bring me the device so I can Apple Pay or at least keep positive control on my card.
