It was recently reported that Square had partnered with Starbucks in an effort to streamline transactions at their coffee shops and expose the product to more users. Now, Square has also struck a deal with AT&T. Card readers will now be available in more than 1,000 AT&T retail stores nationwide.
The device will be available for $9.99 and should provide small business owners and entrepreneurs the tools they need to prepare a growing business for technological advances in this field. Square has created lists of Square-friendly businesses around the county in order to help users make the most of the service—a feature which may help smaller companies grow their customer base. At this point Square has over 2 million people and businesses using their service. The number is expected to grow significantly in the future.
