Vend and Square launch their partnership for UK retailers

It’s great news for UK retailers! From today, they will be able to benefit from Vend and Square’s market-leading POS and payments integration. 

This collaboration, already used by stores across the US and Australia, allows retail businesses to benefit from Vend’s retail management features, while offering their customers a seamless payment experience with Square. It’s an ideal solution for UK retailers who have multiple stores or need to manage more complex operations and scale, but still want to provide a check-out experience shoppers will love.

“Two things are really key for UK retailers growing and succeeding in today’s retail environment – managing their business more easily and efficiently, while providing a beautiful customer experience. Our integration with Square allows them to do just that, which is why we’re so excited to be making it available for UK stores after a successful roll-out in the US and Australia,” says Marc Cooper, Country Manager, EMEA at Vend.

“Vend and Square is the easiest, fastest, and most hassle-free payments integration we’ve tried,” says Michael Nagdimunov of Grain & Vine. “The processing speed and ease of reconciling mean we’re spending more time helping our customers find the perfect bottle of wine. Plus, we’re saving at least $1000 a year. Switch! It’s a no-brainer.”

Square was founded in California in 2009 and launched into the UK in March 2017, to make it easy for businesses to take credit and debit card payments.

“Larger sellers using Square often have specialist requirements, but still want to integrate with Square’s easy-to-use payments technology and beautifully designed hardware. Vend is a great example of a point of sale solution that serves inventory-based retail really well. With this integration, their customers can now use Square to start accepting chip & PIN and contactless payments, and receive their money as soon as the next working day.”

This partnership, along with Square’s integration with hospitality POS system TouchBistro also launched today, brings the total number of Square’s UK partners to 16. It also adds Square to Vend’s extensive group of world-leading business app partners, alongside companies such as Xero, Shopify, and Apple.
