    Credit card processing company Square has updated its Register app with a number of new features to make it easier to use in restaurants, as well as speeding up checkout in other types of retail businesses.

    For the iPad edition, restaurants can attach a customer's name to their order, as well as customize orders with modifiers like "no pickles" -- and the app also has gained the ability to connect to Bluetooth barcode scanners for retail outlets.

    Square can be used by a variety of businesses to take credit card payments on the go or at fixed locations.

    Square Register is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

    How about updating the service to work in other countries? I don't know how long they've been "looking into" it for, but it's been a bloody long time.

    I can only imagine how much work and effort it would take to get this thing working overseas. Especially when you're dealing with banks.

    Why does it sound like you're upset as if you were entitled to this service? The logistics are most likely different in other countries, and they much rather mature the brand and service before going world-wide.

    From what I heard, while it's available both in US and Canada, the accounts won't work in the other country - even that much would be useful, especially to people that sell stuff at conventions. So if someone lives in the US, and has a US Square account, they either don't take CCs while a con/fair/show in Canada or they have to work out a second Square account.

    Even just making it so one account works in both places/all place square is would be great.

    No a sense of entitlement at all. Just amused that a company with so much clout and funding behind it has yet to do what they've supposedly been trying to do for well over a year. If it was important to them, they'd have sorted it out.

    Anyway, we have iZettle in the UK, which gives you a option of a BT chip and pin device as opposed to some headphone socket swipe device thingy. I think there's a bit more consumer confidence with chip and pin over here currently.

    I just want to be able to delete an erroneous cash transaction. Twice I've hit the cash option instead of the manual credit card entry and you can't remove the freakin' transaction. It drives me batty.
