    Hey guys,
    Are there any iPhone Square Reader alternatives for UK? It would be a great help to me if there was.

    That sucks. I wonder why Square hasn't continued to roll out their system.

    I would imagine it has something to do with Chip and Pin and the merchant rules around using signature as an authentication method.

    Probably because it's an unreliable heap of dog poo.
    The actual reader that is.

    This is it.

    There was an article about a Chip and PIN compliant card reader for the iPhone a few weeks ago, but I'm not 100% sure if it will get released.
