Mobile payment company Square recently announced a new loyalty program that’s available to businesses. Under the loyalty program, companies are able to give virtual cards to shoppers using the Pay with Square app for iOS and Android.
Visits to each shop will earn a stamp on the shop card, giving rewards like discounts and free goods to consumers.
In addition to the loyalty program, the Pay with Square app was updated to make it easier for iOS users to search for businesses that use Square for payment processing.
The Square Register app for the iPad, designed for use by businesses, was also updated to add item categorization, customizable percent and dollar discounts, and new in-app reporting to track sales trends.
If you run a small business, you can download Square Register for free, though there is a fee for each transaction. If you’re a customer, downloading Pay with Square will allow you to use your phone to make payments anywhere Square is accepted.
