Square arrives in Japan

Launching in Japan

Square has announced its availability in Japan, marking the mobile payment company’s first expansion outside of the North American market.

As a result, Japanese can now download the Square Register app for free and accept payments with a transaction rate of 3.25% per swipe. Alternatively, they can receive a free Square Reader.

“I am honored to introduce Square to a country with a rich history of design, innovation and tradition. Square shares the same values and attention to detail in our products. Our tools are made to enable business owners to create a delightful, seamless experience for their customers,” said Jack Dorsey, Square CEO and cofounder. “I look forward to Square assisting in Japan’s continued economic growth and entrepreneurship opportunities.”
