One of the things that used to be difficult for small businesses was accessing payment system. Typically, you were locked in with your bank and slugged with the cost of a payment terminal that you then needed to integrate with your point of sale system. That’s changed as a result of new mobile-enabled payment systems and the new API economy while allows all sorts of systems to access payments and other systems. Square is leveraging all this as they launch a one-stop shop offering a suite of third-party point-of-sale (POS) hardware and accessories.
