Today, Griffin Technology and Square introduce Merchant case for iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, the first protective case optimized for a Square Reader.
Griffin's new Merchant case builds on Square's easy selling experience for mobile businesses everywhere. The introduction of the Merchant case launches Works with Square, a program that allows developers to build accessories for Square businesses.
Merchant Case + Square Reader
Square and hardware developer Griffin Technology partnered to design the Merchant case to enhance both performance and convenience for merchants selling on the go with Square.
The case is custom-molded to secure the Square Reader when connected. A groove in the bottom of the case aligns with the Square Reader to guide a credit card to an easy, consistent swipe time after time. Made from durable silicone, the case protects the phone from bumps and drops. The case's non-slip sides and corners make it easier to hold the phone and to hand over for customers' signatures. Additionally, the Square Reader can be detached and stored in the back of the case when not in use.
"Griffin is proud to be Square's inaugural partner in its Works with Square program," said J. Curtis, Director of B2B Product Development at Griffin. "Our Merchant case is the first protective case designed to augment and provide storage for the Square Reader. Paired together, our Merchant case and Square Reader create the ideal point of sale solution for all businesses on the go."
