The Reader SDK on iOS supports using Square Stand for swiping payments and connecting a Contactless and Chip Reader using USB. Square Stand support is limited to accepting payments.

To use Square Stand with your application, add the following key-value pairs to your Info.plist file. The Reader SDK automatically detects if a Square Stand is connected and use it to accept swiped credit card payments.



Before you can submit an application using Square Stand to the Apple App Store, Square must notify Apple that your application is authorized to work with Square Stand. This process might take several weeks to complete. Contact us for assistance.
