New partnership allows contactless + chip card payment
aois21 is happy to announce our new partnership with Square as our point of sale provider for aois21 events, book fairs, and festivals. Not only will aois21 now use the square plugin to swipe credit cards, we also have a Square Reader to accept contactless pay systems like Apple Pay and Android Pay and chip cards!
This new partnership came forward thanks to a special offering from American Express. Square replaces PayPal, which has allowed aois21 to conduct credit card sales over the past three years, but couldn't process the more advanced payment options. The aois21 market, although originally powered by PayPal, will continue to be run by Stripe, through our partnership with SquareSpace.
