Square Stand Goes on Sale at Apple and Best Buy Stores

Square Stand, the payments company’s pretty and pricey iPad stand for business owners, is available at Apple and Best Buy retail stores starting today, the company announced. The $299 sleek, white device includes a credit-card reader but not much else. Still, as AllThingsD’s Mike Isaac wrote in May, “You could slap a $500 iPad on a $300 stand and perhaps buy one or two of the ticket-printing peripherals to go with it, and be set up for under $1,000.” The point-of-sale hardware can also be purchased on Square’s website.
