Square Announces Official Launch in Spain After Successful Early Access Programme


Square, the company specialising in software, payments, and hardware solutions for businesses of all sizes, announces its arrival in Spain following a successful Early Access Programme. Starting today, Spanish entrepreneurs, freelancers and business owners will be able to use Square's ecosystem of tools; the only end-to-end solution of its kind in the country.

"We’ve been trialing Square’s suite of products both in-store and online and we love it,” said Miguel Gil, owner of Hop Hop Hurrah, one of the first businesses to use Square’s products in Spain. “Having a point-of-sale system with integrated payments and omnichannel solutions has transformed the way we’re able to run our business, making it an easy and seamless process. We’re pleased we were able to switch to Square and feel much more confident in our ability to grow, ensuring we never miss a sale, as we look towards the future.”

Square is part of Block, Inc. a global technology company focused on financial services, founded in 2009 and headquartered in San Francisco. Square is currently present in nine countries, with Spain being the fourth European country and the first launched in 2022, after landing in Ireland and France last year and the UK in 2017. Square seeks to help entrepreneurs in a country where SMEs account for 99% of businesses, so that they can easily sell their products and services, both in physical shops and online, as their needs evolve. Square will also be rolling out support in Catalan over the coming months.

“We are thrilled to expand Square’s solutions into Spain, helping merchants to run their entire business end-to-end with integrated software, hardware and data analytics, while making it easy for them to take card payments,” said Alyssa Henry, Head of Square. “Spanish businesses of all types and sizes will now be able to use our integrated ecosystem of products and services to grow, adapt, and run their businesses.”

Xiana Méndez, Secretary of State for Trade commented: “For a quick economic recovery, SMEs and fintech industry must go hand in hand. SMEs must evolve at the same speed as the market and thanks to fintech they can do so in an easy, swift and convenient way. The technology provided by these technological financial firms guarantees them innovative solutions in terms of payment management that can be decisive in supporting their growth. In Spain, Square will find a very thriving market!”
