Payments company Square makes Ireland its first eurozone launch

Square, the payments company led by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, launched its services in Ireland on Tuesday in its first eurozone foray.

The San Francisco-based Square said businesses of all sizes would be able to start using its credit card reader to process payments on mobile devices, as well as the company’s other products including invoice management software.

Square is well known in the United States for helping small merchants and self-employed professionals complete credit card transactions without a cash register or expensive software.

The launch comes more than four years after Square made Britain its foothold in Europe where it faces stiff competition from well-established companies such as U.K.’s SumUp and Zettle, which is owned by PayPal.
