SQUARE READER TERMINALS
Please note that SQUARE readers do not operate the same way that standard bank issued EFTPOS machines do. Given that, we are not able to 'lock down' these terminals. The whole point of the WLT program is that we can lock down terminals in a certain area, so that the money stays local. Given the increase in usage of SQUARE this is something that WLT has been investigating for some time with our card issuer. Although we are hopeful that a solution will be found to include SQUARE readers in our network, at this time this is not possible.
However, there is a way that you can still be involved in the WLT network if you operate with a SQUARE reader. If someone was to come into your business with a WLT Gift Card then you can just take the card physically off the customer as payment. You would need to take the entire value of the card, and then you would have to go spend that card in one of the participating stores.
It is the responsibility of the business accepting the gift card as payment to ensure that there are sufficient funds remaining on the card to cover the purchase. We recommend that the card holder and the business owner check the card balance together immediately before payment is finalised. By completing this form, the registering business accepts full responsibility for ensuring the balance on the card is sufficient to cover payment. Balances can be checked HERE.
We understand that this is not the ideal process, but that is what some other businesses that have SQUARE are currently doing.
