Allow square payments to be processed on the second screen app for iOS
When checking a customer out via the web app have the second screen app open square and allow the customer to swipe in the same way as Repairshopr lite. This would finally give square users a terminal like experience we have wanted with a customer facing device. We can throw the ipad in a square stand or other locking stand facing the customer and have a professional looking full solution for display+signatures+card

PLEASE MAKE WORLD PAY WORK WITH DEBIT AND CREDIT IN CANADA, OR ADD THE ACTUAL SQUARE TERMINAL SUPPORT ... WE ARE SUFFERING USING THE MOBILE APP WITH SQUARE IN STORE IN CANADA... WE NEED A TERMINAL OR PIN PAD THAT YOU HIT A BUTTON AND IT PASSES TO THE MACHINE SEAMLESSLY WITHOUT ADDITIONAL STEPS...
THAT OR MAKE THE SQUARE WORK ON THE SECOND POS SCREEN SO IT FLOWS AUTOMATICALLY. PLS PLS PLS.

I 100% whole heartedly agree as Square is the only integration in Canada, World Pay won't allow us to have a debit machine in Canada... so we have to enter cards manually or open the Square app on the iPad. We want seamless flow from hitting Credit card/debit in Repairshopr to a debit machine that shows the amount owing! That or make the second screen compatible for the customer to enter their pin and link to the square reader. That would be A LOT more convenient than pulling up the invoice on a second iPAD and sending it to sqaure manually... it's way too many extra steps!

I agree!!! Square payment from the second screen is required especially for Canadian users or integrate Square with the pin pad. The second screen only shows the PC or ipad from the browser and it's not seamless integration from the Ipad app to the second screen!!! I would be happy if the second screen worked with android also - android is not working period for square.
So currently I need to write up my bill on the PC and then pull it up on the ipad to get payment??? A$$ backwards if you ask me... we need a seamless Canadian integration from the PC or IPAD to the second screen. Maybe look up Clover and using econduit to integrate with Canadian processors (First data)
This would be awesome and is critically needed in Canada as we have no real options for taking chip cards (which everyone in Canada uses) and working mobilely. WorldPay is not supported in Canada and Authorize.net can't do either of these mandatory things!!
YES THIS^^^ i have been scrathing my head over this for MONTHS wondering why this hasn't been done. i understand the limits from the website to the square app, but i use the second screen app, this would solve my final hurdle to streamlining.
Ryan...you have perfectly articulated one of the issues in our store! Please implement Repairshopr team! :-)

Functionally the flow would be something like this: When we pull up the invoice via RS Website the second screen displays the line items/total. 2 options here, we could trigger the square app by clicking take payment on the website, OR there could be a button on the second screen app to trigger square app with text something like "Pay with Card". Either way the total should be pulled from the invoice and pre populated in the square app so all the customer has to do is swipe/dip/nfc, if successful the invoice is marked paid and autoprintr prints the receipt. Voila! Did i mention card present rates???
