Member Spotlight: Square, Community payments

As many businesses can attest, access to payment rails that allow one to pivot to online sales has been essential in surviving the economic pressures presented by Covid-19. Consumers are using less cash, and businesses are resorting more and more to moving online. NAB has noted that there has been an 800% increase in the number of merchant facilities opened compared with April of last year. The Reserve Bank of Australia has noted in a March report that cash-based consumer payments have dropped to 27%, down from 69% in 2007. Cash withdrawals have also been impacted, dropping 32% in April compared to February. This has opened opportunities for digital marketplaces and businesses, products such as cryptocurrency, and the potential for digital cash (which we covered in a previous Member Spotlight), and payment providers. Square has been one such payment provider that is pivoting to help its customers as they adapt to a new way of working.
