Griffin and Square combine on an Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5 case for merchants
Credit card processor Square and case manufacturer Griffin have combined on a new case for the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5. Named the Merchant Case + Square Reader, the case integrates with the Square card reader allowing merchants to swipe credit cards and ring up sales, while protecting their iPhone. When you're done using the Square reader, it can be detached from the case and stored in the back of the accessory.

The case itself is made from non-slip silicone, and can be ordered from Griffin's site, which you can access by clicking on the sourcelink below. The price is $19.99 and you should expect it to take 1 to 2 weeks to ship.

One of the cashiers at sears tried to swipe my card using that contraption and I took the card away and went to another cashier. How secure is this stuff anyone?

Probably just as secure as the other POS. Just look at Target.

Not sure why you would do that. One could argue it's just as secure as a normal register and a cashier. How secure is your card when you hand it over to a waiter/waitress and they walk away with it for 5 minutes?
