I know there are TONS of iPhone cases out there, but few are special built for just one thing.  This Griffin Merchant Case is one of them.  So simple, but solves a problem for mobile merchants.

After their announcement at the 2014 CES, Griffin Technology’’s Merchant Case + Square Reader is now shipping. The Merchant case is the first protective solution optimized for the new Square Reader.

“We’re extremely excited about the enthusiastic response to the Merchant case. Our case, combined with a Square Reader, is a perfect solution for business on-the-go,” said J. Curtis, Director of B2B Product Development at Griffin.

I use square all the time and I was exited to see this announcement. When I upgrade to the iPhone 5S in February, I plan on ordering one of these.

The Merchant case is molded to keep the Square Reader in place and eliminate strain on the iPhone’s headphone jack. A cutout along the bottom aligns with the Square Reader and allows credit cards to slide through easily and consistently. The case protects the phone from bumps and drops and it’s made of non-slip material which makes it easy to hand over to customers for signatures. When the square reader is not in use, it can be stored on the back of the case in it’s own little spot.
