The box includes both the contactless reader and the swipe reader that plugs into the headphone jack The box includes both the contactless reader and the swipe reader that plugs into the headphone jack. Last I checked, Square ran debit cards as credit cards (swipe + signature, not PIN), but you can look at squareup.com for information like that. If all you need is the swipe reader, that's actually free from Square.
