It just got a lot easier to set your business up to access Apple Pay. ShopKeep has updated its iPad app to offer support for Apple Pay, and is offering new merchants who sign up for the service the new NFC-compatible hardware for free. Current ShopKeep users will need to purchase the iPad accessory for $259.

The new reader can take magnetic swipe, EMV chip cards, and NFC-based contactless payments like Apple Pay. Considering ShopKeep offers support for cash drawers, receipt printers, barcode scanners, and other accessories, this move makes the service a good choice for businesses looking for an all-in-one POS system.

It also puts ShopKeep out in front of its rival Square, which has announced plans to start accepting Apple Pay in 2015 but hasn't given any details about a timeline. You can watch ShopKeep's announcement video below.
