Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:GMBL) and its ggCircuit business have joined forces with world-leading point of sale and payment processing provider Square to create ggLeap, a premium esports center management software. 

Esports said the software will allow players to pay on-screen with a credit card through a QR code, adding that ggLeap is the first esports management software to offer such a feature.

"We couldn't be more thrilled to be partnering with Square to bring this ggLeap product to launch," said Magnus Leppäniemi, president of esports at Esports, in a statement.

"Players will now have the ability to purchase digital items, physical products and gaming hours directly from their computers with Apple Pay, Google Pay and more," Leppäniemi added. 

Esports said ggLeap's first version is supported in the US, Australia, Canada, Japan, the UK, and the Republic of Ireland. More locations will be announced as the company and Square are able to integrate additional third-party payment processors.

Aside from buying PC time, users can browse through inventory items synced from the web administrator through Square. Regular inventory items and prizes will be exported and available through ggLeap and transactions completed in Square. Consumers can also use Square and their PCs to buy food items while gaming.

The complete integration of ggLeap is expected to take place in September.
