Now Accepting All Major Credit Cards!

February 23, 2011 at 9:54 am

I came across an ad today for a company called Square who offers a free product to allow merchants to swipe credit cards using their iPhone, iPad or Android device. The cost to the merchant is only 2.75% per swipe with no commitment or monthly/annual fees and the service accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.

Signing up was easy and free, and there is no charge to install the iPhone app. The little credit card reader will show up in the mail in about a week – meanwhile I can process credit card transactions manually at a slightly higher fee. I was able to link my Square account to my checking account so that payments or (gasp!) refunds will be tied straight to my account.

Oh, and don’t worry – you won’t see any kind of convenience fee from me for using plastic! That drives me crazy when they tack on an extra 50cents at the gas station. I consider that a cost of doing business and I’m just proud to be able to offer the option!
