Credit cards. I’ve been thinking on this for a little while now. I’ve been wanting a way to take credit card payments from couples without the hassle of huge fees, clunky credit card machines etc, etc… It just seemed like such a hassle that it became one of the those things that I just sort of put on the back burner and thought I would get to it one day, never really paying to much attention to it.
But the day has come my friends.
Square is hassle free and a cost effective way to take credit card payments (and it looks sorta stylish too). One of the founders of Twitter is also a founder of Square so I knew it was going to be pretty awesome, seen as my love for twitter has no bounds.
It is as simple as downloading the FREE ap from the apple application center. Then you sign up for FREE at their website (www.squareup.com), and they send you a small Square card reader in the mail for FREE! You link the ap with your bank account and payments go directly there. And the only cost to me is a minimal (in the region of 3% processing fee). Bing, bang, bong… As simple as that.
So… I am happy to say…
I KNOW TAKE CREDIT CARDS!
I accept, Visa, Mastercard, Amex and Discover.
And here is the little thing that makes it all possible…
Here’s the ap on my iphone.
And here is a handy tutorial on how simple it all is!
