I now have a Square! Too fun, and very simple. I’ve been talking about the fact that I was going to think about getting either the Square or the Paypal device to take credit cards on my phone for probably a year.
Had done some research – some folk said the Square was easier, others that Paypal was. Everyone said the Square was cheaper, with a fixed rate, than Paypal, whose rate changed with the size of the credit card payment.
Then I bought skin care products from a fitness studio last Saturday – and the owner put my card through a Square. And emailed me the receipt from her phone.
I was wandering around on the web later that same day, considering making a decision. When the Square offer came, saying it would provide the device for free, I hit a button, which led to just 3 or 4 more buttons – and it was done. The Square itself – cute little thing – arrived in the mail on Thursday. I put it through its paces and it worked – so simple.
This 21st century is such a simple and easy place to be isn’t it? Wonder why I thought so long…. : >
