It’s hip to be Square
Last year I got an intuit card swipe that connects via 3.5 mm jack to my iPhone for my CCFA SF funding raising. It was a bit of a hassle. It directed all payments to a credit card they send you; after fees and energy wasted I stopped using it. I don’t believe people have time to redirect funds from a credit card to a bank account.
Signing up is easy and the square card reader is free. I decided to sign up under the “Team Nincompoops Take Steps Walk” so that those who donate get an email receipt with that exact title. After signing up and entering my banking information within 7 days I had my new square.
It came in cool but compact box but no portable case which would make the product last longer. After downloading the iPhone App I plugged in the Square. Whoa! Awesome! The user dashboard is easy and neat; lets not make charging complicated.A true geek I had to test it out immediately and made a donation to Team Nincompoops. I received an email confirmation and within a couple hours the funds were received in my bank account. The other feature is having a map of where this transaction happened.
Square is a compatible with any apple devices running iOS 5.0 and Android devices running Android 2.2 and up.
I suggest any small business owner to look into the Square. Great product.
