Convenience: Where ever you are, you are prepared to accept or make a sale. Square is about the size of a quarter, making the square reader completely portable. No need to carry additional luggage to fashion shows or exhibits.
Fees: Square’s fee is 2.75% per swipe and 3.5% +.15 cents for manually entered transactions (Square accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and AmEx). Quite refreshing to know you’re not going to lose an arm and leg to fees. There are no monthly fees and best of all your funds are available for a next day deposit.
No Swipe Limits: There isn’t a limit of how many payments you choose to accept. Why worry about a pesky threshold or additional fees. Your focus should be on your art, design, and selling the customer, not on whether your reached your swipe quota.
Operating Platforms: Square works on both Android and Apple devices. Seems petty, but believe it or not there are card readers that do not function on the Android Operating System.
Free: It will cost you zilch to request a Square Reader and that includes shipping and handling. Seriously, what are you waiting for? Don’t regret that lost opportunity of a sale in the coffee shop!
