Simple & Inexpensive Credit Card Processing

Months ago I heard about a device that allows you to process credit cards through your cell phone on Good Morning America.  Recently, a friend was raving about it and I must say, I'm excited!  Meet Square!


About Square
Square is a revolutionary service that enables anyone to accept credit cards anywhere. Square offers an easy to use, free credit card reader that plugs into an  iPhone, iPad, or Android phone. It's simple to sign up. There is no extra equipment, complicated contracts, monthly fees or merchant account required.

Processing fees:

2.75% for swiped transactions
3.5% + 15¢ for keyed-in transactions
That's it! There are no activation, gateway, monthly, early termination, hidden fees or any additional costs to use Square. Every credit or debit card we accept (Visa, Mastercard, Amex and Discover) have the same flat rate. These fees are static and do not change depending on how much the transaction was for. As our fees are taken out of each transaction as they occur, there is no fee schedule. Square also does not require a contract upon sign up and since we only charge per transaction, it doesn't cost you anything if you don't use it!

Additional Details
Square automatically deposits the money in your bank account at the end of every business day.  There are no transaction limits or monthly processing limits.  You can click here to read more FAQ on their help page!

Several people I know personally have been using this device and love it.  An entire group from my direct sales company have been using this out in the Midwest and love it too.  That is important to me- tried and true!  This might just be the gadget to push me into the current technology era.  My cell phone is archaic.  Time to upgrade!

I hope this saves you time and money!  Enjoy!


  1. Okay, I downloaded the app and requested the Square. We'll see how it goes!

  2. Okay, I've received the Square AND I did a test transaction.! I'm really looking forward to being able to run cards DURING events instead of after! Two thumbs up for sure!

  3. AWESOME! I still need to upgrade my phone. Looking forward to using it!
