Square Inc. is shipping card readers again. What is Square? The service allows small businesses to create accounts and either key in or swipe customers' credit cards to pay for products and services. Businesses create an account, and once approved, begin accepting payments from credit or debit cards. Square promotes that it does not require a contract, monthly fees or any hidden costs.
Receipts are sent electronically to customers. There are even some customer and transaction tracking information available. Square states that it complies with all PCI security standards regarding customer information. "Smooth, Even, Steady" is Square's tagline and my greatest wish for all of your business endeavors.
