I am sure someone posted this before but i wanted to tell you about a company i found that was created by Jack Dorsey who actually invented twitter. The FREE credit card reader plugs into an IPhone or Android phone headset jack and allows you to swipe credit cards…without a monthly fee, interchange rates and so on…basically the fee is 15 cents + 2.75% for swiped cards and 15 cent + 3.50% for keyed in cards.
I can tell you the rate for the swiped is as good or better than my current merchant services at my kennel ( which I sold by the way ) and no monthly fee and it allows anyone to accept credit cards and it deposits the money right into your checking account.
Anyway…I see this as being HUGE for you that want to accept credit cards for your business without the huge expense of a card reader and trying to qualify for a merchant account with some bank.
You just visit the APP Store on the respective smartphone and search for “square” and download the free app. Then you visit www.squareup.com and finish off your account and they will ship you the free reader.
I can’t wait to try it at my next seminar…
