square

Don't be a square, daddy-o. But do get a Square.
Have you had a chance to check these out? Last week, Square became available at Apple stores everywhere. And I had to snag one. They're only $9.95. Not even kidding you. If you're a craft fair vendor, you must get one of these little guys. (e.t.a. You can still get a free reader here if you sign up with Square.)
It's a tiny device that allows you to accept credit card payments ... anywhere. Square is compatible with with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android.
So yeah. Download the Square app, plug in the reader and swipe away. This is just too completely rad. And easy. And affordable. (It's about time!)

  1. Wow, this could completely revolutionize the craft shows that I go to! (Okay, maybe revolutionize it too strong of a word but it will definitely make things better.) There have been a couple of times that I have seen something that I was willing to splurge on but I didn't have enough cash and the vendor couldn't take credit/debit cards.
