I'm considering starting a small freelance business as a makeup artist and learned about Square and thought I should share. If you are a person who can't afford a card reader but does have a smart phone (Android or iPhone/iPad), you can accept credit cards via Square. Download the app (Square) and visit squareup.com to get a free card reader (a "square"). There are fees, like everything on earth, but they're not too bad. $0.15 + 2.75% on anything you swipe through your square, somewhere under 4% for keyed-in card numbers. As a makeup artist, if I charge $50 for a makeup application, I can run the client's card right there, in front of them and pay only $1.50. That's small potatoes. So if you're a person who does a lot of craft fairs or sells a lot in-person, you should think about getting Square for your smartphone. I have no affiliation with them, I just think it's neat and mega useful.

So I checked out Square.  I am so excited to try it!  I'm going to order it this afternoon.  Hopefully it will get here in time for my ginormous show in 4 weeks  Undecided

Thanks for finding out about this and sharing it with us!!!!!  Grin

Hey, that IS neat, thanks for the info. If I was going to look for this thread again, I would search for...credit card payments, so I'll just write that now, thanks.
