Square

19 Nov

From the creator of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, comes the most revolutionary product for independent, small, or mobile business to ever hit the market. Behold Square.  Square is an iPhone application that allows anyone to accept payment by credit or debit card using the signature Square Swiper. Square also comes with some groundbreaking functions such as the saleman can use facial recognition to verify the name of the cardholder with a photo of the client, the client then can supply a signature directly on the iPhone, and lastly the salesman can send a receipt directly to the client’s email address tagged with a GPS location. You can purchase the application in the iTunes store for one U.S. dollar. The Square Swiper is free. With each transaction, one U.S. penny is donated to a charity of your choosing. It is an amazing concept that should be coming out of beta testing soon and eventually taking the business world by storm. Look for it everywhere from the pockets of entrepreneurs to the pockets of overly ambitious street corner drug dealers. Learn more about it in the following videos or here  www.squareup.com

    Couldn’t agree more Zac. It will really help those using craigslist and/or garage sales too.
