SquareNo longer do you need a credit card machine, or even a laptop, for that matter, or even a merchant account to accept credit card payments in person.  Now, all you need is a smart phone and a little plastic credit card swiping device.

Square, is a revolutionary service that enables anyone to accept credit cards anywhere. Square offers an easy to use, free credit card reader that plugs into a phone or iPad. It’s very simple to sign up. There is no extra equipment, complicated contracts, monthly fees or merchant account required. Simply sign up for an account, get your free card reader in the mail, and start swiping. You can accept all credit cards with no hidden fees and no commitments.  This service is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android.

If you go to conferences and sell materials or sell from a speaking engagement, Square is an ideal solution for processing transactions if you don’t have a credit card swipe machine or a virtual terminal and WiFi connection for your laptop or netbook.

Square allows you to accept unlimited payments. There are no limits on transaction size or number of transactions. They immediately deposit your first $1,000 of sales per week to your bank account. The remaining amount above $1,000 will be deposited into your bank account within 30 days of the transaction. Of course, you do have to link to a bank account for this to happen.  As of this writing, Square charge 2.75% of the transaction as its service fee.
