Hi there, Jess Stratton here, and welcome to Monday Productivity Pointers. In the last video, we learned how a small business owner can create a portable point of sales system. Well, that same small business owner can enable their customers to use a separate app called the Square Wallet. That app will allow them to pay for their purchases directly from within the app inside the store. I'm going to show you how easy it is to set up Square Wallet today. Simply find out which people near you will let you use the Square app.
You don't have to ask every single store that you go into. Click on the app once you're in the store, and then again once you're at the register and your purchases are paid for. So let's get started. I've already downloaded the Square Wallet app onto my iPhone, and here it is. The first thing we want to do is allow Square to use our location so that you can find local businesses that use Square no matter where you are. If you have an account already, sign in. Otherwise tap Get Started. Put in your name, and you can add an existing photo or take a photo from your phone if you want.
Businesses will see this photo when you pay this way. Then tap Next. Enter your e-mail address and choose a password, and tap Next. Once you've done that, Square create your account, and it's up to you whether you want to get push notifications or not on your phone. Now, enter your credit card. This is a card that Square will use to pay for your items, so keep that in mind when you're choosing which credit card to use. You'll need the card number, expiration date, CVV number, and billing zip code.
Tap Save. Your card is now linked. And Square will immediately tell you what vendors accept Square Wallet, and how far away they are from you. You can tap each vendor to find out more information, such as hours, address, and even directions to get there. When you find a vendor you'd like to use with Square Wallet, tap Add to Wallet and your card can be used to pay there. So that's how easy it is to use Square Wallet. When it's time to pay in the store, a button will appear that says pay here. You can tell the sales associate your name and your done.
