Monday Productivity Pointers: Accepting a payment with Square

This week’s pointer is all about Square payment processing.

Square makes it easy for small business owners to collect payments from their tablets or smartphones. Using a card reader inserted into the device’s headphone jack, business owners can swipe cards directly, turning their phones into mobile point-of-sale systems. There’s no monthly fee, and you pay 2.75 percent per swipe.

In the first video, I demonstrate how to add an item to the Square Register app, add a discount, and perform an ad-hoc transaction. I even show you how to swipe the card, and how easy it is to give your customer a receipt.
