Taking Payments On Your Mobile On The Move
The launch of Square in the States is pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved when it comes to taking payments directly from your mobile phone.
A few simple steps could get you online and give you the ability to do this.
1. Apply to square who then send out a card swipe device that plugs directly in to your Iphone audio input jack.
2. Then whenever you sell an item in store or on the move you just plug in the square and swipe the card
Its that simple.
Square also has the ability to track payments and repeat custom. The beauty of this is that you can access card transactions virtually anywhere and customers can receive their receipts via text or email and of course this is all the better for the environment and the customer doesn’t have a physical receipt that they could end up losing.
The benefits don’t stop there either; because customer data is tracked you can come up with unique ways to reward clients. This could be something as simple as donating money to charity of their choice every time they use you.
We are in the very early stages and they are currently in beta tests in select cities, San Francisco being one.
The company hope to roll this out fast though and as a UK ecommerce development company we are excited about this coming to the UK.
