Mr. Dempsey of Twitter has invented a terrific new gizmo called Square Up. Even the little guy/gal can now process credit cards on the fly using their smartphones. If you have a mobile salesforce, this is definitely something to investigate. This service really targets the implusive buyer, who may not have cash on them at the time (or would just prefer to use credit). The nice thing is….the “square” is free! And it generates electronic invoices on demand!
Those of you who do tradeshows – this is a must! If you are a service provider (plumber, computer geek, etc.) also terrific for additional revenue. It is an accounts payable department on the go (reduces labor costs), gives a digital record for you (great for accounting) and keeps you in control! Also fulfills the keeping “green” – eliminating paper and reducing your consumable expeditures (printer cartridges, paper, etc.).
This is also terrific for artists, craftspeople for those local shows.
