SquareUp with your iPhone/iPad or iPod Touch

David Pogue from the NYTimes outlines the benefit of taking credit card purchases right from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. A company called Square has made a free solution for the iPhone and iPad that allows the device to swipe or type in a credit card and take payments right into your bank account.

This is a great solution for the small business. I have it for my consulting company. Square takes a percentage (though smaller than most credit card companies at 2.5-3.5% of the purchase) and a $0.15 processing flat fee.

Interesting enough, it does bring up questions about why don’t people consider Square for their garage sales, bake sales and payment for the landscaper. It makes payment easy, cool and protects the seller and “store”.

Have a iPhone and a small business, seriously consider Square.
