Now Accepting Plastic

I just received my first ever credit card reader in the mail!  I am really excited to have this device added to my business.  I think this is going to be a big help to me when it comes to shows.  I had been thinking about getting one for a while but was hesitant due to expense questions I had and wanting to really be sure this was a safe and secure method of payment.  I wanted it to be worth the endeavor and I think this totally is!  I had compared all the different options (I think) that are out there for being able to take credit payments through a smart phone.  PayPal Here was the best option for me, especially since I have had a business account set up with them already for my Etsy shop.  I tried it out with my own card and it could not be more simple to operate!  Plus, I love that you sign with your finger!  After the sale goes through I can give the customer the option to receive a receipt via e-mail, text, or not at all.  I am bringing this with me for my spring show in Maryland this April, but I plan to use it with the iPad rather than the phone.

  • That’s so cool! We have one of those in Java now 🙂 although we don’t send the receipt by phone cause there is a charge. But I don’t know if PayPal has charges on that; we use Square.ReplyCancel
