Let me hit the basic points. Square App - Mobile Credit Card Reader is a FREE credit card reader for any iOS or Android handheld. Yes - that includes iPhones or even iPod touch! You can setup your account in mere minutes and POOF - a few days later check your mail and they'll be a nice little package with the tiny (roughly inch x inch) mag strip reader.
All you do is plug it into your phone's 1/8" outlet (where your headphones usually plug in) and login to the free Square App. It's literally that simple and amazingly enough - it's completely safe and secure. It is just like you were ordering a pizza or coffee - you even have the option of emailing the purchaser a receipt... with is certainly a nice touch. Having said my part and ensuring that I fully support this product, hhere are the details...
