With Square you can email OR text a receipt to the customer. The
text gets to them immediately. They find that really cool. If they
want a paper receipt, get a cash receipt book from Office Depot and
write them one out. My customers have been happy with that
arrangement. Some don’t want any receipt at all.
When I get home from the show, I have emails that x amount of $ was
deposited into my square account. Then about Monday or so it is in
my bank account.
If you are in a bad reception area, you can take down the card
number and enter it by hand later. The rate is just slightly higher
to hand enter the number. In doing that, you don’t have immediate
verification that the card will be authorized. That is your risk.
You CAN take phone orders/email orders by doing the above. Make sure
the emails are encrypted and secure if you do so.
If you want to keep track of your CASH intake you can add that into
your square ap also. Then at the end of the week/month/ whatever…
Square will have a spreadsheet of it all for you.
NEW sellers are restricted to the $1000 a week. After 30 days the
rest of the money is deposited into the bank account. They will
increase your amount. There is a FAQ area at squareup.com.
I am real happy with it. I had to upgrade my telephone. Right now it
only works on i-phone/i-pad or Droid-based phones. I didn’t have to
buy anything from Square or pay any monthly fees. I only pay the %
when I make a charge, and that % is cheaper than the other credit
card companies that do make you either buy/lease a machine and pay
