Accepting payment for products and services using your iPhone or Android-based device is now a reality thanks to a new payment app called the Square.
The app is coupled with a detachable peripheral and once it is set up you will be able to use your smartphone to accept or make credit card payments even when you are on the move.
The Square payment app is not just for simple transactions, as it is also designed to help you manage your financial life, including providing the ability to create receipts and then email them to yourself so that your records are up to date.
The little peripheral slots into the headphone socket of your smartphone of choice, which means it should be compatible with the majority of Android-based mobiles.
A daily tally of your income and outgoings is recorded and you can be assured of security because the device and app comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
