I recently had the pleasure to photograph one of my good friends and extremely talented photographer, Mark Austin. Best of luck on your new adventure Mr. Austin!
Starting today, Megan Alexander Photography (MAP) will try and bring you up to date miscellaneous information every Monday. We’ll cover topics from music, movies, and entertainment; to gadgets, technology, Apps, and much, much more. In no way are we affiliated or sponsored by any of the products or manufactures we may talk about. We have not been paid or giving any free merchandise for our topics we may discuss. That being said, if someone feels like they just have to give us free stuff, we won’t hold you back…haha. Please feel free to leave comments or ask any questions.
So for our first ever miscellaneous Monday topic, I would like to talk about an App that a friend recommend called Square. In short Square is an application, along with a small ” square” device that plugs into a moblie phone headphone jack ,that allows you (small business owner, or just someone how likes to get paid more easily) to received credit card payments via a mobile device (IPhone, IPod Touch, IPad, or Android phone). Have you recently been to an Apple store and purchase something and noticed that the cashier who checks you out, does so with their Iphone? Then they email your receipt as well with the same mobile device? Well, that’s basically what Square allows you to do as well.
The best part about Square is the start up cost… there practically are none. The App is free to download, and once you setup your free account, they mail you (for free) your hardware. If you’re wondering what the catch is, well there isn’t one. There is simply a small percentage fee you pay every time you make a transaction (view their rates here). This way you are not bound to a monthly contract with anyone. It’s great for the small business owner, or someone who just cuts his neighbors lawn and wants to accept a credit card payment on the go.
