I aspire to it.
I am so envious of people who are REALLY computer savvy.
Although I will admit that I try. My kids laugh at my nerdiness......I think they expect someone my age to be resistant to technology, not smitten with it.
I wanted a wireless credit card machine, until I called the bank, and found out that they cost around $800.
I crossed that off my list. But I still figured that there was another way. So I googled.
And I found SQUARE, a different way to process credit cards. And all I needed was a new phone.
Well, THAT was easy, since I have been lusting after the new Iphone, ANYWAY.
So off I went to the Verizon store, and ordered up my new Iphone 4S.
Which came in the mail. I got it in white.
I downloaded the app for Square in about 3 minutes.
Square was free to sign up for, and they sent me the attachment that I needed, for NADA.
The attachment plugs in to the top of your phone, and you swipe the credit card through it.
Once you've swiped the card, the screen asks for the amount, and gives you a place to sign it, with your finger.
You get to put in the cell phone number, or your email address.
We have taken a test drive with it, and the receipt comes to you almost immediately. The money is deposited into my business account, and they charge 2.75% for each swipe. There are no other fees.
I LOVE IT. Easy, and problem solved. No more keying in credit card sales the day after a show, wondering if all the cards were valid. They usually are, but it is nice to know up front.
I have had a few cell phones, but this is my fave. I love this new Iphone. It is the easiest one I have ever used.
NOW if I could only get my Icloud to work.
Guess I will have to wait for my 14 year old grandson to figure it out for me.
Just in case you thought I knew it all.
