If you want to use Square Payments you’ll need a Square Credit Card Reader For Ipad. A Square Credit Card Reader For Ipad reader fits into your iPhone, Android Phone, or iPad. It shoves right into a slot or hole in your device. The reader has a slot for you to either swipe or insert your customers credit. It’s pretty simple to use and it only takes a few seconds. Here is what a square credit card reader looks like. You’ll see in the picture that it simply fits into your phone and lets you swipe a credit card. Actually you will likely need several of these. You may lose one and need a replacement. Or you may have a credit card reader that malfuctions.
A Square credit card reader case is also something that you may want. This protects your credit card reader and keeps it from getting dirty. You’re outside selling your products and you may get dust or dirt in your area. If you’re at a farmers market, beach, concert or outdoor mall this can easily happen. So putting your reader in a case to protect the slot where the credit card slides through is a good idea. When you make a sale you’ll slide your customer’s credit card through the slot and you don’t want dirt or lint or other foreign matter to get in the way.
