Do you run a small business? Do you sell your art at conventions or festivals? More often than not, there will be customers who only have cards on them, and no cash-- and that's a customer lost, if you don't have a way of accepting payment. The Square card reader is a great, free device that will let you accept credit cards right through your iPad. All you need is a wifi or 3G connection. You sign up, and Square will send you the adapter. This small plastic accessory fits into your iPad's audio jack. Download the free app, and you're ready to go. There's no monthly fee-- Square just takes a small percentage of each sale. Start selling!
