5.0 out of 5 stars Now I can accept credit cards with or without the chip and Apple Pay!!!
Reviewed in the United States on October 19, 2017
As a mobile spray tan owner, I no longer have to worry about clients not having cash on hand, me not having the correct change on hand, or the client deciding to purchase retail products that I have on hand. This kit includes the Contactless + Chip Reader to Tap and Dip, the Magstripe Card Reader to Swipe, USB charger for chip reader, manual and Square sticker. Setup is easy and simple. I love that there are no hidden fees, only a flat rate fee of just 2.75% per transaction. Also, love that I can input my inventory in as well. Oh, just an FYI because I wish I had known upon setting up my account, but new Square members can get fee free processing on up to $1000 in sales during the first 180 days by the referral link shown in my picture ;) Just passing along the savings I definitely recommend getting one for the small business owner!!!
Update: Since my purchase, I am really impressed with how long the charge lasts and how easy it is to use. I also love, love, love the free inventory that Square offers.
