Have you checked out some of the new credit card processing technologies? For those of us who would like to be able to take credit cards occasionally, there are lots of new options. One is Square, which has a tiny (about 1” square) attachment for your iPhone, iPad or Android that will scan credit cards. At only 2.75% for processing, no monthly fees, and next day deposit to your bank account, it’s something you might want to check out. There have been great articles about the company in The New York Times, Forbes, and Entrepreneur.

I was at an event recently where my friend and virtual accounting client, Vickie Mullins, used Square to process my purchase of her great book, I Want You to Know Me. She ran my credit card through the little gizmo and when I got home I had an email receipt waiting for me.

How are you processing credit cards? Do you have a better solution to share?
