Square, a tiny credit card reader, plugs into a smartphone or iPad turning your device into a point-of-sale cash register. It allows you as an individual to collect funds via a credit card. Setting up an account is pretty painless. The software will send the buyer a receipt, and keep track of your sales. It can track cash, too. This minimal arrangement is perfect for the solo and small business person selling at crafts at a fair, or swag at a concert, or antiques at a garage sale, or food from a truck.
