How do you guys currently accept payments for cakes?
Has anyone used "Square" or "Paypal" card readers to accept payments?
I have square and paypal payments and use both. I love the square reader, it's very convenient. I took a payment through it yesterday using my phone.
I love Square and it is not pricey at all. reverse the charge to the customer.
The other post the OP has written was about designing some kind of cake software, so I assume that the question about payments is part of that overall process. I wouldn't call it spam until it starts to have lots of links to sell said software.
I mean it's pricey compared to what I pay with my merchant services company. My prices already do reflect the charges, because after quoting a $500 price for a cake, I'm not going to say, oh and by the way, that will be $14 extra for running your card. (that's based on 2.75% -- not sure what the square charges these days).
Sorry, I wasn't clear -- when I said 2.75% I was referring to the square. I pay about 1.5 %. In my business, I never swipe a card -- all my transactions are manually entered, so the square is quite a bit more than what I pay.
