Accept Credit Cards Anywhere

Print Friendly

As a freelance designer; I have looked at several “get paid anywhere” devices for my iPhone. I started off with Square, then found intuit GoPayment, and more recently I found PayPal Here which was slightly better than the other two.

All three of these services work with a device that plugs into your headphone jack of your smart phone and an app in order to work (or they charge more for Key Entered transactions). Both the device and app are free; the companies make their money off of your transactions. They all charge a fee per transaction.

Now I found one that doesn’t even require a device to plug into your phone to work (a good backup for the times you find yourself without the little device): flint.
