SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 6, 2012) - Square, the company making commerce easy for everyone, and now available in Canada, will be the official payment processor for artists and designers selling at Vancouver's craft fairs this fall. Square enables anyone, anywhere in Canada to accept credit cards, run and grow their business.
Square provides individuals and small businesses with free technology and tools to increase sales and engage their customers. Customers no longer have to worry about carrying enough cash, and merchants will never miss out on a sale. This fall, hundreds of vendors and thousands of event goers will experience the benefits of buying and selling with Square at these Vancouver markets:
"We're thrilled to use Square in Canada. Typically Make It is a cash-only event due to the complexities and cost for accepting credit cards. Square makes it incredibly simple for merchants to accept all forms of payment with easy-to-use tools right on their phone," said Jenna Herbut, co-founder of Make It.
Square's free Mobile Card Reader plugs into the headphone jack of an iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Square Register is the free app that allows anyone to safely and securely accept credit card payments with one simple, low transaction rate of 2.75% per swipe and no hidden fees. Merchants can sign up and start accepting credit cards in minutes. Funds from swiped payments are available the next business day, eliminating the wait for cash flow.
