Canadian Festivals and Pop-Ups Flock to Square for On-the-Go Credit Card Acceptance

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 13, 2013) - Artists, musicians and crafters are choosing Square for easy and on-the-go sales at outdoor markets, pop-up shops and festivals. More and more Canadians are forgoing cash in favor of credit cards, and Square offers sellers a free credit card reader that enables anyone to take payments on their mobile device to capture lost sales and attract new customers.

Great Canadian Craft Inc uses Square at their crafting events across the country and will be empowering sellers at this week's Fall into Craft event in Vancouver.

"We chose Square for our events because quite simply, they offer the most user friendly system out there. Our vendors and customers love it," said Mark Brown Organizer Great Canadian Craft.

Square makes it easy for anyone to accept payments no matter the size of their business and helps business owners to track sales on the go. Customers love Square for the convenience and memorable shopping experience.

Festival revelers can leave their cash at home for these great events this September:

Starting with a free credit card reader for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, Square Reader allows anyone to accept credit cards anywhere, anytime, for a low transaction rate of 2.75% per swipe, with no hidden fees. Square Register, a free app, serves as a full point of sale system for businesses to accept payments, manage items, and share menu and location information.

Founded in 2009, and headquartered in San Francisco, Square is currently available in the U.S., Canada, and Japan. More information is available at
