Shop Talk | Collecting $$

Welcome to day twelve of our shop talk series!
Etsy and bigcartel use paypal for completing transactions for orders. You sign up for a paypal account and your money goes from your shop to your paypal account and then you can deposit it into your linked bank account. Paypal is safe and easy, I have used it for 10 years -since my old eBay days!

What I am really excited to tell you about is an awesome app called

I love square. This free app works with your iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone! They will send you a free credit card reader that plugs into your headphone jack and swipes credit cards for a small fee!

Bring it to dinner with friends and charge your friends' credit cards when they forget to bring cash! HAHA! Just go to sign up - super easy. They will mail out your card reader, perfect for boutiques, trunk sales, home shows, flea markets, and craft fairs. I love how it let's the buyer sign right on your device with their finger and emails a receipt to them instantly with my logo and shop information on it!
Happy selling!
