Have you ever held a concert or fundraising event where you wanted to make EFTPOS transactions remotely?
If so, there is a new technology that you could use!
The Square card reader allows small businesses and vendors to process Visa, Mastercard, AMEX or even debit card payments by swiping the card through their mobile dongle which attaches to a phone or tablet through the headphone jack in their phone or tablet. A flat 1.9% transaction fee is in place for transactions, making it easy to accommodate fees for small vendors. At present, Square Reader is available in over 490 retail stores across Australia, including Bunnings and Officeworks and costs only $19.
For more information, please refer to the Square Reader Website for further information.
*Square Reader has been recently used by a Community Band at a concert with great success. Please ensure you do your own research and make a decision that suits your organisation. This information is provided by QBA in support of Queensland Banding - as such, we hope this information is of use to you and your organisation.
