Square is probably seen as the smallest and most recognizable credit card readers available in the market today. It is approximately the size of a book of matches and fits in to the audio jack of most iPhone and Android phones. The app and device are free to use, therefore all the money goes directly into the bank. The credit card looks sleek and is simple to use as well. Square’s payment plan is simple as well, with every credit card swipe, it takes 2.75%.
Intuit GoPayment is quite similar to Square, however there are two factors that make them different from each other. Square works only with iPhone and Apple devices, while Intuit GoPayment also works with blackberry devices. However, only the app can be used on blackberry devices, not the credit card swiper. This option gives larger businesses an option of a monthly fee with reduced rates. Like Square, the app and device are free, thus the money goes directly in the back.
