If you’re wondering how it works, Square provides you with a pocket-sized credit card reader that plugs into your Android device’s audio jack. It works as a point-of-sale solution which replaces the normal credit card terminal you see being used in most retail locations. The Square service meets all industry standards for security, which means both you and your customers are protected.

When you receive the card reader in the mail and begin accepting payments, the app will automatically track each transaction, tax, tips, and payment location. The recorded transaction details provide extremely valuable insight into your sales. For example, you can quickly discover what items are most popular at what time or day of the week which in turn enables you to better serve your customers and build a better business, all with just a little upfront work.

The Square Android app accepts all major credit cards (Visa, American Express, MasterCard, and Discover). Pricing has been simplified to a single flat rate of 2.75% for all accepted payments, so there are no hidden fees, monthly payments, or other costs.

The Android app itself takes on an extremely minimalist design and is focused entirely on payment/transaction efficiency. The Square app proves that there is elegance in simplicity.
