Square and Twitter Co-Founder Jack Dorsey views payments not only as an exchange of value, but also as a form of communication.
Published June 13th, 2011 | UPDATED June 30th, 2011
Although everyone can relate to money, says Dorsey, very little thought has gone into design and user experience for payment transactions. Dorsey shares his desire to build a cohesive point-of-sale system that is far more useful for merchants and customers.
Square is the simplest way to accept credit cards. It’s easy to use and comes with a free credit card reader for your phone or iPad. Square is currently available in the U.S.

Sign-up is quick. No complicated contracts, monthly fees, or merchant account. When you swipe cards with Square there is just one fee: 2.75%.

we were able to start using it that same afternoon.”
