Square simplifies payments with mobile devices


Several small businesses on Martha’s Vineyard are accepting payments with Square, “the easiest way for anyone, anywhere to take and make card payments on their mobile device,” according to a press release.

“With Square’s free credit card reader and app, local businesses are transforming their smart phones and iPads into a payments system and revolutionizing the payment process.”

“We use Square for our beach locations, rental deliveries, and over-the-phone reservations,” said Chick Stapleton, owner of Island Spirit Kayak. “Square saved us from having to spend thousands of dollars on hardware, and enables us to accept credit cards at multiple locations – plus our customers find paying fun.”
