Tarot for the 21st Century!
Okay, you have your table all setup at the psychic fair, Tarot cards ready. You've done your beginning ritual. Clients are lining up, you have you business cards out, maybe some fliers. Missing anything??
Or how about this; you arrive at your favorite coffeehouse. Unexpectedly, you bump into a former client or someone who knows you read cards and wants a reading.
You ALWAYS have you cards with you, they are right there in your purse or messenger bag/ backpack. But wait - in both scenarios they want to pay with a credit or debit card!
No problem! You grab your latte, sit down and pull out your Tarot cards. You whip out your iPhone or Droid, or iPad and swipe their credit card. Now you are all ready to go! You even email a receipt to the client ....all in under a minute!
Let's face it, less and less people are carrying around cash. Credit and Debit Cards are how most of us pay for products and services today.
Here's the perfect payment solution for the Tarot Professional - SquareUP. Up until now, PayPal has been my favorite payment solution ...and it still is for online sales. It has wonderful tools and is awesome for taking payments on your website. I have even logged on via my laptop at coffeehouse and taken payments right there with PayPal, but it doesn't come close to the speed and ease of SquareUp.
It works through an App on your smart phone or other hand held device. There is a tiny one inch by one inch card swipe reader, that plugs right into your earphone port! SquareUp mails the reader free, right to your door.
You go on their website: www.SquareUp.com and sign up for their service. It took me about five minutes! You don't have to give them your life story (in fact surprisingly little information), or wait to get "approved" for a merchant account with a bank.
You answer some easy questions to verify your identity and tell them where to deposit the payments, that's it! No setup fees, no monthly charge, no per transaction charge - they charge a flat 2.75% per swipe. Payments are deposited that night into your business, checking, or savings account ....wow!
So as an example, on a $45 reading, you would be charged only $1.24. The balance of $43.76 goes right into your bank account. I can live with THAT!
