That lil’ guy on the left is called Square. This little gadget plugs into the headphone jack of a smart phone. You swipe a credit card, enter an amount, the customer signs on the phone’s touchscreen then enters their e-email address or cellphone number for delivery a receipt, and it’s done!
So, YES, we take credit cards.
We already did accept credit via PayPal at our web site. That was not convenient at the cart, however. Customers first had to type in their 16-digit credit card number, expiration, the 3-digit code–which is bad enough when you’re typing on a smart phone–but then PayPal also required them to enter their name, address, e-mail address and more, as if they were buying something at RadioShak (why does RadioShak want all that information anyway?). PayPal will still be available to pay for delivery orders and other payments, but Square will be used at the cart.
So, starting this morning, City Dogs is once again better than ever. Come down and celebrate. It’s going to be a great Friday.
