Although I did not attend to MacWorld Expo to experience and view the exhibitions, but there are blogs and news on MacWorld throughout the events. We now list a few innovative products that were found on MacWorld Expo that we love.
Square is a mobile credit card service that is very innovative! With iPhone, little card reader, and a Credit card. That’s all you need for billing your customers, anywhere in the world. Previously I have posted a video on Kevin Rose demo-ing Square, but that time alots of details are still not confirmed.
To use square, download their $1 App in App Store, sign up for the service @ their website, and they will send you a small dongle which will be used to swipe cards. Key in the amount and bill the customers, no individual merchant account is needed as Square does all the payment process, but at a fee of 2.9% of all sales.
Currently Square is still on beta, and will most likely be launching end of the year, stay tuned for updates!
