As Paypal announced they pay with phone feature square has done the same.
I will try tomorrow !
There is this new small bakery just opened near my sons school and not having enough $ for registers they use the square pay method. I have had an account since day one.
Anyway I usually do not use my card with them as I know they charge quiet the fee (for a crossaint or bagle REALLY?) but with the pay by phone I will have to try. I will order 2 marble rye breads and pay by phone.
Now paypal has that feature as well and I love paypal. Can't wait for businessses to use that option.
But then Apple tries to get their own going with iTunes.
Square and Paypal had to announce their versions before Apple did just so to get a jumpstart. If the next iPhone will offer that service we are in for some exciting changes. I can't wait to go to a supermarket have the sensor tell me Good Morning Mutter and all I do scan my food on my phone walk out and it is paid for coupons applied. Have a great day Mutter ........bling at the Notification center Mutter your total is $19.47 you saved $5.25 with your discount today.
