So I have a smartphone. most people do these days. There are so many advantages. But my phone has a disadvantage. I have been WITHOUT an important operating system update because it had to be downloaded directly from Motorola‘s website to my phone via USB. Not an auto update. SO have I had the updated google app marketplace, no.
My carrier, the ol’ Tmobile is android based, and it is pretty nice. we get clear consistent service in our neck of the boonies. I like my phone. it has a slide out keyboard which makes texting easier. I text this girl A LOT.
I am hoping to get into Crafty Wonderland this year.
I have been trying to figure out how I was going to do credit cards, without having a laptop sitting there. In past craft fairs I have run credit cards through paypal while the people wait for it all to go through. It took a long time and the wireless was not always reliable.
I had been considering paypals options but a $30 fee has bitten me before. So here is what drew me into Squarre.
There is no monthly fee. You pay each transaction, and the fee is less than my online fees from paypal and etsy, you get the card reader for free also.
I needed to do this operating system update for my phone. I have been at it for nearly an hour after discovering the software info FINALLY. Lets not make it easy with a big announcement, “please update if you want ANY of the apps made after the year 2000.”
In order for me to run the Square app, I needed to complete this update. ugh. but I can have all kinds of cool apps like square! and I am all set to sell you wallets in the street! as long as you have a credit card handy, I take em all now…or I will when the square arrives at least…
my phone is lame. I don’t know why, but I can’t access any of the really great apps. so I am on the hunt for a phone that can handle me and this 21st century…
