  1. I wonder how this service compares to Square? I think Square has just one fixed price for all transactions. That’s odd you’d get penalized for selling more. That sounds like something that could backfire.

  2. From what i read on square site they only give you option of high rate. If I do a lot if sales it’s a bad deal so I’m looking at gopayment options which look better.

  3. Wishing these types of services were available in Australia… Have been looking for a good iphone app/card reader here, but not many (if any) options I can see.
