Tech Tuesday: Square Register

Square Register mobile point-of-sale system.

Unless you’ve been under a rock the past few days, you know I’ve just signed on with Square Register to sell my Ultimate Simple Healthy Fresh Cookbook (and maybe Flavored Peppers) in addition to the paypal link on this website.  Now, when I’m out and about I can accept credit card payments on-the-go!  Now on Square Market:

Take payments

Swipe or key in all major credit cards. Record cash, gift cards, and other forms of tender.

Customize your Register

Organize your products or services for faster checkout and easy reporting.

Track your sales

View your complete sales history from the app.

Delight your customers

Customers sign and tip right on your device, and can choose to receive an email, text message, or printed receipt.


Card-processing systems adhere to the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).

Stopping fraud before it happens

We stop fraud via live monitoring programs that analyze transactions as they’re happening. This is known as risk visualization. The approach helps us detect and investigate suspicious activity before a fraudulent charge takes place. This method is not only a pioneering way for us to protect merchants, but it’s also a better way to build an automated system to detect criminals that will scale as our business grows.
