You may have heard of Square, which is the device which allows small businesses to easily accept credit card payments anywhere, from anyone. The creators of this neat device have a new service you can use to send and receive money quickly — from anyone!
Square Cash allows you to quickly send money between friends. You could also get paid for your business (without the need for the credit card reader). There is no worry about cashing out or waiting for your money. With Square Cash, it is quickly deposited right into your bank account. Best of all, it is free if you are sending between friends. If you are a business, the fee is just 1.5%!!
What I love about this is the ease of payment if you are a freelancer or business owner. Rather than deal with those pesky credit cards, someone can just easily transfer payment directly to you – with a simple cashtag.
What is a cashtag? A cashtag is a special name that you create which allows you to both send and receive money. No need to give out a personal email or anything like that. You simple give the person your cashtag and they can send it to you. As a business owner, you can even put that right in your payment options, including invoices and business cards. Now, your customers can pay you quickly and easily!
You can use these in a variety of ways! You could easily split the cost of dinner and your friends can pay you back via your cashtag. You could set up a fundraiser using a cashtag. You could even share a video and ask for support for your band with one! The ideas are truly endless!
What is great about the Square Cash cashtag is that it can be just about ANYTHING you want (as long as it is available)! Just head HERE and see if you can get the one you want. Then, get the app for your Apple or Android device and then start sending and receiving money the simple way.
With fewer and fewer people carrying cash and our money all being “in the cloud”, this allows you to get the money you owe to someone right away, without carrying those extra bills around. Just think about how great it would be to not have to hunt around for an ATM (and then pay fees) so you can give your buddy the $25 you owe for dinner and drinks! That in and of itself is a savings!
The one question people ask me is this “is it safe?” Yes. They use 128-bit encryption and a TouchID or passcode to access your account. You link your Visa or MasterCard Debit card to your account. Then, you are connected! If you send money, it will come from that account. If you receive anything, it will also go through your debit card! How easy is that!?!?
Signing up is simple. You just enter the cashtag you would like to use and then follow the steps. They will send you a code via text or email. Enter the code and you are in! Update your profile information and then you can start to share your code!
So, what are you waiting for? Hurry over and see if your cashtag from Square Cash is available!!!
