2 ways to get paid on the spot

Are you a photographer, performer, musician, or someone who provides paid services? How do you take payments from customers?

Today anyone with a smartphone can take payments on the spot.

There are two major companies that provide you with a free card reader and an app to take various payments: all major credit cards or even checks.

This service is available from Square and Paypal.
