The card is processed on site, so you don't have to worry about lack of funds after the fact etc. like the old system with the credit card slips and slider machine.

My big question is this: Do you think that you can increase your sales per customer substantially by offering a credit/debit option? Will they increase enough to justify the additional transaction charge? I don't use my credit cards much so I'm at a loss!

Thanks in advance for your help!
Are you talking about Square App? A friend of mine that was set up next to me had it and had lots of people pay by card and so did my friend that I shared my booth with. Everyone that paid by card thought it was the coolest thing. I had my card scanner but my phone was being stupid so I didn't get to try it out
