It seems that small business owners have always struggled to compete with their larger counterparts. Whether it be for space in which to operate and grow their business, or for other reasons. One of the biggest hurdles through which a small business owner would have to overcome is what to do when they need to accept payments other than cash, but not enough of them to justify the installation and cost involved with a large point of sale system. The recent introduction of Square in 2009 changed all of that. Now, even the smallest business owner has the option to accept both credit and debit card payments whenever, and wherever they need to. With a swipe-system small enough to fit in your pocket, and Squares ability to be used virtually anywhere, Square has changed the way that the work does business.
