Angie’s List and Square Bring Mobile Payments to MarketplaceJanuary 31st, 2013 by DWM Magazine
Angie’s List, the national consumer review service, is working with Square, the payment company, to enable mobile payments in the field, as part of its services offered via the Angie’s List Business Center mobile app.
The Angie’s List Business Center app allows companies to accept payments in the field, track e-commerce purchases, create invoices and respond to member reviews as soon as they appear online. Merchants will also have access to free analytics reports.
“Working with Square will help provide happier transactions for our members and service companies,” said Angie’s List founder Angie Hicks. “We’re excited to work with Square because they understand what small businesses need to succeed.”
Square offers a free credit card reader that allows anyone to accept credit cards anywhere, with one transaction rate of 2.75 percent per swipe. Funds from swiped payments are typically available the next business day.
