Are You Carrying Around Too Much Gear for the Job at Hand?

Does your storefront travel with you? Do you need a way to get paid while you're out in the world? Check out this great tip for processing mobile payments.

One gadget making waves these days is the mobile credit card reader. If you sell your products on the move or need to lock down vendors at the point of sale, consider investing in one of these speedy and secure payment devices.

These small accessories attach to your smartphone or tablet, turning it into a fully functional credit card reader. By using one you can eliminate the need for a large or costly standalone payment system.

Top brands such as Square and bitter rival PayPal Here provide similar services, with Square owning a bigger chunk of the market and Here boasting a slightly lower commission per swipe — 2.7% for Here, versus 2.75% for Square.
