Selling Books with a Mobile Card Reader
“I was at a book festival recently and sat next to a man who had one of those little credit card readers on his smart phone. He said he got it after he’d been at another festival where a potential customer had only credit cards with which to pay, no cash or checks. While I’ve found that most folks who come to festivals are prepared with cash, some with checks, I realized it would be uncomfortable to have to turn away a customer because I couldn’t take their payment. I decided to research the card reader options and thought I’d share.”
While people accustomed to book festivals, harvest fairs, and art-in-the-park kinds of events may be used to bringing cash, newer customers might not. Melissa Bowersock provides a quick overview of your card reader choices so you’ll be ready for the credit card customers.
