The Square swipes debit and credit cards.
I am really excited to be able to now accept debit and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, AmEx, Discover) at PDX Massage Therapy! I've been using "Square" for a couple months now, having learned about it from a client. The card reader, which attaches directly into my droid phone, is small and works via a simple, free app. I've been happy with the utter simplicity: all I need is my phone, the Square device and with a swipe of the payers card, I can accept their payment in less than 30 seconds. I spent so much time researching Paypal, Google Checkout and other companies offering credit card processing, and was dismayed by what an unwieldy process it is. But for my simple transactions, I've finally found a simple device and service. I can recommend square to any other massage therapist, or small business owner who needs to process simple payments in person. Here's a recent review from PC Magazine.
