I thought I'd share these emails I've received from Square recently.
The first one is from about 2 weeks ago. They are acknowledging that chip card processing has been problematic for everyone. And they are promoting contactless payments as the alternative. And they lowered the price on their contactless reader. I don't think contactless payments are that widespread yet, even in my big city area. But I suppose it doesn't hurt for us artists to suggest that people try it.

And this one I got today. Now they are offering a FREE contactless reader for a limited time. I don't think this offer is available to everyone, just people who got this email. Existing customers only? Existing customers who purchased the unreliable plug-in chip reader? When I navigate to the Square website, I cannot find any mention of this deal. I hope this email went to all existing customers. Yes, I snapped up this offer right away.
