So, I bought the "Square", which attaches to your cell phone, with the idea that having the ability to take credit cards would increase my sales.I don't own a cel phone, so I had to borrow my wife's. We tried it out the week before, and it worked great. We had to take her phone out of the rubber case to make a solid connection.
When offered the option of credit card use, people said;"What would it cost you ?" My response was 2.6%. They all declined to use it.
One woman even wrote me an IOU for $30.00, rather than use the Square.
Do you have any experience with using credit cards? Would this be an option for you?
This was a two day open studio sale involving eight other artists in a group where I live.Each artist was in their own studio and customers walked or drove to the various houses/studios. One other potter has the credit card machine that you swipe, with paper receipts.
