Default Re: Square - Accept Credit Card Payments through smart phone?

I still struggle with the swipe part. It seems pretty touchy to me. Sometimes it takes me a time or two to figure out I have the magnetic strip facing the wrong way. Oops =)
I seemed to have more luck when I tried to do a faster swipe vs. a slower one.

Do you mean 15 to 20 swipes to go through? I never try that many. I give it a few swipes and if it doesn't take I just punch everything in. Otherwise I think the customers get nervous to see you swiping repeatedly - worried it's charging multiple times, etc.

Most customers think it's pretty cool, and I've had some comment that they prefer that to a vendor writing down their cc#.

I did a few test runs with it and I'm having a hard time with the swipe... where it seemed to take 15-20 for it to go through. Did anyone else have this problem and does it get better as you get used to it (and swiping faster)?
