Digg’s Kevin Rose is the newest investor in the Square iPhone payment system unveils by which you can accept credit card payment using iPhone. The combination of credit card readers and the iPhone could soon mean almost everyone can take credit cards, from hot dog stands to homeless people begging for change.

A cool new startup has come up with a handy dongle-plus-app combo that lets you authorize, accept, and process credit card payments anywhere, directly on your iPhone.

On his blog, Kevin Rose posted a video where he gave a demo of a new credit card system Square, a company that is releasing a credit card reader/iPhone app combo and that Rose is an angel investor in.

The process is simple enough, using an accessory which will connect to your iPhone using audio input jack just swipe the card you want to charge and then an app takes information from the swiper, and transmits it out for an actual credit card payment, with a finger doing the signature.The app, as Kevin says, will even upload GPS information, so you can make sure that payments are happening in the right place. Square is going to launch it’s beta version shortly this year.

Unfortunately, what he doesn’t mention is the actual price to get payments up and running. Square’s website says that there’s “no contracts, monthly fees, or hidden costs,” but they’ve got to pay for the system somehow, so you’d expect there to be a fee for setup, for the accessory, and then a fee per charge through the system, but we haven’t heard what any of those will end up being yet.

The device is tiny and very portable. It will be interesting to see what role the iPhone plays in our march to a paper money-less society.

Accessory maker Mophie also recently announced their own iPhone card reader, the Mophie Marketplace. Their device attaches to the bottom of the iPhone (Square’s uses the iPhone’s headphone jack).

    Hi,
    Thank you so much for the video. I think there is no need of carrying money or credit card with you all the time. An iPhone can do all the work. I would buy and iPhone as soon as possible .

  8. credit card repayment Says:

    In my opinion, Instead of using iphone, you can use android for use credit card repayments. I know that iphone is good but android’s app is so great. Many peoples would buy android as soon as possible.

    Researchers in nano-technology are working to construct molecules that perform movement in response to a specific stimulus. In contrast to molecules such as kinesin and myosin, these nano-machines or molecular machines are constructions like traditional machines that are designed to perform in a task.

    good read. I would
    say when giving advice to self pleasure to the bible you should recommend
    passages from Songs of Solomon. Some of that is pretty graphic.

    There are various types of loans available for general equipment financing. Coin operated Amusement equipment provides more fun to people and so the entertainment companies want to install it. The equipment not only provides fun to people but also provides revenue to the companies. Some reliable financing companies offer financial assistance at low interest rates to acquire the equipment.
