    Yes, i often use mobile payment services, to make bank transfers to my friends, booking tickets and recently i had also started to buy products via mobiles, it's quick and fun!

    I think future of mobile payments is definitely bright, just because now a days most of people have a smartphones, which allows these payments more secure a well as feature rich!

    I use square to accept credit cards from clients when they say I'll send you a check. I usually just say hey might as well get the points for this and they think for a second and say **** $3,500 in points here.

    I also use square. It's really the best option for smaller offline marketing firms that are always on the go. You don't have to go through a long application and paperwork process like traditional CC processors. Just give them your basic information and start accepting cards through your mobile phone the next day. They give you a free card swiper to accept cards on-site and you can also manually enter CC numbers and take payments over the phone. (They do not have an affiliate program)

      Still a long way to go for this technology and I'm waiting for it to go mainstream.

      I don't know what's happened to Google Wallet and whether it expanded it's operations or not, but supposedly you could pay with your mobile with that.

      Square seems like a great product aswell.

      Like I said, still a while till it goes mainstream and I think one day you'll be paying for items with your facebook account or something.

    I just ordered my square card reader today. The application process was easy and free. I can't wait to start using it. I wish they did have an affiliate program. I would be all over that.

      CC processors have wireless terminals as well, w/ built in thermal paper for receipts. Does live processing or batch if you happen to lose a signal. Just compare rates for this and square mobile phone setups to see what's best for you.

      It makes sense to get the decisionmaker's money on the spot rather than give them an oppty to back out or have to hassle them to send you a check. Plus they get the points! haha

      That is a great feature of Dwolla. We added them to our site. All transactions are $5 so the processing is free.

    Square is awesome. Keeps great records and is there when you need it. You don't have to lose a sale. Have your iPhone or iPad and away you go!! Your customer signs the phone or iPad......with their finger!!!! Love it!!
    And send receipts to their email or text. It's sweeeeet. :-)
    Check it out.

    I enjoy making payments online using my cell phone. Mobile payment is fun, safe and also consumes less time. Many people talk about security. Yes! That is a concern to many of us. However, till now I have no problem with mobile payment option. There are many cart shopping applications which has made mobile websites user-friendly for customers. Next time you shop, use your mobile phone.
