There is a new way to pay in the Denver area that is revolutionizing how small business is conducted.
Say you walk into the local Read, Write, and Brew coffeehouse, but you forgot your wallet or purse. With no cash and no credit card, you may think you are going to have to walk all the way back to your car or home before you can buy anything. Now, thanks to Square, that is not necessary if you have an iPhone, Android, or iPad on you (which are all much too important for a college student to ever leave behind, right?). You can just click open the “Pay with Square” app on your phone that is linked to your card and then open a tab at the coffeehouse. Jefferson, the friendly owner of the Read, Write, and Brew, will then see your chosen profile picture on his iPad cash register, verify that it is you, give you your favorite drink, and all you have to do is say, “put it on my tab!”
