Square Wallet Makes Shopping Personal & Rewarding
March 20th, 2013 by Nicole
A wallet should do more, according to Jack Dorsey; the creator of Twitter is trying to revolutionize how we pay for products and services – hands free. He thinks a wallet should do more than hold our credit cards, checks, receipts, and such – it should build relationships and earn rewards. Paying for goods just got cool.
What is Square Wallet and How Does It Work?
Square Wallet, the software at the store knows when your smart phone has just entered the building and you don’t have to pull out your credit card or smart phone to pay. Simple say your NAME!
Install the app and discover a directory of places that accepts Square Wallet’s technology. Enable the hands-free checkout and simply say your name when checking out with your purchase.
“In Square’s Wallet app, you can set up your account such that when you get close to a shop you frequent, your geo-aware phone “opens a tab,” and your photo appears on the shop’s Square-enabled register. Walk in and order and say your name; the cashier sees your face and charges you via Square. You’ve never taken a thing out of your pocket.” (www.wired.com
