It's becoming increasingly less common for people to carry cash. We're all so used to flashing our phone for contactless payments, or simply handing over a piece of plastic whenever we need to make a purchase. In 2013, PayPal purchased the mobile payment service, Venmo, to help it take the next step into payment future. In the same year, competing transaction company Square launched their own “Square cash” solution, followed quickly by Square Cash for business.
The Square cash app is designed to help people accept payments quickly and manage money with their friends. It's also one of the easiest ways for today's versatile merchants to accept payment via mobile.
Like most of the products in the Square portfolio, Square cash is a simple, tech-focused platform intended to make life just a little bit easier. If you think it might be the best way to upgrade your transaction strategy, read through our Square cash review to find out more.
